Yellowstone National Park is home to nearly 500 thermal geysers. This park actually contains the majority of the world’s geysers, which happen to be a fairly rare phenomenon.

You could spend weeks visiting all of the geysers in Yellowstone. We spent two entire days exploring Yellowstone’s geysers and we didn’t even scratch the surface.

I was fascinated to learn all about these geysers and what natural conditions are necessary in order to form a geyser.

The geyser needs extreme heat (usually from a volcanic source), water (stemming from an underground source through cracks in the earth) and a plumbing system (the water needs to be held somewhere while it is heated and there needs to be a fracture in the earth for the water to escape).

If you are planning to visit the Old Faithful area, the park service provides a phone number with geyser predictions. If you time it right, you will be able to see a few of these amazing geysers erupt, which is truly an experience not to miss.

The Yellowstone Geyser Prediction number is (307) 344-2751.

    I just love Yellowstone; I can’t wait to return.  Still when I went to Waimangu Volcanic Valley in NZ, I was blown away by how NEW the area is; even more than Yellowstone, it seems like the earth and water are percolating! If you haven’t been yet, definitely put it on your list!

    Happy Sunday,

    Wow! Gorgeous. We’ve never been to Yellowstone, but it is high on our list to do a road trip through the US and take in all the amazing national parks that it has to offer. Yellowstone has shot to the top after your photos. I never knew it had so many.

    Incredible, I love the different colors or blue, orange, and green that make up the scene of the geysers. Great photos!

  8. Stunning shots! I can’t believe these are real. Scrolling through them again!

    Amazing shots.  It is hard to believe these things exist in real life – even when you are standing right in front of them.
