Hurricane Vent

Norris Geyser Basin is one of Yellowstone Park’s most active and interesting thermal areas…there’s a lot of hissing and bubbling going on. Sitting quietly on a hillside overlooking the Porcelain Basin, Hurricane Vent is overshadowed by its flashier neighbors. Yet, with a thin blanket of steam pushed around by morning breezes, there isn’t a place at Norris I’d rather be.

The basics: earth, wind, and a hot fire down below…the water temperatures at steam vents can easily exceed 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
