Gravity happens.
In the Alps a progressively failing landslide on the banks of the Lac du Chambon has required a change to the route of a famous stage of the Tour de France

Holy Geyser, Batman! Head out of Reno for a relaxing hot bath under the desert moon after a hard night chasing criminals. Fly Geyser's been spouting for over 50 years since an abandoned geothermal well went awry.

Water Hole #1 in Golconda, Nevada — a bar made famous in the late 1970s by an industrious pig, Waterhole Ike — closed sometime within the last two to three years, before I had a chance to stop by and check out their beer collection.

For someone who can’t get enough of a place, I certainly don’t go there very often. I went maybe thirteen years ago to visit friends living in Moab, Utah, and to watch the Perseid meteor shower on a moonless night in Arches N...
