State route 34: the Black Rock Desert, Nevada

The Black Desert (110 km long, 32 km wide) is part of the dried up Laontan saltwater lake. This lake existed 7000 BC (during the last years of the Ice Age). Inside this area there are many black cliffs, volcanoes and sparkling geysers. The most prominent destinations among them are the strangely colored Fly geysers created by minerals, seaweed and cyanobacteriae (green and blue bacteria).

Fly geysers are not a completely natural phenomenon. In 1916, the owner of a private farm drilled a well in the hope that the desert would turn into fertile grass land, he accidentally drilled a bag of geothermal water. However, it was only in 1964 that hot water began to flush on the surface.
