  • If you haven't seen a geyser before, you'll find this to be interesting. We enjoyed seeing it but we wouldn't take the time to stop at again.
  • Stunning! We got there at 8am and had it to ourselves. We watched for an hour and saw nine eruptions. Some are in very quick succession, twice it did a double explosion!
