Yellowstone and how “Old Faithful” was named.

A lost Exit78 post, recovered from Internet Archive WayBackMachine; March 2011

I had always assumed the Old Faithful got it’s name because it was faithful in it’s eruptions over a long period of time. Not so. If you’re interested, I’ve published a small narrative by one of the men involved in naming the geyser. It’s over at my Haw Creek Out ‘n About blog.
