Today’s photo is from Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Old Faithful erupts roughly every 90 minutes and draws a huge crowd. This geyser can erupt with a fountain higher than 55m into the air. A fun fact about Old Faithful:
Old Faithful is sometimes degraded by being made a laundry. Garments placed in the crater during quiescence are ejected thoroughly washed when the eruption takes place. Gen. Sheridan’s men, in 1882, found that linen and cotton fabrics were uninjured by the action of the water, but woolen clothes were torn to shreds. — Winser, Henry J. (1883).

He presented his stuff in a great way and challenged us to step up to the ‘jump zone’ and take the leap.
Today I’ve got a post about the story at the beginning of John 8 – the woman caught in adultery and some photos from Mesa Verde, Colorado. I’ve also got a new section for you: Music.
