USA, Nevada: Fly Geyser Now Owned by Burning Man Organization

Burning Man Just Purchased Property in Nevada For Year-Round Activities (THUMP)

On Friday, Burning Man, which organizes an annual gathering at Black Rock City—a temporary community erected in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, announced the purchase of nearby Fly Ranch, a 3,800-acre parcel of land 21 miles north of Gerlach, Nevada. The organization aims to use the property to "amplify and extend the culture born from the Burning Man event into the larger world" by facilitating a year-round community and activities.

According to the organization, the land includes 640 acres of wetlands, hot and cold natural spring-water pools, sagebrush-grasslands, and playa that opens onto the Hualapai Flat valley. Fly Ranch most famously includes the "Fly Geyser," a geothermal geyser that deposits minerals and algae as it shoots water up to five feet in the air.
