2019—Spasm Geyser

Spasm Geyser in Yellowstone National Park is described as a small geyser and according to the National Park Service, whether Spasm is or is not erupting is related to nearby and larger Fountain Geyser. This small geyser is quiet after Fountain Geyser erupts, then resumes splashing to 3 feet.  It was putting on quite a spectacular show while we were there because Fountain Geyser was not erupting.  The splashes looked much higher than the advertised 3 feet and of course the plumes of steam create a sense of drama and billow far up into the  sky.
