3rd Stop – Checking Out the Geyser Basin

You might want to consider a Ranger-led Geyser tour of the Old Faithful Geyser Basin. I Did and Learned A Lot! The Geyser Hill Walk is about a 1 1/4 mile walk and takes about 1 1/2 hours. Geyser Hill offers the greatest concentration of geysers.

HUGE Disappointment

Told that the Grand Geyser should be going off this morning (around 10:20 am). So took a seat on the benches at 9:45 am to get ready for the BIG SHOW and waited and waited some more. Left at 11:45 am and here’s the HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT; Grand went off at 12:05 pm – Dang, Bummer!!!
