    #1 Hint: It is on a dirt trail in the Old Faithful area. It's a geyser but we've never seen it go off.

    #2 Fairy Falls - Correct

    #3 Champagne Pool in Waiotapu Geothermal, New Zealand - Correct

    #4 Lone Star Geyser - Correct

    #5 Imperial Geyser - Correct

    #6 Is on a paved trail in the Old Faithful area but kind of remote and all by its self.


    So I guess we're celebrating with Champagne instead of Tea or Punch! ;)

    Default Since I did so well on that last waterfall...



    Rez is not so good. Any takers on this one?

    One hint: Getting to these pools is easy -- gentle hike about 1/2 mile from paved road.

    This looks like the falls drop into a hot springs area so with a quick google search I was able to find them and they are indeed hot spring pools. I'll give others a chance to come up with the correct answer. We've been in the area a few times but not this spot.

    Default a little different about the source

    Megan and I have been here 3-4 times. There is something a little different about the source of the water for this waterfall...

    It's a warm waterfall from a hot spring! So cool!

    What year were you there? I've read a mud slide has done a lot of damage and I'm not sure the pools are even a thing anymore. :(

    Okay, time to close this out (bearing in mind these are merely my best guesses):

    #1: Spasmodic Geyser (I love the name!)

    #6: Anemone Geyser (or possibly Little Anemone?)

    Well, are you guys gonna share the location of your cool/hot springs waterfall, or do the rest of us have to keep guessing? ;-)

    Sorry Rick those are not correct. I thought after Mark got Champagne Pool for #3 others would get the rest of the subtle hints I gave in post #220.

    "I'm sure you detectives will be able to google the rest. ;) Should we celebrate with Tea, Punch or Champagne?"



    #1 is Artemisia Geyser that can be found if you keep hiking on the dirt path past Morning Glory Pool in the Old Faithful area. Artemisia is also a tea

    #6 is Punch Bowl Springs which is also in the Old Faithful Area It is a short side trip on the trail leading west from the Daisy Group loop.



    So to recap - Yellowstone - off the beaten path

    #1 Artemisia Geyser



    #2 Fairy Falls



    #3 Champagne Pool, Waiotapu Geothermal North Island, New Zealand - the one not in Yellowstone



    #4 Lone Star Geyser





    #5 Imperial Geyser





    #6 Punch Bowl Springs

    Hidden Waterfall Fairmount Hot Springs, British Columbia.

    When I went looking for the source is when I found this blog that tells all about it.

    BUT then I also found where there had been a mud slide and it looks like it's not what it use to be.
