Old Faithful proved yesterday that she’s still faithful to Yellowstone National Park visitors. Did you hear that a small earthquake jolted one of the park’s most popular attractions yesterday?
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a 3.6 magnitude temblor occurred just before 10 a.m. yesterday morning with the epicenter located about 6 miles north of Old Faithful. There were plenty of visitors in the park when the earthquake happened.
The great thing about Old Faithful is that the geyser collected itself, regained its composure and erupted later in the day.
That’s the way it’s done. That geyser has been erupting every day since it was first discovered in 1870. Probably before that – we just noticed it in 1870. That’s reliable. That’s doing the job.
We’re surprised that someone hasn’t forced Old Faithful into retirement due to age.
