has two vents (North and South) ten feet apart, both surrounded by particularly intricate deposits of geyserite, and wavy run-off channels colored orange, yellow and dark brown. Although linked underground, the two vents are somewhat independent; they may erupt at the same time, one after the other, or at unconnected intervals. The larger (north) geyser, closest to the path, erupts about every ten minutes for a minutes or less, while the smaller south vent is generally less active though its performances last longer. Following an eruption the pool in the north geyser is drained; it then refills over the next few minutes, overflowing just before the next spouting.
East of Anemone Geyser, the boardwalk trail passes a few more small pools including Silver Spring and Bronze Spring then arrives back at the junction beside Sulphide Spring
. From here, the next major new spring (Liberty Pool
) is half a mile away, walking back along either section of the loop, then further west on the continuation path, close to the Firehole River.
