Note:Yesterday, Fan and Mortar were having short, organized cycles (and at least one event cycle with significant Main Vent splashing, which is more promising than what I usually see this time of year). Today I observed Fan and Mortar from 0930-1945. Though I left for a couple periods, I believe I only missed two cycles. Cycles today were longer and less organized than what I saw yesterday. I only saw one "event" all day: it started at 1238 and it consisted of Main Vent splashing prior to a cycle start followed by one small MV splash after River came on. Otherwise the cycle was unremarkable (no pauses, little activity from Mortar, mediocre water levels). After that, the cycles were all long (River on for 1 hour or more) and boring except for the last. The last cycle was a regular cycle, though Main Vent steamed heavily prior to River starting and Bottom Vent and Lower Mortar had higher water levels than prior cycles. River and Gold came on almost simultaneously at 1907 and had much better water levels than what I'd seen previous. High and Gold had periods of jetting up to 4-6 feet that lasted for up to a minute. Water levels waned prior to Angle on at 1923, but the sudden increase in energy was still a positive. It will be interesting to see if Fan and Mortar continues its usual spring slumber or if it's working back toward having eruptions.
