Old Faithful

We went to Old Faithful on the last day in Yellowstone.  It was so fun! Old Faithful erupts about every 60-110 minutes.  It erupts 140 feet in the air, but has been known to erupt 190 feet.  Old Faithful was named in 1870. It was the first geyser to receive a name. The water temperature was 244 F°, proving that the geyser really lives up to it’s name.

    Dear Ethan – Old Faithful shoots up a lot higher than I thought. Is Old Faithful the largest geyser in Yellowstone, or is it just the most famous? What is the largest if it isn’t Old Faithful? I don’t actually know the answer…I learn a lot from you!

    Sincerely,

    JPC

    How does Old Faith erupt? Have you seen it erupt? How close did you get to the volcano? Did you have fun ? Sounds like a really fun place to visit.
