Comments:Tallest burst I measured was 157.5' (It was probably angled toward me a little so this may be a little too high. Will amend the post if I can find a decent way to adjust for it.) BEAUTIFUL warm blue sky eruption start!!! The wind had paused, Giantess had a very small boil. It began overflowing heavily on the NW side and started thumping. Mixed type eruption. First water 1512-36. Tall bursts started at 1545. 1554 steam. Water started to come back at 1656. More bursting 1729 until near Vault start at 1917. More spike sessions: 1929-41 [119' measurement] 2014 2048 Missed two 2211-about 0009 was very active with occasional pauses 1-2 minutes long and three sets of tall bursts. [measurement of 134' during the 2233-42 series] 9-11-20: 0101-08 0147-55 [119' measurement] 0337 per WC 0439 per Graham 0528ie per Graham 0625 per Graham 0722-34 0808-14 0912-21 1009-19 [147' measurement] 1107-14 1219-27 1313-21 1354-1401 1439-47 [101' measurement, may have had higher bursts before the one I measured] 1534-41 [105' measurement] 1650-57 1829-36 (this was the last definite burst I observed. Occasional splashes seen from hams and elsewhere but no definite burst noted before I left after 2300.)

I got so lucky. I'd bicycled to run an errand and was heading back to our Old Faithful rustic cabin. I noticed that Giantess was steaming, so I bicycled in that direction. I went a bit past the turn off to Solitary, stashed my bike in the woods and then ran to Giantess. The eruption was quite impressive, spashing, steam and an occasional spouting to 80-100'. I did not get any of the impressive underground thumping as I recall from the steamy phase of an eruption I saw in July 2001.
