TBT: Old Faithful

With eruptions coming seventeen times daily, Old Faithful is one of the most recognizable sights in any of our national parks. No more than we had pulled into the parking lot, than this world famous geyser began erupting more than 100 feet into the air. Of course, we all ran to get up close and snap a couple of pictures.

With eruptions occurring every hour to hour and a half, we grabbed an ice cream cone and waited for a repeat performance. This time we got an even closer view and enjoyed feeling the mist from Old Faithful’s spray.

It seems perfect to post this picture today since we will soon be in Iceland, the home of the world’s first “geysir” (to gush in Old Norse) documented in print. Soon the pictures of Old Faithful will be accompanied by those of Geysir, Strokkur and other features of the hot springs of Bjarnarfell.
