Geyser Report, Monday, July 14, 2014
Lovely cool weather this AM, but leading to thunderstorms midday.
Enough light cloud to make a very colorful sunrise. The loop road
signs for Firehole Lake Dr have been uncovered, and the prediction
board for Great Fountain has been updated. My day started out there.
When I got to the lower store after Great Fountain, not a gazer could
be found. I wandered out to Grand, again, no one there. It was
Beehive: had not erupted (and no indicator) as of my departure at
noon. It's last eruption was yesterday at 1756 GT.
Grand: 1057 T1? (the lightning and rain drove most of us off prior
to the end of the eruption--I watched the end from the bike path S of
Little Cub: ie @ 0806, 1123, 1156
Fountain: 0610ie (steam ended 0639) I had no problem seeing it from
Great Fountain this AM. Clepsydra quit approx 0647 til 0651 per
Great Fountain: in early overflow at 0600, 0714 P=0
Pink Cone: 0605ie
White Dome: 0611, 0643, 0706, 0738
Tilt's Baby was empty at 1103 as I left Grand
Penta: steam phase 1110ns FRS
Flood: ie @ 1207
There have been lots of elk along the W entrance road the past week.
It seems more like September without the big bulls. I must have seen
40 or more this AM, fat and sleek and scattered all the way from 6
mile bridge to Madison Campground. Most have melted into the trees by
the time I come home. The calves look strong (still reckless
teenagers, and I give them lots of room). They seem to outgrow the
spindly-legged stage quickly.
