Yellowstone National Park’s Steamboat Geyser, the largest geyser in the world, rarely erupts. Yet it has done so three times this spring: March 15, April 19, and April 27.

Although the three recent eruptions are relatively small compared to major eruptions of the past, the April events discharged roughly ten times the volume of water as does Old Faithful Geyser, Yellowstone’s most famous geyser.

Yellowstone News: Grizzlies, Bison, Fees and Windows

From wildlife to windows, this early February winter season week in Yellowstone National Park witnessed a wide range of news items.

Grizzly bear advocates were heartened to learn that Montana wildlife officials are recommending that the state not hold a grizzly bear hunt this year in the wake of the previously-endangered animals losing federal protection in the three states surrounding Yellowstone — Montana, Wyoming and Idaho.
