is part of the Daisy group, viewable from a distance from a loop trail to the north or south. The geyser is capable of sending water 200 feet in the air, amongst the highest in Yellowstone, but eruptions are very infrequent, and in general not predictable, the one exception being if the ambient pressure suddenly, falls, as a result of a rapidly approaching storm; activity is then much more likely. Eruptions last between one and ten minutes. Splendid has several closely spaced vents, usually filled by choppy blue water, and a calmer pour-over pool to one side. All are lined by sinter deposits.
