Nevadans have long been aware that desert landscapes are some of the most fascinating places to explore. Contrary to popular belief, our deserts are full of life and extraordinary wonders. They’re hiding the most incredible plant life, wildlife, and even some of the strangest natural wonders you’ll ever see. For example, most people don’t realize there’s a giant boiling hot spring hiding smack dab in the middle of the remote desert.
