The "Essential" Yellowstone National Park

At an RV/travel forum I belong to, a question came up from a member who has only 2-3 days to see Yellowstone National Park. The question he asked was: What do we NEED to see at Yellowstone?

He wondered what were the "essentials".

My reply was this:
Having been to Yellowstone twice, what I consider "essentials" for a visit are: 
1. Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone: Upper and lower Yellowstone falls. 
2. Old Faithful Geyser. 
3. Old Faithful Inn (right next to the geyser). 
4. Upper and Norris Geyser Basins. 
5. Mammoth Hot Spring Terraces. 
6. Lamar Valley. 
7. Yellowstone Lake. 
8. Gibbon Falls. 
I'm sure I missed a few things.
If you are contemplating a visit to Yellowstone, the above places are the "must-sees" while you're there.

Here's Yellowstone's official website:

While you're in the area, you should also visit Grand Teton National Park, since it is next door to Yellowstone.
