Note:12/11/1981 Graceful Geyser As I look back on what I’ve written, I see that I forgot to write about the death of Graceful. Sometime in early October, Fred was taking some U.S.G.S. ( I think) folks around the basin so that they could get samples of gas & water. When they got to Graceful, they found that the vent had about tripled in size, there were large caverns under where the rim of the vent was & a lot of large rocks had been thrown out of the vent. It has not been erupting since to my knowledge. While there today, it was splashing some water above the vent, which I don’t recall seeing since it has gone dorment. [sic] There were no large rocks around the vent within 3 feet. You can easily hear a lot of water splashing below. We were in the basin for ~ 4 hours & I didn’t see anything like an eruption but I’ll put up a marker next time that I’m there. Where is Tomas & Milada when we need them? They will be crushed by the news…. Maybe a sympathy card is in order? Temp. 202º
