This 1-Mile Hike In Wyoming Is Full Of Jaw-Dropping Natural Pools

If you’re interested in geology and geography, there’s no better place to explore than northwest Wyoming. Here, in Yellowstone National Park, you’ll find the largest collection of geysers, hot pots, mud pots, and hot springs in the entire world. While the popular trails that show off Grand Prismatic and Old Faithful get overrun with crowds, if you escape to the little known Artist’s Paintpots Trail, you’ll be able to see these thermal features up close.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
