a bunch of the plein air sketches I was working on during my Utah trip! A week drawing rocks, getting mistaken for a ranger twice- pretty ideal.
what the heck, this seems appropriate for Mystic Places as well.
I was sketching and keeping a mini travel journal the entire time I was out in Utah- I’m sure Atrus would’ve been proud. :)
Fly Geyser | Washoe County, Nevada
The Geyser is not an entirely natural phenomenon, and was accidentally created in 1916 during the drilling of a well. The well functioned normally for several decades, but then in the 1960s geothermally heated water found a weak spot in the wall and began escaping to the surface. Dissolved minerals started rising and piling up, creating the mount on which the geyser sits, which is still growing to date.
