Check out Yellowstone's most popular geyser

Old Faithful is Yellowstone's most popular phenomenon.  It is located in Yellowstone's Upper Geyser Basin and is famous for being a consistently predictable and astonishing geyser.  Reaching anywhere from 100 to 180 feet in the air, it's truly a sight to be seen.  

It is 2 hours and 15 minutes away from Jackson Hole, and right up the road from the Grand Prismatic Springs.  Upon arrival, you'll see the steam float and hiss above the earth even in it's most calm state.  Each eruption occurs every 35-120 minutes. However, even if you miss it, it still feels well-worth your time due to the surreal nature of the landscape.

Jackson Hole, WY
Emily Coleman is a Jersey girl born and raised who caught the outdoor bug upon moving to Vermont to pursue a degree in Adventure Education and Environmental Studies from Green Mountain College. She spent most of her years before college deeply entrenched in the world of competitive cheerleading before discovering a passion for outdoor sports including mountain biking, white water kayaking, bikepacking, backpacking, slacklining, rock climbing, and skiing. Having been surrounded by children her entire life in her mother's daycare, she always had a strong affinity for kids. She moved to the mountains of Jackson Hole after graduating to coach for the local Kayak Club during the summers and nanny in the winters. Becoming a part of the Happy Active Family team felt like the perfect collision of her passion for building strong community bonds and encouraging an outdoor lifestyle.
