Old Faithful Geyser
On September 18, 1870, a group of explorers gave the Old Faithful geyser its name.
During the 1830s, legendary mountain man Jim Bridger returned from Wyoming’s remote Yellowstone region with fantastic tales. He claimed he had seen waterfalls that spouted upwards! While many didn’t believe his story, some were excited about what they heard and launched expeditions to see it for themselves.
