Giant Geyser

Giant Geyser has an enormous creamy white cone.
Giant Geyser's Steaming Cone

Giant Geyser was dormant for many years after the energy shift in 1955. Since then, it has slowly become active again. During 1997, its eruptions occurred every 3 - 10 days. This spectacular geyser's eruptions last about an hour and can reach heights of 180 - 250 feet (55 - 76m). During eruptions small geysers nearby may also erupt.
