This was a scenic stop and the first time I saw geysers in the park. We strolled the boardwalks and took the path that splits to the left from the main one that leads to the parking lot. We did not complete the entire loop but saw most geysers up close and the rest from an enjoyable distance within 45 minutes. The restrooms here are "outhouse" style with hand sanitizer, as many in the park are.
The West Thumb Geyser Basin is a good warm up for the mayhem of Old Faithful and the associated geothermal activity around that area. Spend an hour or two strolling along the boardwalks, marvelling at the complex colours of the various hot springs and enjoy the unique vista of fumaroles in the lake, with the sweeping mountains in the background.
