Day 14-2 Travel as I Have Envisioned It Could Be
Provided here is a series of photos of the eruption of Old Faithful. The whole event lasted close to ten minutes, and most of the time, the geyser was at its full height. It started up slowly at first then quickly built to its full height—I would estimate about 30 feet.
At the end, it shut down promptly.
If you open the gallery and click through the sequence, it will provide some idea of how it looked. There is, however, no substitute for being there. The sounds associated with the eruption—the “whoosh” and the quiet roar—certainly add to the experience.
