Welcome to Geyser Watch

An Online Field Journal by Yellowstone Naturalist


In 1872, Yellowstone became a National Park, in large part because of the amazing thermal features.


There are thousands of thermal features in the park – how do you know what to see other than Old Faithful? And when you’re walking the miles of boardwalks, how do you know if there’s something special to see?


Geyser Watch is here to help.
