You’ll be surrounded by pine, mountains of a grand scale, and bubbling geysers and feel like you're in an alien land as these gurgling pots make their presence known all around you. At Old Faithful, stand back and enjoy the show. And if it’s winding down, rest assured that Old Faithful will spout up again shortly.
