Thought I'd create this link to a picture of Fly Geyser. It's a man-made geyser created in the desert 2 1/2 hours north of Reno, when some energy company was trying (unsuccessfully) to tap into a large natural gas deposit.

Fly Geyser picture

As beautiful as it is, there is a small problem. It sits on private property about 2 miles from the nearest public road--and because of
its remote location (and inaccessibility), nobody has thought about turning it into a tourist attraction.

Also, because it is not a naturally created monument, the National Parks Service has no right of jurisdiction to turn it into a national park,
forest, or monument. And Nevada has shown no interest in doing so.

So, here it is--amazing, and phenomenal---and unseen by more than a couple of people
and the local coyotes.

"Peter" is just a (semi-?) automated spammer, googling for forum reactions based on the thread subject, and pasting year old reactions from other forums. They seem to make sense in context, but as you noticed, don't actually fit the thread topic. (The goal of this activity is to appear to blend in as a legitimate poster, so that follow-up spam is less likely to be deleted. Obviously that does not work here.)

Those geyser photos are something, though!
After searching a bit on how long this thing has already existed, I'm utterly amazed at that it hasn't been turned into a tourist attraction.
