Video of Old Faithful from boardwalk trail

Yellowstone National Park’s most famous geyser - Old Faithful - erupts every 90 minutes or so, with water spewing more than 100 feet high for anywhere from 1.5 to 5 minutes. Most people see the geyser from the Old Faithful Boardwalk, so it’s a crowded path. 

Instead, watch it from the Observation Point Trail. There are some steep spots, but crowds are smaller, and you’ll see it from a unique vantage point. 

Here's a vintage video of Old Faithful as seen from the Old Faithful Boardwalk, taken during the 1950s:
