04:16:21 <ynpvisitorCC> Looks like a boring morning for my shift on the cam....everything went already
04:18:10 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion [i]might[/i] be in play
04:18:15 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
04:18:30 <ynpvisitorCC> true
04:19:41 <Micah-Work> Hoping Giant holds off till this afternoon. Shift from 7-3. Have a good day cam watchers.
04:19:52 <ynpvisitor11> Good photos Micah. Thanks.
04:21:02 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like Mastiff was the problem during the 1259 GHP yesterday
04:21:32 <Micah-Work> It's *Been* the problem.
04:21:50 <Micah-Work> On the longer Intervals, Giant's just "fine, I'll do it myself"
04:35:55 <ynpvisitor39> in order to get a Castle prediction Graham needs to change his Castle 2050 ie
04:48:18 <ynpvisitor64> I think Graham is at SB, otherwise there would be in basin posts
04:48:28 <ynpvisitor64> SteveO too
04:49:59 <ynpvisitor64> Why wouldn’t the Castle prediction come from the major?
04:50:19 <ynpvisitor999®> because of intervals
04:51:15 <ynpvisitor39> Daisy
04:53:16 <ynpvisitor999®> the predicted interval after a minor-major pair is 14h45m ± 45m according to NPS (not sure what interval GT uses). As the eruption before the last one was undetermined minor/major, GT doesn't predict it because it's unknown whether it was a minor/major
04:53:30 <ynpvisitor39> I could flag the entry but I do not like to do that
04:54:36 <ynpvisitor39> The camera was not onthe Castle area at the time
04:55:07 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully someone from NPS will upload an E time for Castle at that time soon then
04:57:51 <ynpvisitor39> the camera did not go wide until 2333
05:00:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum?
05:00:37 <ynpvisitor39> yep
05:45:17 <ynpvisitor35> Giant or Steamboat - choices today
06:45:02 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
06:57:19 <ynpvisitor35> is the 1842 OF from yesterday supposed to be a wc?
06:57:43 <ynpvisitor35> or a ? or A? Can you find that one on the replay and overwrite it?
06:58:02 <ynpvisitor999®> from the description it sounds like it should be an A
07:02:09 <ynpvisitor999®> overwritten
07:19:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
07:36:23 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
07:36:34 <ynpvisitor999®> (I'm sort-of-ish away, by the way)
07:55:37 <ynpvisitor39> Grand
09:17:09 <ynpvisitor90> OF
09:28:36 <ynpvisitor90> Looks like Aurum through the OF steam
09:28:55 <ynpvisitor39> yes
09:29:00 <ynpvisitor90> There it is
09:29:09 <ynpvisitor47> Good catch
09:29:47 <ynpvisitor90> Just happened to look at the right time
09:30:11 <ynpvisitor47> Lucky is almost always better than good :)
09:30:28 <ynpvisitor90> No kidding
09:46:38 <ynpvisitor39> Daisy
09:46:58 <ynpvisitor39> Group photo, say cheese
10:29:35 <ynpvisitor8> Thank you to the person who fixed the chat history feature for my older browser version. Much appreciated.
10:57:29 <ynpvisitor47> 1254 wc ie
11:00:50 <ynpvisitor39> Seismo says: no Steamboat yet
11:03:12 <ynpvisitor39> Slow afternoon, all we have to look forward to is Daisy Castle Old Faithful and hopefully a Lion
11:04:09 <ynpvisitor47> Wasn't our totally official and reliable prediction for sometime tomorrow? Wasn't the predictor thinking about a day trip :)
11:05:16 <ynpvisitor39> Yes (Dave) was/is :)
11:13:47 <ynpvisitor39> I've got my snow plow mounted on my truck, I've got my snow blower ready to go, lawn mowers are put away, I'm ready hopefully
11:29:18 <ynpvisitor73> Don't forget BH in 3.
11:37:38 <ynpvisitor47> Beehive before dark would be nice
11:58:50 <ynpvisitor90> Lion
12:15:21 <ynpvisitor39> DAisy
12:23:49 <ynpvisitor39> OF
12:31:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle ie
12:44:05 <ynpvisitor47> I'm bringing my fishing pole and a can of worms next trip. NO ONE obeys the rules anymore. He's not a dog he's my therapy animal. Give me a break!
12:50:38 <ynpvisitor39> I'm allergic to dogs and cats, cannot fly because of all those that bring dogs, when i had to stay in a nursing home they brought in therapy animals daily :(
12:51:21 <ynpvisitor999®> I guess I'm lucky with that I'm only allergic to cats and pollen then
12:59:11 <ynpvisitor47> ~~~
13:00:12 <Teri> good afternoon all; the gang out at SB? looks like it could go anytime from the last notes; back in Tacoma now; I'd be at SB all day if I could (?)
13:01:43 <Teri> (!)*
13:07:49 <ynpvisitor47> Speaking of benches?? It will be interesting to see how they reroute the boardwalk on Geyser Hill. I hope they are able to at least reopen the back door to Aurum even if Pump-Doublet has to stay closed.
13:18:38 <ynpvisitor79> lion
13:21:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
13:21:42 <ynpvisitor999®> .
13:21:42 <ynpvisitor999®> .
13:21:43 <ynpvisitor999®> .
13:27:46 <Micah> Basin is very quiet, I'm assuming everyone's up at Steamboat, which makes me want to check the platform....
13:28:10 <ynpvisitor999®> if you see an opporunity, go for it :)
13:28:47 <Micah> But also I have an opportunity to ride on one of the old Yellow buses at 4 and I've never ridden one....
13:28:55 <Micah> It is only an hour and a half tour....
13:30:43 <ynpvisitor39> enjoy the tour
13:31:10 <ynpvisitor999®> we'll keep an eye on Giant, so I'd say enjoy your tour :)
13:32:19 <ynpvisitor39> Aurum 1 full minute 15:21:25 to 15:22:25
13:33:02 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks Joe(?)
13:33:17 <ynpvisitor39> yw
13:35:59 <ynpvisitor999®> nice short intervals for Aurum
13:36:34 <Micah> Wonder if things ramped back up on the Hill....
13:40:34 <ynpvisitor59> Gillian's Island was supposed to be a three hour tour Micah and they never did get back.
13:41:10 <Micah> Yeah.....I don't like leaving Giant unattended, I'm headed out to the basin shortly. I've seen midway and FLD a lot of times.
13:42:03 <ynpvisitor9> I think Tara is watching Giant
13:42:38 <ynpvisitor9> Just waiting for another hot period
13:42:39 <Micah> I just sent her a text and didn't get a reply. And there haven't been any bathtubs reports.
13:42:51 <ynpvisitor9> Hmmmm
13:43:01 <Micah> So either Tara's out there and nothing's happened in 4 hours, in which case oh crap. Or no one's watching it.
13:43:10 <Micah> which also could be an oh crap
13:43:47 <ynpvisitor9> I’m betting she’s not far afield
13:44:03 <Micah> She could be at Steamboat.
13:44:10 <ynpvisitor9> The Altstidls are there
13:44:41 <ynpvisitor9> Pretty sure she picked Giant...maybe that changed
13:45:17 <Micah> Just called her to 5. We'll see what happens.
13:45:25 <Micah> I'm gearing up though.
13:45:59 <Kevin L™> Sounds good Skipper...
13:46:18 <Micah> *crickets over the radio*
13:50:46 <ynpvisitor9> The Altstidls will be happy to have you there
14:08:21 <ynpvisitor22> Too bad OF is being late today
14:08:40 <ynpvisitor22> A giant mouse...
14:08:53 <ynpvisitor22> or is it a dinosaur?
14:09:04 <ynpvisitor22> I think it's supposed to be a TREX
14:09:10 <ynpvisitor365> T-Rex
14:09:32 <ynpvisitor22> Hilarious
14:09:48 <ynpvisitor22> oops, out of character now
14:10:35 <ynpvisitor22> something happening behind the Grand trees
14:11:27 <ynpvisitor22> yeah, OF
14:12:29 <ynpvisitor2b> Jurassic Park indeed.
14:12:41 <ynpvisitor22> do we have a cam op?
14:12:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
14:15:52 <ynpvisitor22> so that's a no on the cam op?
14:16:34 <ynpvisitor2b> Guess so.
14:24:44 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
14:26:14 <Time for BH> What, Kevin was at OF today?
14:33:45 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q | 10m54s
14:35:50 <ynpvisitor22> Time for BH is could be another long one.
14:36:32 <ynpvisitor22> sure wish SB would go for Graham today.
14:39:43 <Time for BH> I bought that Second Hand Crystal Ball the other night after 2 successful Grand calls. It shows bees.
14:40:12 <ynpvisitor999®> sure thing...
14:41:28 <Time for BH> I can say that an eruption of BH is a sure thing.
14:41:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
14:58:35 <ynpvisitor22> Giant soon??
15:00:38 <ynpvisitor2b> Before or after Beehive?
15:02:38 <ynpvisitor999®> GHG-17?
15:04:46 <ynpvisitor22> Anytime is good for Giant. We can't really see it from the cam anyway.
15:05:18 <ynpvisitor999®> we can see the early jets above the treeline, so I guess it's something
15:23:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy

15:24:40 <Time for BH> Crystal Ball for sale. If you can afford it
15:25:11 <ynpvisitor999®> no thanks
15:26:27 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a very, very short interval for a long
15:28:20 <Time for BH> 22 gave up too soon
15:29:12 <Time for BH> An texters?
15:30:11 <Time for BH> Odd OF
15:30:16 <ynpvisitor116> Dinosaur sighting in UGB
15:30:33 <Time for BH> KEvin still there?
15:31:19 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a good Indy
15:32:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
15:32:46 <LindaG> Nice
15:33:09 <Time for BH> No hiding lion with new cam!
15:34:30 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a very powerful Lion - it still has loads of water judging by the amount of water it's putting out
15:35:00 <Time for BH> Lion number ??
15:35:25 <ynpvisitor999®> usually after ~1m30s, and almost always after the 2m mark, it's mostly steam with water jetting
15:36:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion #4 by the way
15:36:15 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
15:36:20 <ynpvisitor999®> run!
15:36:50 <ynpvisitor999®> and a shower
15:38:13 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
15:41:54 <ynpvisitor116> Time for BH, haha...see non geyser event on gt
15:42:03 <Time for BH> That was much better then I expected.
15:42:50 <Time for BH> Off to other things. Enjoy a long lion serries.
15:43:02 <ynpvisitor999®> bye
15:43:07 <ynpvisitor2b> See you.
15:50:07 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off as well. Have fun watching SC and Lion (maybe the treeline too)
17:09:19 <ynpvisitor2b> Daisy
19:47:23 <Betty> Still no Giant?
19:47:59 <Kevin L™> I haven't heard it yet.
19:48:10 <Kevin L™> How was Ely?
19:48:23 <Betty> Hi Kevin, cute little boy
19:49:37 <Betty> We had a nice room, went to Great Basin Ntl park and did a short hike around the alpine lakes.
19:50:00 <Betty> Unfortunately the cave tours were booked out
19:50:08 <Kevin L™> :P
19:50:18 <Kevin L™> That is a bummer.
19:50:28 <Kevin L™> Surprises me this time of year.
19:50:37 <Betty> Only 1 place was left
19:50:39 <Kevin L™> Where are you now?
19:50:50 <Betty> Springdale
19:51:59 <Kevin L™> Did you get a chance to look at Cathedral Gorge?
19:55:29 <Betty> Nope
19:56:03 <Kevin L™> Bummer. You can see it with a 5m stop on the top side.
19:56:34 <Kevin L™> Did you go through Panaca going to Utah?
19:57:20 <Betty> No, we went through Milford
19:58:13 <Kevin L™> So you went US 50 and not US 93?
20:05:02 <Betty> No, 21
20:05:43 <Kevin L™> Milford has an "air" about it.
20:05:58 <Betty> Just a small road
20:06:18 <Kevin L™> Whole lot of nothing out there.
20:06:29 <Kevin L™> Have you ever had pine nuts?
20:06:40 <Betty> Got it
20:06:54 <Betty> No, I don’t think so
20:08:01 <Kevin L™> They may have them around now. One of the favorites of Nevada and Utah. Little brown nut that comes in a pine cone. Some of the local places may have them now.
21:13:54 <Betty> Grand
21:18:00 <Betty> Wonder if I only see lit trees
21:24:57 <ynpvisitor114> It’s all black and white to me.
21:27:25 <ynpvisitor114> What trails are you going to do in Zion tomorrow?
21:30:09 <Betty> Don‘t know. Some are closed to storm damage, so we will ask at visitor center
21:34:10 <ynpvisitor114> I did read that at least one was reopened. There is more rain on the way with the remnants of hurricane Rosa
21:36:40 <ynpvisitor114> There is a fun one just on the other side of the tunnel where you can see the canyon where the switch backs are,
