Hello ParkLover.  Great question!   Eruptions often occur about 90 minutes apart all day every day, but can range from 45 to 125 minutes without much warning.  All predictions are made using a formula that takes into account the length of the previous eruption. The formula which is completed by the National Park Service has proven to be accurate, plus or minus 10 minutes, 90% of the time.  The prediction information is only posted during the open-hours of the Old Faithful Visitor Center and uses the length of the previous eruption to predict the time of the next eruption.

The NPS has put up a "webcam" so you can try to catch a glimpse of the eruptions as they happen at home.  But you really need to be there in person to experience the wonder!

American Forks Canyon in Alpine is the only recreational mining spot in Utah. The best location is above the Tibble Reservoir. To get there you take the Alpine Scenic Loop up the canyon and past Timpanogas cave. East of the cave you will find a fork in the road and turn left towards Tibble Reservoir. In Wyoming there are several mining locations the best among them is in the Douglas Creek area in Albany County. We’ve provided you with the southern counties and available links to their chambers of commerce. In southeast Wyoming there is Carbon, Goshen and Laramie. In southwest Wyoming you can go to Lincoln County.

Lighthouses

There is no symbol of the Maine coast more stirring than the lighthouse. Whether rising tall on the mainland or on a tiny scrap of rock many miles out to sea, these beacons have guided mariners through Maine’s many rocky ledges and pea-soup fogs for more than 200 years. ...
