If you confused of the destinations which worth to visit in Yellowstone, 3 fun places don't miss. Best getaway package around Yellowstone you may need.
Lakeshore Geyser and Lakeside Spring
Lakeshore Geyser boils vigorously and almost continuously. The geyser frequently erupts, but only a few feet. The geyser is located next to Yellowstone Lake - follow the outer loop of the trail which passes right next to it. The Lakeside Spring features a palette of colors, ranging from blue to brown. A blue-green pool of thermal water runs off in a brown-yellow spring. Heat-loving microorganisms provide color to thermal features.
Seismograph and Bluebell Pools
Seismograph and Bluebell Pools are located at the West Thumb Geyser Basin in Yellowstone. The two pools are blue in color. The Seismograph pool occasionally collects mud from nearby mudpots. Both can be viewed from the outer loop of the Trail. A steep grade connects the outer loop boardwalk with the inner loop. The two pools are located next to that grade. The bright blue color is due to extremely high temperatures, usually around 165 degrees F.
Fishing Cone is a hot spring that got its name because men would fish in Yellowstone Lake and then boil their fish in the hot spring on the lakeshore. It can be viewed from the outer loop of the West Thumb Geyser Basin Trail which passes next to the lake. Clearly, fishing is no longer allowed here in order to protect the hot spring from damage and ensure visitor safety. The Big Cone peaks out and can be observed from the outer loop.
Black Pool Is Bright Blue in Color
Black Pool at the West Thumb Geyser Basin is one of the most beautiful pools in Yellowstone National Park. It is bright blue in color with steam rising from its hot surface. It got its name when it was actually black. Until 1991 water temperature in this pool was lower so that it was inhabited by dark green and brown thermophiles, which gave the pool black appearance. Water temperature rose in 1991, followed by several eruptions, which made it too hot for thermophiles. Today, the feature is quiet and a popular attraction. The Abyss Pool is 53 feet deep and is one of the deepest hot springs in the park. It was named in 1935 by Chief Park Naturalist C.M. Bauer. It has sloping walls that vary in color from turquoise blue to green and brown. The attraction has gone through two active periods. It erupted in 1987 and several times in 1991/1992. Since that time, it has been quiet.
