“Interesting and very secluded when we were there.”
Review of Crystal Geyser

Crystal Geyser
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We went last fall while on a circular trip from Colorado to Waterton Lakes, Glacier NP, Craters of the Moon and finally Arches NP before we headed back home to Colorado. We were told about it by somebody at the hotel where we were staying and decided to take a look late one afternoon. We were given a map which was very helpful because without it we would never have found it. The drive is mostly on dirt roads and it feels like it is out in the middle of nowhere, which in a sense I suppose it is. There was nobody there the hour or so we were there which was OK with us. We didn't see anything spectacular while we were there but were able to get some good photos of the patterns the water makes in the minerals as well as some very interesting colors. Also, some of the rock formations in the area were pretty spectacular to a non-geologist like me. This was a nice respite and change of pace from all the driving and 'touristing" we had been doing.

What a fun stop on the rivers edge to see an accidental wonder. The geyser only erupts in a truly spectacular fashion once in a while anymore, but it was fun and interesting to watch the pressure build and the little eruption it now puts out. People in the local area have put too much junk in the pipe, including dynamite. Fun all the same to see the travertine built up and the Jacuzzi like bubbling from the Earth's crust

The place is certainly not overly busy and somewhat difficult to find. The staff at the Green River information center was quite helpful explaining the right way to the geyser.

We were alone for quite some time with not much to do.

Major downside is the fact that no one can predict when the geyser becomes active.

Go to the museum in Green River and they have a time table on the geyser so you can watch it blow. Not to far off the freeway,can get to it in a car. Even if you miss the geyser the hard mineral overflow is surrealistic. Plus the Grand Green is right there. Good place to have a picnic or do some plinkin.

20 minutes from Green River, it was worth the dirt road drive to see. There are only a few cold water geysers in the world, you shouldn't miss seeing it.
