SEASONS

Old faithful is the most visited feature in all of Yellowstone. For the life of me, I don't know why. I've seen it in just about every season and it has an appeal, which to me is mediocre at best. If I had to pick a season I would choose winter, at least you won't be mobbed while you compose your shot and wait for the eruption.

Perhaps you can break the mold here. Perhaps a star lit sky with light painting of the geyser as it erupts. Just go for it and amaze us all.

 

TIMES

 

In Yellowstone the constantly changing weather and geothermal conditions control the light and with it your opportunities. Old faithful is one of the few geothermal features that runs "on time" so to speak. So pay attention to the clock in the visitor center, and be there on time.
