Stunning Shots of Fly Geyser, Nevada's Hidden Treasure (Photo)
As you all know by now, we love finding extraordinary destinations off the beaten path like Lake Baikal in Siberia. Today, we bring you another one which can only be described as surreal or otherworldly. Fly Geyser (or Fly Ranch Geyser) is a a small geothermal geyser that is located approximately 20 miles north of Gerlach, in Washoe County, Nevada. Called "one of the most beautiful sights in Nevada," the geyser is a little-known tourist attraction even to Nevada residents.

Accidentally created in 1916 during well drilling, the geyser started spewing water in the 1960s when a geothermally heated pack of water found a weak spot in the wall and began escaping. Dissolved minerals rose and accumulated creating the mound on which the geyser sits. Water now continually spews into the air, reaching up to 5 feet, making it resemble a miniature volcano.

I like what the photographer Jared Ropelato says about it, "As you walk around Fly Geyser you notice that this thing has a bit of Beauty, and a bit of the Beast. A little Jeckyl and a little Hyde. The color however, is like a rainbow on all sides."

Photographer Christian Klepp described it this way, "This weird and unearthly landscape could have existed somewhere on Jupiter's volcanic moon Io....Such unearthly landscapes are rare on Earth, but they exist. Maybe this helps to imagine how Earth might have looked like at its very beginning. Heat and sulfur resistant bacteria feed on the boiling water of the geyser. Just like in the beginning of life on Earth."

Here are some of our favorite photos of one of the world's most amazing places.

LOL! I was the caretaker of the Fly Ranch 1998-99

It was my job to chase people away from the geyser - insurance liabilities.

But, I got to use it. :)

It was totally awesome! One of my favorite memories was floating in the hot pond in the middle of the night under a starry sky - hearing the coyotes howl in the distance and knowing I was the only human for miles and miles in almost any direction.

probably what Alice Cooper thought too. There was a rumor about 10 years ago that he was interested in purchasing the Fly Ranch and geyser.

Yep - that's how ended up there. Went for the cleanup after Burning Man '98 and decided to stay for awhile. Was the bartender at the Black Rock Saloon in Gerlach. (that was before the Burning Man DPW bought it)

That's because it's waaaaaaaaay out in the middle of nowhere, on a 4,500 acre private ranch. Anyone visiting will need permission to go beyond the locked gate.

maybe a little bit - I've always stared up at the stars in wonder and awe since childhood - nothing to do with astronomy or astrology - I just love gazing at the stars :)
