One of the biggest geysers in Yellowstone National Park erupted Tuesday for the first time in more than six and a half years, and the Guardian calls it "spectacular" and "worth the wait." The Giantess geyser typically erupts between two and six times a year, with a spout that can reach 200 feet into the air. Per officials at the Wyoming park, she "roared back to life" after a dormant period that was her longest since the 1980s, Fox News reports. (Read more Yellowstone National Park stories.)
