Way too often, though, these places are not close enough for most of us to visit! Here is one that is fairly close, considering. Man, from the pictures I've seen this place is pretty amazing!
Fly Geyser Reno
Fly Geyser was accidentally created in 1916 while drilling a well for water, though they didn’t start forming until 1960. The spot picked had an unknown geothermal area. The heated water eventually found a weak spot in the well and pushed itself to the surface. The minerals started building up to create a mini volcano of about 5 ft. tall, with layers of terraces. The terraces have different colors from the minerals in the water and the geothermal water has found more weak spots to create two more geysers nearby. The water spouts continuously and fills holes and hollows in the terraces, to give the area a surreal look. Water where there isn’t much water to begin with has attracted swans, ducks, and other animals to the area. Fish also swim through the ponds, introduced by an unknown human dropping the eggs in the water.
Let's have our coffee out on the patio this morning! We have a couple of new folks joining us and that's always a nice thing! Welcome to all our new friends!
