This is the most famous of all the geysers in Yellowstone Park. It is possibly not the most spectacular but it is the most regular about every 90 minutes it squirts hot water which can reach a height of between 30 and 55 meters. Its eruptions last an average of 2-5 minutes. It is a complete visual spectacle (the smell of the gas is not so nice).
This extraordinarily beautiful landscape is due to thermal waters surging from the earth and leaving calcium deposits in a variety of colors. There are dead trees which have been caught in the midst of this thermal area and add a scenic, almost minimalist touch to the panorama.
To go walking leisurely through this parade of colorful wells and springs with a camera in hand and enjoy the views is a more than recommendable experience.
The statue of Buffalo Bill is located in the town of Cody, Wyoming. The city was founded in 1896 by William Frederic Cody (better known as Buffalo Bill). This statue can be found at the bottom of the main street of Cody right next to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, honoring the most famous man in the history of the Wild West. Born in Iowa in 1846, he moved to Kansas as a young man where, in 1863, he enlisted in the 7th Cavalry to participate in the American Civil War. He received his famous nickname after 1868, when he won a bison hunting race. In the following years, having killed hundreds of bison, he became an actor after a friend wrote stories about his deeds and asked him to perform in them. He soon achieved worldwide fame for his performances.
Geysers are a major attraction in Yellowstone Park. Some really do look like small volcanoes. If you're going to visit the park, be sure to check the schedule beforehand, so you know when a geyser is due to blow. White Dome Geyser is one of those "regulars" that offers visitors an hourly show. Nearby, the Great Fountain is much more temperamental and disappointing.
