Geyser Report, Thursday, July 17, 2014

Somehow I lost internet access for 3 days, but am up and running
again.  Temps 33-35F on my way into the park this AM.  The skies were
VERY milky due to fires NW of us (NW WA-Vancouver area).  No smoke
odor however.  The sun was gorgeous orange as it cleared the
mountains, but the lovely sunrise colors I had hoped for did not
occur.  The heavy haze may have held down the heat--  73F  at 1230PM.

The Bozeman Chronicle had an article yesterday or the day before
saying the Firehole Lake Dr was again open--not news.  "Park officials
said Monday road crews removed damaged sections of pavement and used a
mix of sand and lime to soak up the oil."   Certainly not what it
appeared had been done.

Fan and Mortar erupted at 1143 on Tues 7-15.  All were grateful for a
daylight eruption.

I saw a porcupine near the start of Firehole Lake Dr this AM!  He
ambled off into the trees.
Great Fountain had a 28hr window posted this AM.  I bet it went, too.
Pool was empty as I passed.  The gray road topping was still wet in
front of Pink Cone shortly after 0600.

Giantess has caught a lot of attention.  It was doing VERY nice
boiling yesterday.  I left Artemisia, hoping...    but no eruption
