Lakeview, Oregon: Old Perpetual: Man-Made Geyser

Accidentally created by well-diggers in 1923, the geyser supposedly blasts every 90 seconds. Heat-seeking mini-clams live in the hot springs.

Old Perpetual: Man-Made Geyser

Place is run down -- the geyser did nothing. Looked like maybe they were trying to make some repairs, but until then a total waste of time.

The directions took us to a rundown hot spring resort and it was hard to get a photo of the geyser past the piles of junk. It is better seen from Geyser View Road on the other side of the geyser from the resort.

Off of Geyser View Lane, a bigger spread in the winter because of temps. Nice little 5 minute stop!
