Yellowstone Video captures 30 visitors walking to edge of Old Faithful for photo op

Editor's Note

This story was changed on April 29, 2011, to correct the amount that the geyser walkers were fined.

Too up close to Old Faithful

Tourists walk on Old Faithful

Three people were ticketed Wednesday in Yellowstone National Park after a group of tourists walked up to the edge of Old Faithful for a closer look and a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity -- just minutes before the famous geyser erupted.

The outrageous incident was captured by a webcam that broadcasts live footage of Old Faithful and is unlike anything park officials have seen in recent times.
