Eruptions from Sawmill Geyser are highly variable, some lasting only 9 minutes while others may last over 4 hours. The typical interval between eruptions is 1 - 3 hours. Overall it is erupting about 30% of the time. Sawmill received its name because water spins in its crater as it erupts looking somewhat like the rotating circular blade of a lumber mill.

Thanks Samad, Mahdi and Mahmoud for sharing your thoughts with me. What the photograph can not convey is the feel of warm, wet steam on a cold, winter day, a rumbling, hissing sound coming from the earth, the strong smell of sulpher and a sense of the ground shifting below your feet.

Nice combination of volcanic activity and snow - quite unusual!

I shall remember this one - if met in the contest sets.
