You hear a lot about this geyser when you're in Green River, Utah. Don't expect a geyser on the magnitude of Old Faithful, this one is much smaller and a cold-water geyser. Eruptions aren't predictable, but it's fun to take a look at the area,...More

an interesting place to visit. although it did not erupt while I was there, the surrounding terraces were fascinating to see. Also in the same area was an abandoned missile base from the 1970s, New Area 51.

Since the geyser cold water eruptions are infrequent and totally random, you will not likely to see one on a short stop. But, the mineral formations you will see are well worth the visit. Great photo opps!
