Giantess Geyser is in the Upper Geyser Basin and was once recording eruptions every six months or so, but it’s been quiet in recent years. As befits the name, Giantess Geyser is pretty noisy when erupting and is known for a large spout some 200 feet high. In this case, Giantess erupted for some 40 hours before simmering down.
