Fly Geyser in the Black Rock Desert

The Black Rock Desert is an arid region in the northern Nevada section of the Great Basin known for its geologic features and as a venue for rocketry and land speed records. The desert has numerous volcanic and geothermal features, one of which is a little-known geothermal geyser located on a private ranch and accessible only by a small dirt road.

The Geyser is not an entirely natural phenomenon, and was accidentally created in 1916 during well drilling. The well functioned normally for several decades, but in the 1960s geothermally heated water found a weak spot in the wall and began escaping to the surface. Today water is constantly spewing, reaching 5 feet in the air. The geyser is made up of a series of different minerals, which gives it its magnificent coloration.

Given its coloration, it almost looks like was made artificially like something you would find in an amusement park. But watch the video below for proof that’s it’s real.

Here is an amateur video showing the Geyser in action:
