  • Yellowstone lake is huge one and its around 20 miles around. We took several stops where there was spectacular views. Its a beautiful view and drive

  • What a beautiful lake!! The sunrise and sunset here are absolutely stunning.

  • Beautiful but cold lake. Was very cool to see.

  • Really big and beautiful lake. It’s still an iced lake when I was there, but I think it should be pure water now. You can see this lake from different angles. Now you might be able to take a boat through bridge bay. You can go to west thumb to see how geothermal landscapes merge with lake and it’s really awesome!

  • There is nothing I could say that could better describe the beauty of this lake inside a beautiful park. Hard to miss if going through the park but make sure and stop.
