Accidental Oasis In The Middle Of Nevada

Burning Man is not the only man made wonder in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. Seeker Stories presents a story about a man made oasis which sprung from an industrial mining accident on the edge of the vast desert. The gorgeous landmark is known as Fly Geyser and came to being when an electrical power company dug a little too deep and released water filled with sulfuric minerals. Overtime, the water attracted an algae that feeds on the minerals and turned the natural build up of limestone into vibrantly colored mounds.


The Lookout: The first line against forest fires

Each summer, Leif Haugen lives in a tiny cabin in the Flathead National Forest of northwestern Montana, where he serves as the fire lookout for the forest. His amenities are few. There is no running water or electricity in the cabin that serves as his home and office. He spends his days sitting in solitary watching for any signs of a fire, quickly responding to the occasional outbreak. Brian Bolster’s film ‘The Outlook’ follows Leif through his time on up on the mountain documenting the nuances of his crucial role while also featuring the beautiful views and vast nature that surrounds him.
