  • We saw this while taking the drive along Firehole Lake Drive. We did not see it erupt however. Next time we will check the eruption schedule and then plan accordingly.

  • Barely missed it going off. Check with park rangers for an estimate of when it erupts that day.
  • One of the must see Geysers in Yellowstone. This one erupting infrequently, about once every 2 days, so consider yourself lucky if you get to see it erupting. It has about 5 small benches with space for a couple groups to sit and watch. The Park Rangers post when they expect the geyser to erupt. There is space for about 10 cars to park too. It's on a 1 way track so make sure you don't drive past it as you'll have to drive the loop again to make a stop.
