{old faithful}

We hung out in Napa a couple of weekends ago and got to check out Old Faithful.  Apparently, there are 3 “Old Faithfuls” in the world… We visited the one in Calistoga in the northern part of the Napa Valley.

Some interesting “old faithful” facts:

-to be an “old faithful” geyser it must perform at regular intervals. This one shoots every 40 mins.

-the water from the geyser comes from an underground river that flows over hot magma

-the geyser acts as an earthquake warning
