[Geysers] Riverside Intermittent Springs.

I don't know of a name for this spring (at least, I can't remember one) but
it is indeed intermittent and the microbial mat builds up from time to time
causing the area under the benches to become muddy.  When I was volunteering
I would clear out the channel near the drain tile under the paved path once
or twice a year.

Hello all, 


So I've recently developed quite a curiosity about the group of 4 or 5
little intermittent springs by Riverside Geyser located in that "island" of
trees that the walkway loop creates. I remember a gazer telling me they had
names (or at least a couple of them do), but I can't remember, does anyone
have any information on these little guys? I might be interested in doing a
study in their behavior this summer. I've attached a picture of the spring
closest to the walk and closest to Riverside. located close to the bike
rack. When it overflows it often spills onto the walkway, it's obvious the
NPS has taken measures to reduce this, since if they hadn't it would be an
even bigger mess, but I was just wondering. Thanks!
