2021—Old Faithful in the Snow

After a visit to West Thumb by Yellowstone Lake, we arrived back at Old Faithful in time for its afternoon eruption in the midst of a snow storm. Old Faithful is becoming less faithful as the complex underground geyser plumbing has changed but it is still a spectacular sight. This image does not show the peak of the eruption but the aftermath as it sputtered to its end with voluminous clouds of steam billowing in the breeze and with snow falling in the foreground.
