Yellowstone geyser seeing activity not seen in more than a decade


Yellowstone National Park officials have reported increased activity at Geyser Hill, something not seen since 2004.

Officials reported that Ear Spring spewed 20-to-30-foot high water Saturday, a feat that hasn't been seen since 1957.

Park officials also say the eruption has been so powerful that new erupting vents and surface fractures have formed.

Geyser Hill lies across the Firehole River from Old Faithful and features dozens of hot springs, geysers and fumaroles.

Park rangers added that the geyser has been erupting at a constant height of two feet and there are no signs of volcanic activity at the park.
