Fly, the strangest geyser in the world

Geiser Fly Nevada
Our planet is full of incredible places (colored mountains, rocks suspended hundreds of meters away, colored rivers ...) and, as you know, in Hard Hobbit To Break we love to show them to you. Today, for example, we move to Nevada, United States, where the geyser is located. Fly.

As with Darvaza's Gate to Hell, this geyser it did not form completely naturally. Still, it's worth a look at even once in a lifetime. Do you want to know how it was formed? Here we explain it to you!

Strange and colorful shapes

It all started in 1916, when some wells were drilled with the aim of finding water to be able to give livestock water and irrigate crops. However, when drilling they found a aquifer at more than 200 degrees centigrade, something very common in the region. The hole was plugged, but in the mid-1960s prospecting was carried out for geothermal energy, and then a geyser began to flow: liquefied minerals accumulated, creating strange and colorful shapes.

A little-known tourist attraction

Today, the so-called Fly Geyser houses an enormous biodiversity, with hundreds of species of birds, plants and different lakes. Unfortunately the geyser does not have an entrance open to the public, since it belongs to a private streak called “Fly Ranch”, although on second thought, it is a way of keep it intact.

The funny thing is that it is a little-known tourist attraction even in its own state. Of course, everyone who knows of its existence does not hesitate to go to the ranch, which is fenced. Then we leave you with our Gallery, where you can see some beautiful images of the Fly geyser. Do not miss it!
