First off, i know there was an old thread about this place. It has been dead for about three years now.
I decided to update the topic with some fresh breathtaking photos i found on the browse. I didn't like the lengthy Wunderground piece on it, so i
wrote my own.
Located on Fly Ranch Nevada, the extremely photogenic Fly Geyser Is a privately owned natural wonder, closed off from the public. While it took
drilling for a thermal well in 1916 until 1964 when the well began to leak, to start the phenomenon, its completely natural and accidental.
The Geyser grows at a rate of about three inches a year, its calcium deposits is home to an extreme micro ecosystem. The bright red and green colors
are that of the thermophilic algae that thrive in the two hundred degree water. All thermophiles require hot water, but have differing needs. Some
require acidic water to thrive while others need sulfur or calcium carbonate and others live in alkaline springs.
Its so beautiful, i almost get an alien vibe against the rest of the landscape.

Thanks Warren Willis, your amazing photography brightened up my day.
