Prepare to meet the mosquitoes, remember do not feed the wildlife. Beg for a prediction time, accurate at about 3 hour intervals, and thrill because you are seeing it first hand without a tourbus and where in sight. Really a Treat.

We enjoyed the stroll to the geyser and arrived about 15 minutes before the next eruption. We enjoyed our lunch as we watched with only about 6 other people as the geyser worked itself up to an eruption. The wind shifted and we got a...More
