OK. This natural feature is just a short jaunt from the freeway, so if you've never been to Mammoth Basin in Yellowstone, this will serve as a mini-sample. The geyser shoots off daily but not at regular intervals. Apparently a drilling project many years back...More

The geyser eruptions are sparse now due to tampering over the years, so camp a night or two to see it... No shade, but the river is cool. Fascinating colors of layers of mineral deposit around the geyser.

If you don't make it to Yellowstone then this is a good stop to see all the mineral deposits. The geyser only does small eruptions now, scientists believe it's from all the rocks that people have thrown in it. The mineral deposits however are spectacular....More

The geyser didn't erupt while we were there. A nice place to sit by the Green River in the middle of nowhere. We enjoyed the drive through the desert and viewing the abandoned military buildings.

You hear a lot about this geyser when you're in Green River, Utah. Don't expect a geyser on the magnitude of Old Faithful, this one is much smaller and a cold-water geyser. Eruptions aren't predictable, but it's fun to take a look at the area,...More

This geyser isn't very consistent and we have never seen it go off. However, it is fun to see it and the surrounding landscape.

Whether this cold water geyser erupts or not, it's worth the short drive just to view the rock and colorful mineralization spreading out from the geyser, toward the Green River. While we were there, it gurgled and spouted about a foot above the top of...More

I'm about 11 years late writhing this. I was taking a gap year out and was travelling round usa. And for some reason I decided to stop off at green river for about 2/3 days before heading to Las Vegas. After getting off the train,...More

Disappointing says it all. The feature bubbled and gargled, but otherwise didn't perform. Don't be expecting Old Faithful.
