I’ve seen aerial shots of Grand Prismatic Spring before. The spring looked magnificent. However, when I was up and close to it, it wasn’t so impressive. I heard there is a trail up a hill which offers pretty look view. Yet, the trail was closed when I was there in April. This time, I decided to find this vantage point, second best to take a plane ride. It turned out that there is no official trail. A short but steep off-the-road track near the spring can take one up a hill. From there you can have a nice view of the gorgeous Grand Prismatic Spring.
