    A Yellowstone Moment

    Fun For Fisherfolks
    New Geyser On Firehole

    -- Unless you just want to catch fish, it might be worth visiting Biscuit Basin on opening day, (less than a month to go.) A new geyser is erupting just 160 feet north of the footbridge in the basin, (downstream.) This is just one more reason to fish Yellowstone National Park.
    -- The baby geyser is less than a week old and had some trouble being born. There are several new vents in the area that were probably the false starts for the birth. The new vent is about 4 feet long and is just 12 feet from the river.
    -- This is right in the walking lane for fisherfolks. Take the time to pause and enjoy this new feature. Discharge, from this west bank geyser is flowing into the Firehole River, and that means that the footpath will have to be modified in this heavy traffic zone. There is no name for the infant yet. Naming will take place once the National Park Service decides that this little fellow is going to survive.
