>  Old Faithful Geyser of Yellowstone National Park
Uploaded by: Joe On: Sep 17 2006, 05:01 PM Views: 1145 · Comments: 0
Old Faithful is the most popular attraction of Yellowstone National Park. Although it is the most photographed and most talked about, Old Faithful is not the largest or most grand geyser.

This famous geyser got its name because of its punctuality and predictability. Old Faithful erupts more frequently than other large geysers. Contrary to popular belief Old Faithful is not the largest geyser in the park. Eruptions at Old Faithful last anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes, and sprays water and steam up to 184 ft vertically. The average interval of Old Faithful was every 76 minutes. An earthquake occurring in the winter of 1998, effected the time interval of Old Faithful. Eruptions now occur approximately every 80 minutes.
