Like its more famous Yellowstone counterpart, this Napa Valley geyser erupts at regular intervals - every forty minutes, in the case of the Calistoga gusher.

This was like a ghost town. We were the only people there. It even took us a minute to find someone working the front desk. When we paid and entered, you walk straight ahead to the geyser. There are chairs set up around it and...More
