The Famous Beehive Geyser

Yellowstone's famous Beehive Geyser is blowing!

Beehive Geyser is located in the Upper Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park. The 4-foot tall cone looks like a beehive.

The eruptions of Beehive Geyser last around 5 minutes and are about 200 feet high. The fountain of water stays at its full height for the duration of the eruption, dropping just slightly near the end.

Roaring steam at the end of the eruption can be heard a quarter-mile away. The time between eruptions ranges from 16-18 hours to one day during the summer. Winter eruptions are very erratic. Enjoy this video of Beehive erupting this winter, just a few days ago in fact. =]:)
