YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK — 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.
