  Borah Peak Geyser
Feature Type: Geyser
Geyser/Spring Type:

Upper Geyser Basin
Geyser Hill

This geyser derives its (unofficial) name from its rejuvenation following the 1983 earthquake near Borah Peak, highest mountain in Idaho. TGoY, 4th edition, lists it as not having erupted since 1992 as of publication date (2008). More recently, it has been active, with intervals during 2017 apparently averaging about 10 to 20 minutes according to geysertimes.org. There are gaps in the geysertimes record of eruptions, lasting a week or even longer, but it is unclear whether these are due to actual long intervals or simply to lack of observations. Borah Peak is a comparatively minor geyser (eruption heights of a few feet) and it's quite likely that many eruptions go unnoticed.
