This gorgeous geyser isn’t a naturally occurring spring. It was created by accident back in 1964 after drilling took place in search of sources for geothermal energy. Although hot water was successfully struck, it wasn’t hot enough for generating electricity, so the new well was capped. The cap didn’t hold, which lead to the creation of Fly Geyser, where colorful dissolved minerals have been rising with the water and accumulating along with thermophilic algae for over 50 years.
