Geyser erupts in Yellowstone for first time in 6 1/2 years

YELLOWSTONE — Yellowstone National Park Service (YNPS) said on social media that one of their geysers is back in action after a long period of dormancy.

“On Tuesday, August 25, 2020, Giantess Geyser roared back to life after a period of more than 6-1/2 years without erupting,” YNPS said on Facebook.

The geyser came back to life shortly after another fairly popular geothermal in Yellowstone went dormant, Canary Spring.

Geysers, hot springs, mud pots, and fumaroles (steam vents) are constantly changing in the world’s first national park. Factors that lead to these changes include earthquakes and water levels.
