About this spot
Castle Geyser is one of my favorite features in Yellowstone. The geyser has distributed many different behaviors over the years but currently it erupts every 10-12 hours from its approximately 12 feet high geyserite cone, with water blasting 90 feet (27m) that lasts about 20 minutes. After the water eruption, Castle steams noisily for 30-40 minutes. Photographically Castle takes on many personalities at different times of the day and depending on levels of activity. From a sleeping giant to a powerful force you can photograph Castle many times and always have a different experience.
