is indeed well separated from others in the Upper Geyser Basin, a quarter of a mile north and 120 feet above the nearest springs, on Geyser Hill. The closest approach is along the west section of the Observation Point Trail
, which climbs through pine forest, close to the edge of an open area - the lengthy run-off channel produced by the geyser. Activity was greatly increased by the 1915 construction of a diversion channel to funnel water to a nearby swimming facility; although long since removed, the spring continues to erupt to heights of a few feet every six to ten minutes. The geyser occupies a large vent, over 30 feet across, filled by clear blue water and surrounded by extensive, colorful depositional terraces and sinter formations.
