13:42:24 <ynpvisitor77> I hate that I get up. Catch the indicator. Enter times and get overridden by someone in the park.

13:55:22 <ynpvisitor77> castle
15:05:12 <ynpvisitor90> good morning
15:26:23 <ynpvisitor94> The morning is getting off to a good start
15:27:50 <ynpvisitor90> yeah in wyoming is it 9:28 am and in Germany is it 15:28 pm
15:43:03 <ynpvisitor90> visitor 94 where are from?
16:08:14 <Betty> morning all
16:08:29 <Betty> nice, LC for me :-)
16:10:49 <Betty> so again no BH for me today...
16:11:35 <ynpvisitor90> hello Betty
16:11:47 <Betty> Hi Andre
16:15:28 <Betty> there´s still no F&M reported from the basin. Any idea why? Is Firehole water level too high? though there are event cycles reported.I bet the guys outsideare checking it every day.
16:17:29 <ynpvisitor90> no Idea
16:18:32 <Betty> I need to bake a cake. be back soon
16:18:40 <ynpvisitor90> give it more information about this I don`t know
16:18:40 <ynpvisitor77> This is common at this time of year. F&M are frequently quiet in the Spring.
16:19:11 <Betty> thanks
16:25:57 <Kevin L> Andre, here is some information on Fan Geyser: http://www.geyserstudy.org/geyser.aspx?pGeyserNo=FAN
16:27:48 <Kevin L> Fan and Mortor (F&M) do not erupt much but make one of the best shows in the park.
16:31:29 <ynpvisitor90> very high smoke
16:31:58 <Mario> Daisy
16:33:27 <ynpvisitor90> if you go along with the geysers you can smell the gases?
16:33:53 <ynpvisitor77> yes
16:34:14 <ynpvisitor77> Most people notice a sulphur smell
16:34:21 <ynpvisitor90> but is not dangerous
16:34:25 <Kevin L> They smell like rotten eggs
16:36:07 <ynpvisitor77> not dangerous in teh geyser basins. There are a few isolated small valleys in Yellowstone where carbon dioxide pools -- Small birds have been reported to die there at times.
16:36:54 <Kevin L> If you can get this book it will help you. It was written by a man who was a ranger at Yellowstone: http://www.amazon.com/Geysers-What-They-Are-Work/dp/0878425098/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1432391724&sr=8-2&keywords=geysers+bryan
16:38:21 <ynpvisitor90> Animals are times I think generally sensitive
16:38:56 <ynpvisitor77> Birds can be very sensitive
16:41:19 <ynpvisitor90> Bisons too?
16:42:04 <Jenna> can be yes
16:42:21 <Kevin L> Bison are more sensitive to grizzly bears.
16:42:43 <ynpvisitor90> hmmm ok
16:48:02 <Kevin L> You will see bison walking through the geyser areas a lot. It is surprising that you don't see more of them fall in the pools.
16:54:23 <Kevin L> :p we missed Aurum at 0824.
16:59:25 <Betty> hi Kevin, Jenna and Mario. You are surprised about missing Aurum, Kevin?
16:59:34 <Kevin L> Time to watch grown men crash expensive cars. bbl
16:59:48 <Betty> see ya, Kevin
16:59:54 <Kevin L> Hi & bye Betty. Not really on Aurum.
16:59:58 <Jenna> hi Betty
17:01:10 <Betty> hey, Jenna. Did you watch the eagle´s cam lately? they are grown real big :-)
17:01:52 <Jenna> I haven't watched but I liked the page on FB so I see pictures/posts
17:01:59 <Jenna> I cannot believe how quickly they change
17:03:30 <Betty> yes, t´s amazing. I think they have flees again this year. I bet they got them from the rabbits Mom and Dad are feeding
17:04:05 <Jenna> oh no that sucks
17:04:20 <Betty> yup
17:04:51 <Jenna> no way to use frontline on them lol
17:05:08 <Betty> hehe
17:05:44 <Jenna> I wonder how they get rid of them?
17:06:29 <Betty> mom and Dad do not have any. So there must be a way
17:12:49 <Betty> glad it did not hit the cam
17:18:49 <Mario> Hi Betty, sorry i was away for a bit
17:19:09 <Betty> :-)
17:20:16 <Betty> nice spikes on Sawmill
17:26:18 <Betty> LC ie
17:36:46 <Andre from Germ> so I`m short away until soon
17:37:24 <Betty> see you later
18:04:30 <Betty> LC ie
18:49:12 <ynpvisitor77> ooo -- steam --- so exciting
18:50:04 <Betty> it slimed the cam
18:50:49 <ynpvisitor77> for some reason, my mind shifted to a giant marsmellow man
18:51:03 <ynpvisitor77> My favorite seen from Ghostbusters
18:51:08 <Betty> hehe
18:51:37 <Betty> si it is marshmellow-slime?
18:52:05 <ynpvisitor77> ;)
18:52:16 <Betty> so*
18:53:04 <ynpvisitor77> si works too
18:53:23 <Betty> yes, that´s true ;-)
18:54:16 <ynpvisitor77> So what should we watch for next? Maybe Daisy and Grand?
18:55:07 <Betty> sounds goo, but mybe we get a Lion surprise
18:56:01 <Betty> I cannot type today, I use my Dave-from-B-keyboard :-p
18:57:34 <ynpvisitor77> Daisy to Lion, it is.
19:12:48 <Betty> Daisy
19:15:17 <ynpvisitor50> when in this view is it possible to tell a difference between sawmill and tardy?
19:16:07 <Betty> yes
19:16:45 <ynpvisitor50> can it be done by location of water or is it by height/width or someothing else?
19:16:47 <Betty> sawmill is a bit right of the tree and a bit above
19:17:11 <Betty> Tardy is excactly in the middle of the tree trunk
19:17:18 <Betty> LC ie
19:17:31 <ynpvisitor50> nice placement for tardy ;)
19:17:48 <Betty> so it is location, and sawmill has higher spikes
19:18:00 <Betty> Riverside ie
19:18:45 <Betty> in the middle of the tree trunk, just where the branches begin is tardy
19:22:05 <ynpvisitor77> I bet many gazers are in teh Lower Geyser Basin today tryign to catch Fountain and Great Fountain.
19:23:21 <ynpvisitor50> were those trails closed?
19:24:28 <ynpvisitor77> The road to Great Fountain uaully open Memorial Day Weekend (today). The trail fo Fountain was closed earlier but I think it is open now.
19:24:32 <ynpvisitor76> go Labial :)
19:25:19 <ynpvisitor87> Pink Cone! I want a Pink Cone!
19:25:39 <Betty> and White Dome!
19:26:21 <ynpvisitor50> but as far as names go on firehole, give me young hopeful, i think that is a well named geyser
19:26:30 <ynpvisitor77> I'd say Narscissus but I can never spell it.
19:26:48 <Betty> Narcissus
19:27:13 <ynpvisitor77> I told ya
19:27:16 <ynpvisitor76> 203 days since the last Pink Cone, but LS will get it!
19:27:20 <Betty> hehe
19:29:55 <Betty> need to leave for a while. bbl
19:52:48 <ynpvisitor50> Betty would be proud
19:56:42 <ynpvisitor76> yay Mara made it
20:34:47 <ynpvisitor77> Lion
21:01:14 <ynpvisitor77> aurum

21:49:34 <ynpvisitor77> Typical for Memorial Day Weekend. Don't know how may times I've sat through ugly weather like that on this weekend. I still wish I was there instead of here.
