Detailed Description

Up until the 1950s, visitors to the Old Faithful area could take a dip. Not at a geyser, but in a real swimming pool. The full story is in this month’s video update. 

During the month of May 2024, the University of Utah Seismograph Stations, which monitors and operates the Yellowstone seismic network, located 62 earthquakes. Deformation trends observed since 2015 continue. There was one water eruptions of Steamboat Geyser on May 30. Yellowstone Volcano remains at normal, background levels of activity.
