Look to the right of the photo-at all the undisturbed snow on the slope leading away from the back of Morning's crater towards the Sprinkler Group.  When Morning is active it floods that area.  Even in 1991 and 1994 when it was erupitng from a 3/4 full pool it poured water to the north down these old and established runoff channels.  My guess is just Morning's Thief.  Has anyone seen anything else since to make us believe Fountain has stopped and Morning is active?

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.
