Location: Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
Yellowstone Falls was first, then I turned west and visited Obsidian Cliff and Roaring Mountain. Both were interesting, but not quite as amazing as the South end of the park. I spent a little time checking it out and headed off to the Norris Geyser Basin.

Although you can't touch the geysers themselves, you can feel the distinct heat that each gives off. Some are very hot while others are warm. Some might not prefer the smell; sulfur. The smell does help you realize that these geysers are very deep and have extensive underground networks though!
The landscape was unlike any other landscape I've ever experienced. I've seen a fair amount of volcanic activity in the Hawaiian Islands and in the Cascades of Oregon and Washington, but nothing like Yellowstone. Between Old Faithful and Norris Geyser Basin, I would recommend the latter.

Now its off to the Tetons!
