West Thumb

Geyser Basin

The West Thumb Geyser Basin sits on the shores of Yellowstone Lake and extends into the Lake too. Get on the boardwalk, the hardest decision is to go left or right and once that is decided just walk in a big loop; takes about an hour to make the loop.

The Famous Fishing Cone is famous because back in the day a man was fishing in Yellowstone Lake for trout and the trout fell in the cone and raised to the surface of the cone boiled. NO you cannot do this today!
