A visit to Yellowstone would not be complete without watching Old Faithful erupt. So, that's what we did today. There are many good places to see the eruption, but we think the best is from the second floor porch/deck of the Old Faithful Inn.
After each eruption, the Park Rangers estimate when the next eruption will occur. We checked the board as soon as we arrived at Old Faithful Inn and discovered we had about a 3 minute wait. We hurried up the stairs and planted ourselves on the porch to get one of the best shows Yellowstone has to offer. We were not disappointed.
The drive to Old Faithful takes you past the Firehole River and the beautiful Firehole Falls. Nearby rivers were named by Lewis and Clark. I wonder if they named the Firehole River? It's very descriptive as Yellowstone is certainly a fire hole.
