Watch A Bison Stroll By The Old Faithful Geyser Right As It Goes Off At Yellowstone

Bison Yellowstone

Something about this video just feels poetic.

For one, there’s a bison at Yellowstone National Park that’s not getting harassed by moron tourists (a little different compared to the incidents we’ve seen the past couple weeks), and roaming freely in its natural habitat, all while Old Faithful, Yellowstone’s historic and beloved geyser, shoots off in the background.

Needless to say, the tourists who were able to witness the beautiful scene couldn’t have been more lucky to witness Yellowstone’s nature at its finest.

According to For The Win, photographer Chris Fabregas was one of those lucky tourists who was able to capture the moment on camera, where he posted to Instagram.

He wrote in the caption:

“Yellowstone Park and the geysers are an incredible thing to see, the wonders of nature are amazing! Especially when this bison walked by exactly when Old Faithful erupted!”

According to Yellowstone’s website, Old Faithful was discovered during the Washburn Expedition of 1870, and erupts every 35 to 120 minutes for a time spanning between 1 1/2 minutes, to five minutes.

It’s maximum height reaches up to 90 to 184 feet.

Although it’s not the biggest individual geyser, or the most regular geyser at Yellowstone, it’s the biggest regular geyser at the park, which is what sets it apart from the rest.
