It’s less than a two-hour drive, from downtown San Francisco, to get to Calistoga in Napa Valley. Driving is pretty straightforward and easy. Take Highway 101 North. Pass the Golden Gate Bridge and continue north on the local mountain road. Calistoga and Napa Valley are famous for various things, such as wines, hot springs, mud baths, or good food. Among the wonders of nature visitors can enjoy in Calistoga, this geyser is at the top of the list. There are many geysers in the world. Japan has some, as a volcanic country. New Zealand is another country that one would visit for its geysers.
In the United States, visitors can find geysers in Nevada, Wyoming, or California. This Old Faithful geyser in California is one of the few geysers in the world called “old faithful.” The name, Old Faithful Geysers, was given to geysers that erupted with water at regular time intervals. Since the natural condition to form a geyser is not simple, it is not easy to find a geyser with regular water eruption even in the world. Conditions include sufficient amounts of groundwater, heat source, pressure, or path for the water to reach the earth’s surface.
This geyser shoots water into the air every thirty minutes. The eruption of steam and flaky water reaches twenty to thirty meters into the air each time it erupts. Entrance to this geyser is $ 8 for an adult. A child between the ages of six and twelve is $ 6. Children six and under are free. An adult sixty-five years of age or older costs $ 7. A visitor can get a $ 1 discount with triple-A membership or printing from their official website.
In the geyser area, tables and benches are provided. No food or drink is provided. The visitor must be prepared to eat and drink. Visitors may see occasional small eruptions, but the actual eruption is large. Don’t be too quickly disappointed with a small rash. The eldest will come.
While the visitors wait, after a grunting sound for a few minutes, it suddenly erupts with a hissing sound of water scraping the ground. Water and steam reach fifty to sixty feet in a second shooting the water upward. A one-time rash lasts longer than expected. Continue for at least three to five minutes.
It is known as a good earthquake predictor measure. When the authority observes a change in the eruption pattern of the geyser, such as a delay in the eruption or less water, an earthquake will occur in an area of five hundred miles. It is the place that one hopes to visit to touch the spectacles of nature.
