We're talking about the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park. This is one of the largest hot springs in the world but is extremely dangerous. Even though some folks might think the beautiful rainbow colors of the spring seem inviting, you'll regret getting too close.

The Grand Prismatic Spring is one of the main draws of Yellowstone National Park, but some folks don't treat this area with the respect it deserves. A few years ago, a few people left the bridge to walk in the outer rings of the spring and were arrested. You should stay on the trails and bridges because the ground is unstable and could collapse at any moment. You can fall through even stable-looking ground. The water is so hot, it will instantly cause severe burns or death.

The Grand Prismatic Spring is a great choice for one of the most fascinating places in the United States, but Montana has one other spot that deserves recognition.

The Gates of the Mountains, between Helena and Great Falls, should be recognized as one of the most fascinating places in Montana, and possibly the U.S.

The Gates of the Mountains is a location surrounded by high peaks that you can rock climb, incredible scenery, and a canyon in which you can float the Missouri River for days. It's a gorgeous area that not many folks know exists.

Montana is filled with fascinating places, so take your pick. What do you think is Montana's most fascinating place?
