Technically, it's always erupting. Those two boat basins off of Lake Yellowstone were formed by steam explosions. These can get up to the energy of
one of the WWII A bombs. A few years ago when Park buffalo were running away, I e-mailed Prof. J. Lowenstein, the head of the YVO, down in Menlo
Park, CA. about whether Boise would survive the Pyroclastic flows. I never could get him to put it down in writing, one way or another. Boise, Id.
is around 250 miles away. My son was working down there at the time. Now he works out of S.E. Washington State.
Down beyond the South border of the Park, in the Gros Vente river valley, you can see seven or eight ash layers, in between solidified layered
pyroclastics. I guess it's just how lucky we are.
