Nature takes the lead in restoring the Valley of the Geysers
The «Vodopadnaya»and «Shel» geysers reappeared, spewing water and steam skyward with all their formal zeal. The famous wall of geysers «Vitrazh» (stained-glass window) re-appeared completely. As of the latest info, one of the valley's most beautiful geysers, Malachite Grotto was also reemerging from the waters.
The breach in the dam was expected by scientists, as well as the subsiding water. Likely a thermal lake of moderate size will still remain behind the dam, but the main attractions of the valley will be re-exposed, particularly in areas where the popular nature trail once lay.
These events testify to the fact that it is not necessary to take aggressive measures to restore the Valley. Nature will heal its own wounds and come to life once again.
