Ollie the Otter Gets to See the Old Faithful Geyser at Yellowstone National Park!

After seeing Devils Tower, Ollie wanted to see more sites.  The group agreed and they headed to Yellowstone National Park to see Old Faithful.

A cone shaped geyser, Old Faithful was the first geyser in Yellowstone National Park to get a name.  It was named in 1870 during the Washburn-Langford-Doane Expedition.  Both the geyser, and the nearby Old Faithful Inn are part of the Old Faithful Historic District.

Eruptions can shoot 3,700 to 8,400 US gallons of boiling water to a height of 106 to 185 feet, lasting from 1.5 to 5 minutes. The average height of an eruption is 145 feet.  Intervals between eruptions can range from 45 to 125 minutes, averaging 66.5 minutes in 1939, slowly increasing to an average of 90 minutes apart today.

As you can tell, Ollie and his friends had a fun time today.  I'll bet Ollie's favorite part was eating at The Old Faithful Lodge.  What do you think?
