Steamboat Geyser Erupts!

One day last week the most amazing thing occurred in Yellowstone. A geyser erupted. This wasn’t just any old geyser, even though these things are blowing off water and steam all the time around here. It’s what Yellowstone is famous for. Only about a half dozen are predictable, and of these only Old Faithful reaches heights of up to 120 feet. Rain or shine, night and day, predictable Old Faithful goes off about every 90 minutes.
