but violent eruptions characterize Giantess Geyser. This fountain-type
geyser erupts in several bursts 100 - 200 ft (30 - 60m) high. Eruptions
generally occur 2 - 6 times a year. The surrounding area may shake
from underground steam explosions just before the initial water and/or
steam eruptions. Eruptions may occur twice hourly and continue for
4 - 48 hours.
