(TruthSeekerDaily) Mother Nature didn’t create this geothermal wonder, but neither did the aliens. In 1916, a rancher drilled a well in hopes of turning the desert into a fertile wetland, but accidentally hit a geothermal pocket of water. It wasn’t until 1964 that boiling water started to escape to the surface and that is how this geothermal wonder came to be. It’s located on private property, the Fly Ranch. This phenomena has been named Fly Geyser in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, located about 20 miles north of Gerlach.

Fly Geyser has continuously grown since the 1960s. It constantly spews hot water about five feet into the air which can been seen from miles away. The three green and red massive rock pillars that are 10 to 12-foot calcium carbonate cones – actually they are only about 3 feet tall, but the added height is due to the mounds they sit on. The red and green coloring on Fly Geyser is caused by thermophilic algae



Fly Geyser sits upon a sludge and dirt platform and is surrounded by terraces of warm water ponds which have spread to 30 – 40 pools over 74 acres.


Fish were added to warm pools surrounding Fly Geyser. Birds come there too as if it is making its own ecosystem in a desert habitat.



Several groups have attempted to buy Fly Geyser and turn it into public land. So far, they have all been denied. Friends of the Black Rock High Rock hope to see the land owners provide management and public access in the future…
