Excelsior Geyser Crater

One more photo of the Excelsior Geyser, or rather its crater, as it is as dormant fountain-type geyser, located in the Midway Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park. This view was taken in the opposite direction compared to my earlier upload.

When the Excelsior Geyser was still active in the late 19th century, it was the largest geyser in the world. Eruptions could reach a height of up to 90 metres, but those powerful eruptions were probably also the cause of internal damage to the geyser’s system, which rendered it dormant. It returned to some activity in 1985 and between 2004 and 2006 with some minor eruptions and violent boiling respectively, but nowadays its pool ‘merely’ discharges some 16,000 litres of 93 degrees Celsius hot water per minute into the Firehole River.

I wish you all a wonderful New Year's Eve.
