2018—Clepsydra Geyser

The Clepsydra Geyser in the Lower Geyser Basin is quite beautiful with golden yellow surrounding its aqua pool.  The colors are sometimes completely obscured by the spray and  mist from the geyser which seems to spout almost continually.  Old Faithful Geyser, which is not as faithful as it once was due to seismic activity over the years that rearranged the plumbing that causes its now semi-regular eruptions, does not have the beautiful colors that Clepsydra has.  The term “clepsydra” refers to an ancient time-measuring device that worked by flowing water.
