What I did
We arrive at the Old Faith Geyser location. It is quite the tourist spot. There is a huge parking lot, beautiful lodge, gift shop, food locations, plus other amenities. All very well taken care of considering the thousands of people that visit every day.
Old Faithful is the most consistent geyser so far and probably the most well known of the geysers at Yellowstone, it goes off proximately every 90 minutes. When we arrived, the next eruption was in a little over an hour. We take the walking tour as there are hundreds of geysers and pools all over
We finish the walking tour and go back to Old Faithful. We wait about 20 minutes for its eruption. It goes off and it also is pretty amazing.
We are tired, hot, and hungry. There is a picnic area next to the parking lot that we head for. We eat our lunch, take a breather from all the walking and the sun and head back to the campground and Chuckie and Louie.
We also visited the gift shop and most of us picked up an item or more. It was a another great experience.
At the campground, everyone rests a bit. Have dinner, then sit around the campfire until we are ready for bed.
