Witnesses to nature: 2 men keeping eyes on Yellowstone’s Steamboat Geyser

As we told you earlier this week, Steamboat Geyser in Yellowstone National Park has now tied last year's record for the most recorded eruptions in a year.

Steamboat is the world's tallest active geyser and though it is setting records, it still has only gone off 32 times a year, making it something most people don't get to see.

But some people DO get to see it, and see it a lot. MTN's John Sherer spoke with two of them this week.

Bill Beverly has witnessed more than 30 Steamboat eruptions and Mark Wolf, a Yellowstone National Park Interpretive Ranger has also seen multiple full eruptions of Steamboat Geyser share their experiences in the park.
