At least once every hour, and usually more often, the geyser in Calistoga, California erupts and shoots a tower of steaming water about 75 feet into the air.
The source of the geyser is a river, deep underground. When to flows over hot molten magma, the water boils and turns to steam. IT’s collected in underground caverns and when it builds up, it erupts in a spectacular natural water show.
I was lucky enough to get a photo as the sunshine created a spectacular rainbow.
