This webcam also showcases the Upper Geyser Basin, one of the most unique and dynamic places on earth.With about 300 active geysers, this area has the largest concentration of geysers in the world.
Old Faithful, named by members of the 1870 Washburn Expedition, was once called “Eternity’s Timepiece” because of the regularity of its eruptions.
Despite the myth, this geyser has never erupted at exact hourly intervals, nor is it the largest or most regular geyser in Yellowstone National Park.
It does, however, erupt more frequently than any other of the large geysers.
