did 6/3 open and snow free but muddy so make sure to wear hiking boots. tons of wildlife such as bison and elk frequent the area. Hiked from fountain flats parking lot at the next Perez picnic area to fairy falls and imperial geyser out to the Grand prismatic overlook parking lot and hitched a ride back to the car. totaled 9.2 miles hiking. BRING BUG SPRAY. I think this is a much more senic version on fairy falls as you see the falls as you walk to it. there was noone on the trail. took 3 hrs 15 mins
