Derweze, also known as the door to hell, is a 70 meter wide hole in the middle of the Karakum desert. The hole was formed in 1971 when a team of soviet geologists had their drilling rig collapse when they hit a cavern filled with natural gas. In an attempt to avoid poisonous discharge, they decided to burn it off, thinking that the gas would be depleted in only a few days. Derweze is still burning today - TURKMENISTAN
This is similar to Justin and I’s new front door, but ours is a deep red. I’m now wishing we would’ve chosen this dark color, but the sun hitting it might be bad. I will accessorize our entry somewhat like this! :) SPRING!!
