|Viewing Area in Front of Old Faithful Geyser|
With everyone in their seats and a large crowd assembled around the perimeter of the viewing area, the Old Faithful Geyser started erupting right at 12:05 PM. (pretty consistent, I think)
We initially thought we'd only watch Old Faithful and move on to our next destination, but once we looked at the trails and attractions map for this area, we knew that we would be here for a bit.
There are many, many geysers, pools, and other hydrothermal features to see around the park, and a WHOLE bunch in this area. I spare you from looking at too many of these and just post a collage of a few in this area.

As we walked down the boardwalk to begin our tour of this area some other folks told us that we had just missed seeing a very large bison walking through the area. We caught a brief glimpse of him as he was heading into the treeline to our left.
By now, we were tired and ready to call it a day!
Thanks for stopping by to take a look.
