1. Beehive Geyser Marker
Inscription. this geyser, named for its 4-foot high cone, resembles an old fashioned beehive. Though its cone is modest by comparison to others in the Upper Geyser Basin, Beehive is one of the most powerful and impressive geysers in Yellowstone. The cone acts as a nozzle, directing a column of steam and water to heights of up to 200 feet.

Fast Facts:
Typically, Beehive's activity is not predictable, but when eruption cycles start, intervals between eruptions can range from 10 hours to 5 days.
An average eruption lasts approximately 5 minutes.

Geysers are hot springs that erupt periodically. In Yellowstone National Park all of the ingredients needed for geyser activity are present; heat, water, and underground rock hard enough to withstand intense pressures.
