Today’s OT photo is from Texan59:
Green Fly Geyser, Nevada
Located about 100 miles north of Reno, Nevada, is the tiny town of Gerlach. Twenty miles north of that is Fly Ranch, home to one of the most unique geysers in the world.
The most striking aspect of the Fly Geyser is its vibrant colors, which are caused by thermophilic algae. The erupting water leaves behind calcium carbonate deposits that have accumulated over the years and have formed the large geyser mound and multiple terraces. Thermophilic algae thrive in these conditions, creating the brilliant red and green hues that give the geyser its unforgettable look.

    Since Holder confiscated his gun,he seems to be having little trouble re-arming.And if anybody in this country needs to protect himself,its him.

    What kind of friggin’ country is this? She’s supposed to work for us, even if she IS a Commie. But we’re not allowed to know if she’s working or not? ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

  4. NHS in the UK is still a piece of work. And that’s where we’re headed.
