The Grand Prismatic Spring offers one of the most stunning views in the Yellowstone National Park. It is the largest pool in the park and the third in the world. It is located in the Midway Geyser Basin and its major feature is its amazing coloration, caused by bacteria, living on the edges of the mineral rich water. The pool is about 370 feet/113 m in diameter and is 121 feet/37 m deep. Several smaller springs are located in close proximity.
Going past the grand Prismatic Spring the day before, we quickly made the decision to hit this as our first stop this morning. Although the temperature dropped off from the previous day and because of the cold temperatures and the boiling water of the geyser, it created this super eerie ambience. It made the experience more unique than usual and added to this astonishing surrounding. A short ride down the road from the Grand Prismatic Spring,
Fairy Falls is one of the tallest waterfalls in Yellowstone National Park. They say don’t go chasing waterfalls, be we couldn’t resist! Shortly after you pass over the bridge near the trail head, you will come across the sign pictured above. We proceeded to go straight to Fairy Falls. What we should’ve done was follow everybody else to go to the Outlook and then proceed to Fairy Falls. The more you know! This hike was a moderate trail and we were more worried about running into a bear (we had no bear spray) or a moose than anything else. We were literally the only ones who chose to go against the crowd and we were hiking alone. Which in itself, is a blessing and a disguise. After spending about an hour hiking and hoping we were going the right way, as we enjoyed the peace and quiet of the morning golden hour, we reached Fairy Falls.
