Really amazing nature: Fly Geyser Nevada

Fly Geyser - Washoe County Nevada
I really, really can't stop to look this pics. This is amazing. This is a picture that describes my dreams of paradise.

Fly Geyser , also known as Fly Ranch Geyser is a man-made small geothermal geyser located in Washoe County , Nevada approximately 20 miles ( 32 km ) north of Gerlach . Fly Geyser is located near the edge of Fly Reservoir and is only about 5 feet ( 1 .5 m ) high , but 12 feet ( 3 .7 m ) counting the mound on which it sits in 2013 .

Fly Geyser is located on the private Fly Ranch in Hualapai Flat , about 0 .3 miles ( 0 .48 km ) from State Route 34 . The ranch is currently owned by Todd Jaksick. There is a high fence and a locked gate topped with spikes to exclude trespassers . The only access is a dirt road , but it is large enough to be seen from the road .

Fly Geyser is not an entirely natural phenomenon ; it was accidentally created by well drilling in 1964 discovering for availability of geothermal energy . The well might not are capped properly , or staying unplugged , however in either case dissolved minerals began growing and also building up , making the travertine mound on which the geyser sits and proceeds developing . Water is consistently released , getting to 5 feet ( 1 .5 m ) in the air . The geyser has a number of terraces discharging water into 30 to 40 pools over a location of 30 hectares ( 74 acres ) . The geyser consists of a number of several minerals , but its amazing colors are as a result of thermophilic algae .

Madagascar, officially the Republic of Madagascar and previously known as the Malagasy Republic, is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the southeastern coast of Africa. The nation comprises the island of Madagascar (the fourth-largest island in the world), as well as numerous smaller peripheral islands. Following the prehistoric breakup of the supercontinent Gondwana, Madagascar split from India around 88 million years ago, allowing native plants and animals to evolve in relative isolation. Consequently, Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot; over 90 percent of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth. The island's diverse ecosystems and unique wildlife are threatened by the encroachment of the rapidly growing human population.

Maldives officially the Republic of the Maldives and also referred to as the Maldive Islands, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean consisting of a double chain of twenty-six atolls, oriented north-south, that lie between Minicoy Island (the southernmost part of Lakshadweep, India) and the Chagos Archipelago. The chains stand in the Laccadive Sea, about 700 kilometres (430 mi) south-west of Sri Lanka and 400 kilometres (250 mi) south-west of India.

For the majority of its history, the Maldives has been an independent polity, despite three instances during which it was ruled by outside forces. In the mid-15th century, for fifteen years, the Maldives was dominated by the Portuguese Empire. In the mid-17th century, the Dutch Empire (Malabar) dominated Maldives for four months. Finally, in the late 19th century, on the brink of war, the Maldives became a British protectorate from 1887 until 1965. The Dutch referred to the islands as the "Maldivische Eilanden", while the British anglicised the local name for the islands first to the "Maldive Islands" and later to the "Maldives". The islands gained independence from the British in 1965 and became a republic in 1968 ruled by a president and an authoritarian government.

Edinburgh, magical land of Harry Potter inspiration

Edinburgh, Scotland
Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, situated on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth. With a population of 495,360 in 2011 (up 1.9% from 2010), it is the largest settlement in Lothian and lies at the centre of a larger urban zone of approximately 850,000 people. While the town originally formed on the ridge descending from the Castle Rock, the modern city is often said to be built on seven hills.

From its prehistoric beginning as a hillfort, following periods of Celtic and Germanic influence, Edinburgh became part of the Kingdom of Scotland during the 10th century. With burgh charters granted by David I and Robert the Bruce, Edinburgh grew through the Middle Ages as Scotland’s biggest merchant town. By the time of the European Renaissance and the reign of James IV it was well established as Scotland's capital. The 16th century Scottish Reformation and 18th century Scottish Enlightenment were formative periods in the history of the city, which played a central role in both. While political power shifted to London following the Treaty of Union in 1707, devolution in 1997 has resulted in the return of a Scottish parliament.

Edinburgh is the magical land of Harry Potter inspiration, beautifully preserved architecture, whisky, and drinking, dancing and snow-capped peaks.
