Fly Geyser, Nevada


Recommended Posts

Has anyone here ever seen this in person? The pictures look amazing, almost like another world....

Fly Geyser

Located on a gated parcel of private property within the million-acre Black Rock Desert, Fly Geyser is not a natural phenomenon. It was created accidentally in 1964 from a geothermal test well inadequately capped. The scalding water has erupted from the well since then, leaving calcium carbonate deposits growing at the rate of several inches per year. The brilliant red and green coloring on the mounds is from thermophilic algae thriving in the extreme micro-climate of the geysers.

I've never been but those do indeed look amazing. Photoshop is a wonderful thing.

Yes that is amazing, not so much "photoshopping" going on, that's pretty much what it looks like.... ;)
