Fountain Paint Pot Tour


Spasm Geyser

Spasm Geyser is off to a roiling, boiling start while Clepsydra, in the background, is erupting full force.

Whether Spasm is or is not erupting can be a clue to Fountain's activity. This small geyser is quiet after its big neighbor erupts, then resumes splashing to 3 feet (0.9 meters).
