We drove to the Great Fountain Geyser on Firehole Lake Drive, which had just finished erupting and was spewing some steam and water about 20 feet as it finished its cycle. We spoke with a geyser expert, as she was knitting while timing the eruption and taking notes, one of several geyser watchers we saw on our journey. She had the Washington license plate “GEYSER." We also saw White Dome and Pink Dome Geysers along Firehole Lake Drive and drove through a seeping hydrothermal area surrounding Firehole Lake that looked pretty treacherous. The one-way drive came out at the Fountain Paint Pots of the Lower Geyser Basin. Don't miss this drive.
