Lower Geyser Basin : Yellowstone National Park : Day 3

Thursday, July 17, 2015

The Lower Geyser Basin is other-worldly. Filled with thermal features, there are Vast spaces of gurgling grounds. Bridges and walkways are everywhere to keep pedestrians from stepping on the hot, soft, steamy, fragile soils. Signs, kiosks and posters plummet the landscape explain what you are seeing. It was a stark cold damp early morning and the hot steam was quite visible across the scene.

Our first stop was at the The Great Fountain in the Lower Geyser Basin. Wikipedia says that The Great Fountain Geyser is a fountain-type geyser;  It is the only predictable geyser in the Lower Geyser Basin. Here is a video:

Our next stop was at White Dome Geyser. Wikipedia says that White Dome is a conspicuous cone-type geyser located only a few feet from Firehole Lake Drive,  Its 12-foot-high geyserite cone is one of the largest in the park. Its eruptions are unpredictable. Here is a video of White Dome Geyser

Our Third stop was at Steady Geyser. (video)

What a privilege and honor to see God’s handiwork within the geysers at Yellowstone National Park. A joy to behold!
