Beehive Geyser

 

This geyser, named for its 4-foot high cone, resembles and old fashioned beehive.  Though its cone is modest by comparison to

others in the Upper Geyser Basin, Beehive is one of the most powerful and impressive geysers in Yellowstone.  The cone acts as

a nozzle, directing its stream and water to heights of up to 200 feet.

 

Fast Facts:

 

Typically, Beehive's activity is not predictable, but when eruption cycles start, intervals between eruptions can range from 10 hours

to five days.

 

An average eruption lasts approximately 5 minutes.

 

Geysers are hot springs the erupt periodically.  In Yellowstone National Park all the ingredients needed for geyser activity are 

present: heat, water, and underground rock hard enough to withstand intense pressures.

 

This exhibit made possible by a generous grant from the Yellowstone Association.

 

Graphics on the sign

 

In addition to the text there is a picture of Beehive Geyser and a two dimensional display of the geyser's plumbing system.
