Great Fountain Geyser

Great Fountain Geyser

Eruptions of Great Fountain Geyser are fairly regular, and it is right alongside the road, so many photographs and videos have been taken. But luck was not with me, no eruption.

Pink Cone Geyser eruption

Pink Cone Geyser eruption

Pink Cone Geyser erupts once or twice a day, but its eruptions last for up to two hours. It was erupting when we first drove by and we watched it for half an hour, long enough to take two panoramas, several videos, and a lot of photos.
