The Old Faithful is aptly named, for it has been spouting water at a time period of approximately 91 minutes for the past 150 years since its discovery. It is a conical geyser found inside the Yellowstone National Park and is one of the most famous landmarks of the United States. Each day crowds of tourists flock to its site, to experience the mesmerizing wonder. The water can reach a height of 184 feet (56.0832 meters). Interestingly, it was used in olden times to wash clothes, due to its ability to eject perfectly washed cotton and linen materials at each eruption.

Camping, fishing, tubing or hiking; the waterfalls, woods and creeks of the Forest present countless avenues for a memorable trip.

This mammoth mountain range elevates from 6,400 feet to 13,700 feet of phenomenal granite topography. One may encounter mountainous animals like the elk, bear or the iconic bald eagle during nature walks.
