Note:I observed Steamboat from 0730 until 1730. I concur with the notes posted by Micah and JeffL. The wind direction and heavy steam from Steamboat made it impossible to view the vents from steerage today except for early in the morning. Visibility was also not great from the main platform, so most of my observation from noon on was from the upper platform. North and South vents continued to progress and have voluminous and sustained eruptions at times. South was hard to see, but it had a fair amount of vertical splashing when it was visible. North had some vertical, but not much. I saw what looked like "granding" two times, though neither time was very tall. I didn't see any concerted sustained vertical minors . . . though it is possible they occurred and I just couldn't see them. I checked steerage a number of times throughout the day. Runoff was significant at times and the trough at the bridge continues to dredge slowly. The runoff channel has also changed quite a bit, so measurements using middle rock may not be quite as useful as in the past (sorry Micah) to gauge the amount of water coming down. I'm surprised at how quickly the activity is progressing considering how dismal it looked on Friday.
