Beautiful places around Earth


Fly Geyser, Gerlach, Nevada, USA

It looks as if this psychedelic geyser was plucked from an alien planet and plonked into the rugged countryside of Washoe County. But it was actually the result of human activity. A geothermal energy company drilled here in the 1960s and though the water they hit upon wasn’t hot enough for their purposes, they failed to seal the site back up again. As a result, water spurts in all directions from the hulking, rainbow mound, whose colors are the result of the algae it's covered in.
