... a few minutes after & ran for 5 minutes. Quiet impressive to watch the 145 Foot of boiling water & steam shoot into the air!

Dad aimed for a hole about 30 feet up, whereas Alex and I were having enough trouble reaching the base of the mountain. There was not a noise to be heard other than our rocks hitting the mountain, the trickling of the creek we were standing in, and chirping of birds around us. After a peaceful and playful few minutes we decided to call it a day and leave Yellowstone and head to Jackson on that positive ...
