The existence of a geyser area near Beowawe, Nevada, was called to the attention of one of the writers early in 1932 by Dr. E. T. Allen of the Geophysical Laboratory. On August 26 of the same year, in the course of other field work in northern Nevada, both writers visited the area and spent a few hours studying it. The geysers are found within a small area, probably less than a quarter of a square mile in extent, about 6 miles by auto southwest of Beowawe, a station on the main lines of the Southern Pacific and Western Pacific railroads (Figure 1). The newly constructed Victory Highway, the main route for transcontinental auto traffic in Utah and Nevada, is about 10 miles north of Beowawe, a well maintained dirt road connecting the two.
