Fountain Paint Pot Tour


Red Spouter

Red Spouter, which originated with the Hebgen Lake earthquake, exhibits the behavior of fumaroles, hot springs and mudpots. In the spring and early summer its pools splash muddy water that sometimes has a red tone. [See spring phase] Later in the summer and fall, when the water table is lower, Red Spouter becomes a hissing fumarole.
