Whirligig Geysers

Little Whirligig Geyser shoots water and steam into the air at an angle.
 

Little Whirligig got its name because of its close proximity to Whirligig Geyser. Whirligig was so named because its water swirls in its crater during eruptions. The orange-yellow iron oxide deposits around Little Whirligig make it one of the most colorful features in Porcelain Basin. It has been dormant for several years.
