Though some may disgust what it does or shoots, Fly Geyser in Nevada still looks great and magical from a distance. This one of a kind destination was built as a result of a man-made well being left uncapped. Geothermal energy has done its job and after some years, voila! The amazing Fly Geyser sprouted and started to shoot things upward.
