National park tips: It stinks, but this Yellowstone spring is one of my favorite places
Of course you’ll do Yellowstone’s Old Faithful. But you also should head 7 miles north and visit Grand Prismatic Spring. It’s the largest spring in the park, about 300 feet across, and its boiling deep blue waters, fringed with yellow and orange crust, give off billows of steam that envelop you as you pass on a raised boardwalk. If you have time, climb one of the two neighboring ridges for a bird’s-eye view.
