Heart Lake Geyser Basin
The geyser basin at remote Heart Lake begins a couple of miles from the lake and descends along Witch Creek to the lakeshore. The basin consists of five named groups of hydrothermal features. This was likely the area that members of the Washburn expedition visited in 1870 where N.P. Langford’s horse broke through the thin crust and was badly scalded.
