[Geysers] North Goggles not seen the last 3 hours of today 2/13/12

   I may have confused that day with another day as far as Frog Geyser and
Marmot Cave--There's nothing in my notes about them.

   Anyway, "Frog Pool" is the first name I heard for the large pool with a
railing between Liberty Pool and Lion (I've also heard "Rubber Pool").
 "Frog Geyser" is the feature across the boardwalk from it, a smaller pool
with an oblong vent.  The eruptions I saw consisted of heavy boiling and
minor splashing over the vent, with very murky water.

   What I can confirm we saw on July 22, 1994 was lots of North Goggle
minors, lots of eruptions of "Kitten" (across the boardwalk from the Lion
Group), and an unusual number of big, frequent boils on Giantess, which was
one of the reasons we weren't always right there at North Goggle during the
long series.
