Wonder of Nature. Old Faithful Geyser

There is a lot of build-up to this naturally occurring hot-water shower. It probably isn't warranted... but it's still cool nonetheless! I agree with other reviewers that it is overpriced. But those who are suckers for a roadside attraction, especially one as venerable as Old Faithful, will get a kick out of it. Steam shows were happening every 5 to 10 minutes when I visited, so there's not a long wait. The goats are cute, but, then, goats are pretty much always cute. Lots of kids. Baby goats, I mean.

Geyser. Old Faithful Geyser of California

Cool but not necessarily $14 cool. Should be a $6 attraction.

In northern Napa Valley, where pricier cork popping is customary.

Baby Goats. Old Faithful Geyser of California

New ownership Jan. 2013 - prices going up. Baby goats made it worth it! We got in just before closing and were able to stay as long as we wanted, even after the gift shop closed. Had a nice little picnic while watching the geyser!

4-horned goat. Old Faithful Geyser of California

IMHO, the best sight at this attraction was Jacob, the 4-horned goat!
