The Old Faithful geyser is supposed to blow about every 90 minutes. People gather around on benches to wait, and it is a big deal. The morning we were there, it was supposed to start at 10:04am, but it began at around 9:53am, so it's better to go early and wait. The actual blow was not such a big deal as far as I think. Dad saw the earlier one from the bathroom window when he took his shower, and he said it lasted or longer. So I guess it just depends.
After Old Faithful, we took a hike around the area where there are many geysers and other steamy pools to look at
We headed out for more geysers and to look for wildlife. Some of the geysers were called "mudpots" and they were pretty smelly. We haven't seen as much wildlife as we thought we would. There are a lot of bison here and they don't really impress me anymore, especially after our Custer drive. We did see an elk in the distance crossing the road and a coyote when we went for an early evening drive in the rain.
The new campsite is better than the first one we stayed at. There are a lot more trees and more space between sites. Lucky Dad got the tent up and the rain fly on right before the storm came tonight. We didn't get wet at all.
*this is what Morgan Freeman said about Yellowstone Park in a movie Dad and I watched about the Park before our trip. After walking around the geyser area, I see what he meant!
