This photo is of the Great Fountain Geyser, located in the Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, United States. Specifically, you can find it in the Firehole Lake area of Lower Geyser Basin in Yellowstone. It erupts up to three times per day, usually every 9 to 15 hours, and the plumes can reach 75 feet (23 m) to 220 feet (67 m). The duration of each eruption can last for up to an hour or two.

Yellowstone National Park is located mostly within the U.S. state of Wyoming, although it also extends into Montana and Idaho, as well. Established by the Congress and signed into law by President Grant in 1872, it is believed to be the first national park in the world.
