About Today’s Photo:
Our family spent Thanksgiving weekend in Saratoga Springs. We did a little walking tour of Saratoga Springs State Park (which I’d never visited before.) Amongst the several mineral springs in the park, there are a couple of actual geysers—who knew! This is the “Island Spouter” geyser, and it’s quite an active one sending water up a good 10′-12′ consistently.
