The geyser’s formation is a result of a well drilling accident back in the 1960’s. The well may have somewhat been left improperly capped, which then made dissolved minerals to rise and contribute to the growing formation of what people now see. But we need to thank the thermophilic algae, which contribute to the beauty of the mound.
