Hot Spring Smoke Creek Desert

This hot spring was hidden behind some old ranch houses on the southwest side of the Smoke Creek Desert.  Recently someone burnt the ranch houses down making the spot a bit less secluded.

Sun over the Playa

The Black Rock Desert in Northern Nevada is one of the most desolate places I have ever been – Miles of flat cracked playa in the summer and almost a shallow lake of wet mud in the winter.  But, once a year an entire city is built there for a week.

Fly Geysers at Sunset

I was fortunate enough to get access to the Fly Geysers in the Black Rock Desert in 2009.  Despite their image being an iconic image for Nevada, they are actually on private land. These geysers are actually man made, but after flowing for decades, they formed this Yellowstone like formation.  The beauty of these geysers is then accented by the surrounding beauty of the northern Black Rock Desert.

In the Face of the Storm

A Black-eyed Susan faces where the rising sun would be if it was not for the forthcoming storm. This was taken in the Smoke Creek Desert.
