About this spot
Shell spring is one of the thermal features found in Biscuit Basin as you walk the boardwalk past Sapphire Pool and Jewel Geyser. Many people overlook this area on the way to the Upper Geyser Basin and Old Faithful, but it is well worth the effort and houses one of the most beautiful springs in the park, Sapphire Pool.
