Geyser Springs, Sonoma County, PO 43 miles northwest of Santa Rosa, in one of the deep gorges of the St. Helena Mountains. These remarkable springs present a scene seldom seen on earth, and forcibly suggestive of a place not to be mentioned to ears polite. Numerous mineral springs, of all colors and temperatures, with extensive deposits of magnesia, sulphur, and other minerals, are to be found in the vicinity. The Witches' Cauldron, of black boiling water, with its sulphurous gases impregnating the air and appalling the senses, and the columns of steam forced into the air several hundred feet from crevices in the earth, with a noise resembling that made by a high-pressure steamboat, present the most interesting natural phenomena to be found on this coast. The locality is reached from San Francisco by steamer to Donahue, 34 miles; thence railroad to Cloverdale, 56 miles, and stage to the Geysers, 10 miles, or by steamer to Vallejo, 23 miles, thence railroad to Calistoga, 43 miles, then stage 23 miles over a road presenting some of the grandest scenic views to be obtained in the State.
