An interesting broadcast was posted at WBUR on "What makes Yellowstone National Park's geysers erupt?" of the Here & Now program.
The main thing to remember, despite the park's beauty, it is a super volcano.
The post states:
Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer travel season, and visitors will flock to Yellowstone National Park to see the geysers.
The park has more geysers than any other place on Earth. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson tours the geyser basin with Bob Smith, chief seismologist at the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, and park ranger Rebecca Roland.
