Castle Geyser Puttin
Castle Geyser, owing to its colorful bacteria mat and the visually interesting shape of its ancient cone, is one of my favorite geysers in Yellowstone National Park.
Castle Geyser is located in the Upper Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park, a short walk from Old Faithful Geyser. Major eruptions occur at intervals of nine to eleven hours apart. During the twenty minute water phase of the two phase eruption, the water plume reaches heights of sixty to ninety feet. The water phase is followed by a forty minute steam phase. Occasionally Castle Geyser has a minor eruption, lasting only a few minutes. Following a minor eruption Castle Geyser does not become predicable again until after the next major eruption.
Bubbling in front of the geyser is Tortoiseshell Spring.
This particular eruption was on a fine sunny day in September 2007.
