About this spot
Cistern Spring (27 x 41 feet/ 8.2 x 12.5 m) is linked underground to Steamboat Geyser, the largest geyser in the world. When Steamboat erupts Cistern Springs can take between 1-3 days to replenish. The sinter terrace at Cistern Springs grows an average of 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) a year in contrast to Old Faithful which grows at that rate per century!
