By the way, I had read recently that a geyser that had been quiet for years has become active again.

It's gone through swarms like this before many times. I'm going to be there in just a few weeks!

Yep- the odds of something major happening in our lifetimes are remotely small. The geological clock ticks slowly.

And if it does and you are right on top of it, its honestly probably lucky on your part.  Being vaporized beats the mass suffering and chaos a major mega volcano eruption would bring.

Meh, this is Yellowstone doing its thing. Geysers, springs, mudpots, etc. all change and some can abruptly come to life or die. It's nothing new in such an active zone.

Curious has anyone else noticed some very noticeable cracks in the earth and concretes around?  I have noticed a lot that are 1-2 cracks.  We have had plenty of rain so no reason ground should be cracked from dry ground. Just fine it odd this year.

Maybe you are cracking up ?
