Fly Geyser is located by the Black Rock Dessert in Northern Nevada where the famous Burning Man festival is held every year. It's a place of pure magic and bliss. Fly Geyser is not an entirely natural phenomenon; it was accidentally created by well drilling in 1964 exploring for sources of geothermal energy. The well may not have been capped correctly, or left unplugged, but either way dissolved minerals started rising and accumulating, creating the travertine mound on which the geyser sits and continues growing. Water is constantly released, reaching 5 feet (1.5 m) in the air. The #geyser contains several #terraces discharging #water into 30 to 40 pools over an area of 30 hectares (74 acres). The #geyser is made up of a series of different #minerals, but its #brilliant #colors are due to #thermophilic #algae.
