The most sought after attraction in Yellowstone is Old Faithful. Old Faithful was named as early as 1870 and is probably the most famous geyser in the world. Gushing water 32 – 52 meters for 3 – 10 minutes. When 14,000 – 32,000 liters of water are thrown into the air. The water temperature reaches around 120 ° C. Old Faithful is an geyser that gushes between 40 and 120 minutes. Most often, however, about 65 or 90 minutes. It is calculated from the previous interval. In the information center are also written geysers, which is to gush

The most sought after attraction in Yellowstone is Old Faithful. Old Faithful was named as early as 1870 and is probably the most famous geyser in the world. Gushing water 32 – 52 meters for 3 – 10 minutes. When 14,000 – 32,000 liters of water are thrown into the air. The water temperature reaches around 120 ° C. Old Faithful is an geyser that gushes between 40 and 120 minutes. Most often, however, about 65 or 90 minutes. It is calculated from the previous interval. In the information center are also written geysers, which one should gush. The dominant folk building is Hotel Old Faithfull and I can recommend it. There is a souvenir shop inside and the interior is beautiful. We just got here when Old Faithful broke down. So we had time to go around the other lakes. It was a lot like the Norris Gayser Basin, but all of a sudden I look at it and show, „Look over there.“ It was incredible, because I've had different ideas about geysers so far. The local lakes were probably the most active. Some of them even managed to hit me. So we return to the Old Faithful Old Faithful. In a moment, over 1,000 people gathered here for the spectacle. We all waited for it and then it came. It was beautiful to watch. But I was a little disappointed. He wasn't as tall as I'd predict. Not even as all the brochures say. Personally, I would guess that in our presence the geyser was 20 meters, because the unexpected thing we saw was once so tall. But it's still a beautiful sight.

Water bath

The impact of the water bath goes to hundreds of meters. The height of this geyser was estimated at 30–50 meters.

Although the ponds look attractive. It is deadly to bathe in them.

Some of the geysers are extremely active, such as this one, which gushes water around 3 meters.
