Periodic Spring

Periodic Spring is a fantastic place. It is a cold water geyser, where a fast, rushing creek, stops and starts. Every 15 to 20 minutes, in the right season, the creek flows, and then it stops. It is located in a beautiful box canyon, with vertical walls around it.

How

can that happen? I thought normal geysers worked by superheated steam, so what can drive a cold geyser?

Re: How

It is like a siphon inside of the mountain. When it fills, the water flows out of the creek. When empty it slowly refills. It all happens deep inside of a steep mountainside. Pretty amazing
