Text of sign at Daisy Geyser:
Daisy Geyser is part of an interconnected group of geysers and hot springs. Underground cracks and fissures allow water and heat to circulate between the various features in the group. When the activity of one feature affects the behavior of another, it is called an exchange of function. Daisy Geyser is usually quite predictable, but when nearby Bonita Pool overflows excessively or when Splendid Geyser erupts, Daisy Geyser can become irregular.
An eruption of Daisy Geyser starts with boiling water splashing from one of several vents in the thick sinter ledge partially surrounding the geyser’s crater. This eruption indicator means that a full eruption is about to occur. Boiling water soon pours over the crater’s edge, and the splashing increases. Suddenly, bursts of water angle into the sky, reaching heights or 75 feet and lasting from 3 to 5 minutes.
Daisy Geyser erupts to heights of 75 feet or more.
On average, the duration of Daisy Geyser’s eruptions are 3 to 5 minutes.
