This world offers some rather incredible natural wonders – many of which are so stunningly beautiful, it’s hard to believe they’re real, including the Fly Geyser, pictured above. It sits on private land in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada about one-third of a mile from State Route 34. Once an ordinary well, drilled in the early part of the 20th century, over time, piping hot geothermal waters began rising through its cracks and up to the surface of the ground to become it is today.
