Monday was our day to go to Old Faithful. If you go to Yellowstone it is a must do. The most popular sight here in the park. And because of its popularity is why coming to see it is ruined. I say ruined for Lisa and I because this is strictly our personal experience and our opinion. What I am talking about is the over crowding. This area might as well be smack dab in the middle of Disney. Don't get me wrong, I love Disney. But when we go to Disney, we know there will be crowds and we are prepared for it. When you are in Yellowstone, you don't expect to see this.

While we were waiting, we got to see another geyser not far away erupt. So that was a bonus. I am not sure of the name of this one. I thought it was Steamboat Geyser but I was corrected.
This geyser is very near the boardwalk, so if you are lucky enough to be close to it you can get geyser snot on you. That one really erupted with lots of pressure. It must have been young.
Finally Old Faithful did its thing.
After Old Faithful, the crowds dispersed and headed to the parking lots. Total grid lock as everyone was trying to leave at the same time. We then headed to the Grand Prismatic Spring. But it was too crowded for us to even get into the parking lot. Off we went to go to the more quieter parts of the park.
So that was our blow hole experience.
