While in Yellow Stone National Park, we met a few geyser chasers. We followed them around the park to chase the geyser eruptions. This is one which we waited for the longest. In the end, we waited for 3 hours unsure of when it is going to erupt. As it was getting darker, it was getting colder.

The Great Fountain Geyser is a fountain-type geyser located in the Firehole Lake area of Lower Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.

Eruptions begin about one hour after the crater fills and the first overflow spills onto the terraces. Great Fountain’s maximum height ranges from about 75 feet to over 220 feet. While this pattern of behavior is observed most of the time, there are occasional episodes of so-called “wild-phase” activity during which the eruptions are of greatly extended duration and intervals between eruptions may be as long as three days.

It was one of the first discovered in the park, in the late 19th century
