andrews not geyser

while in old fort over the weekend, we followed signs to 'andrew's geyser.'

wikipedia sayeth:

A geyser is a spring characterized by intermittent discharge of water ejected turbulently and accompanied by a vapor phase (steam). Generally all geyser field sites are located near active volcanic areas, and the geyser effect is due to the proximity of magma.

i was interested to see what kind of phenomenal natural water spout could possibly be found around here.

i saw photos of the 'geyser' after prolonged sub-freezing temperatures, and it looks more geyser-like since there's an ice build-up around the base. but it's still a fountain with a hose. they should re=name it andrew's fountain.

hahahahaa lol. I had the same reaction. The *only* saving grace was that I saw it in it's frozen stage that you mentioned.

The drive was nice.
