My wife and I saw a video about the fires of 1988. More exactly the regeneration of lands burnt in 1988. A whole new slew of animals, and flowers, plants, and trees, are growing.

This well planned visitor center provides educational exhibits and information about the geysers in the park. Well worth a visit.

Directly opposite Old Faithful itself this centre has information on the main geyser eruption predictions, an interesting education centre and shop. If you are visiting this area you should go here to get the information vital to making this trip more interesting
