Itinerary description

A short walk through a very interesting thermal area. One of the most interesting erupting geysers we saw at Yellowstone was active during the visit. Yellow wildflowers more abundant than other areas and bloom up to the edge of thermal pools in some places.

The hiking trails to Mystic Falls start at the west side of the boardwalks (see numerous other Wikiloc for Mystic Falls Trails).

Recorded in early June 2019 using the free Wikiloc off-line Wyoming State Map. Many places in Park are outside Data and WiFi service areas.
