I am trying to figure out the angles here, and the double spikes close
together (with the one on the right being farther from the camera),  the
angle of the left burst (morning has many non-vertical splashes) and the
fact that the area around Fountain appears quiescent... I think it might
be Morning.  That is an awful lot of water in the air at one moment and
double spikes are not at all unusual for Morning, 
Sigh - I expect to have my hopes cruelly dashed soon.  Maybe Morning's
Thief is just going bonkers.

Upon looking at it again, I do wonder if it is simply a large burst from
Thief, blown by the rather obvious gusty wind.  Hope it ain't.  It does
seem like an impressive volume.  Does anyone out there have photos of
the area from that vantage point?

The following message is from Karen Low.  I've resized the photo. Anyone
that wants the original large image, just write and I'll send it.  You
can't really see anything more in the larger image.  -- Dave

A passenger took this picture on a friend's snowcoach tour.  We are
wondering if Morning is erupting or just Morning's Thief.  With the two
spikes I'm being indecisive as to how to call it.
