Two Tourists Have Been Arrested For Getting Dangerously Close To Yellowstone’s Old Faithful

The powerful beauty of Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park is truly awe-inspiring, yet two tourists took their admiration many steps too far in an attempt to get as close as possible. This national park is notoriously dangerous, given the scalding hot temperature of the thermal pools, yet there is always a clear designation for keeping a safe distance. In other words, one must blatantly ignore signs and markings to come into dangerous proximity to the geysers. And unfortunately, that’s exactly why two tourists were arrested recently.
