Old Faithful Geyser of California

About every 30 minutes, visitors to the Old Faithful Geyser of California are treated to an eruption of steam and scalding water spraying 60 to 100 feet in the air. There are only two other “old faithful” geysers in the world that have earned the title due to their regular eruptions. This geyser has also proven itself to be a good predictor of earthquakes. When the geyser’s show is delayed or diminished, an earthquake is likely within the next couple of weeks in the 500 miles surrounding the geyser.

The grounds surrounding the geyser feature a large picnic area where visitors are encouraged to bring their own lunches. There are also a snack bar and a gift shop on the property. Old Faithful Geyser makes for a wonderful family outing and features a petting zoo that includes the famous Tennessee Fainting Goats, Jacob’s Four-Horn Sheep, and Guard Llamas. Old Faithful Geyser of California is open every day including holidays. Hours are 9 AM – 6 PM (‘til 5 PM in winter). Website at www.oldfaithfulgeyser.com.
