Roadtrip to Yellowstone: Day 2 - Old Faithful

Up until this time, our exploration of Yellowstone had been mostly confined to driving around and stopping to take photos. Here, however, we were able to stretch out our legs and followed the boardwalk. We were scared to take a longer trail because we arrived past 1 pm if I am not mistaken and we have a long way to go to our stop for the night. It was very tough to visit this huge park in just a couple of days. You would not be able to see all. As a matter of fact, you see very little. We decided that for the very limited time we had, the Old Faithful area is the one to spend the most time in. After all, to us, this is the centerpiece of the park.

There are approximately 10,000 thermal features in the park, among them are hot springs, geysers, fumaroles or steam vents and mud pots. Old Faithful erupts more frequently than any of the other big geysers averaging 76 minutes interval between eruptions. We were lucky that it started to erupt when we just got there.
