CASPER, Wyo. — Yellowstone National Park may have been battered by floodwaters in June, but beauty continues to abound in this national treasure.
Professional photographer Chris Fabregas captured a beautiful moment on Sunday when a Yellowstone bison leisurely strolled by Old Faithful as the iconic geyser was erupting.
“Yellowstone Park and the geysers are an incredible thing to see, the wonders of nature are amazing!” he wrote on his Instagram. “Especially when this bison walked by exactly when Old Faithful erupted!”
“That bison is a PRO!! Summer shows every hour on the hour!!!” denisemrosen said.
“haha, he knows exactly what he is doing!” Fabregas responded.
“Old Faithful geyser was named for its frequent and somewhat predictable eruptions, which number more than a million since Yellowstone became the world’s first national park in 1872,” according to Yellowstone National Park Trips.
The geyser’s eruptions, lasting between a minute and a half to five minutes, reach an average height of 130 to 140 feet, but can vary from 100 to 180 feet.
