Allan Friedman
Born in Washington DC and raised in New York City Among other things I have been an elementary school teacher and a book store owner- I still own the book shop named Wonderland Books after YNP I have been a geyser gazer for over 30 years and have managed to spend some part of the each summer in the park I am fascinated by geysers, especially the relationship between geysers in close families

Will Boekel
Will started gazing in the fall of 2011. Will currently works the summers at the Old Faithful Lodge Front Desk. When in the park Will enjoys to spend most of his time watching and studying Fan & Mortar Geysers. Although, you may find him cruising around the Upper Geyser Basin when Fan & Mortar are not due to erupt. When not in the Park Will enjoys partaking in skiing, climbing, hiking, running, and watching the Old Faithful webcams when time allows. Also Will currently studies Mechanical Engineering at Montana State University (GO CATS!) in Bozeman, MT.
