Fly Geyser

Feel free to comment below

I’ve always loved unusual natural geological features, geysers are actually known as temporary geological features. In fact Fly Geyser is not an entirely natural phenomenon; it was accidentally created by well drilling in 1964 exploring for sources of geothermal energy. The well may not have been capped correctly, or left unplugged, either way dissolved minerals started rising and accumulating, creating the travertine mound on which the geyser sits and continues growing. A ranger in Yellowstone National Park once refused to believe this was real, he told me “It’s Disneyland, it’s made of fibreglass“.
