Well on the Terraserver satellite map it looked like a crop circle. The only question was is it still there? The sat map was from 1996. My friend and Technologist Rado had plotted it on his lap top and GPS. He knew where it was but not how to get there. I knew how to get there but maybe not where it was when we were there! Sounds like the good makings of a team exploration. On a Wensday afternoon we took off. This area had just had the wettest year in history. Everything was green. Flowers were everywhere and so were the animals.
Much to my surprise the lead cowboys horses and two pet burros had wondered off the ranch and were on the main road in.
While I had never seen any evidence of the crop circles I know that they were in an area that I had never walked. I could recognize from the topo and sat map, the dry lake at the entrance to hidden valley and new that I could find it. Rado was able to track us as we moved on his lap top and always keep the crop circle in relationship to our current position. passing the cliff dwellings I wondered if the crop circles predated them or not. At the sweat lodge it was teaming with life. In the sky you could see the primitive nature next to modern times.
At the lodge you could see the 1,000 years of ash the heated the lodge so one could possibly eat some root, sweat and cleanse the body then jump in the cold pond at the edge of the water fall.
In the ash a partially burned vertebra was exposed. This leads me to many question such as: Was it human? Why would a body be in the ash? I had never found anything else in the ash. And from what I understand this ash was just To heat rocks for the sweat lodge. Well this is just as puzzling as the crop circles that lay just to our northwest about two miles.
The contradictions of our search were many. In the rocks at the entrance we noticed a petrified ammonite from 65-to-400 million years ago.
And as for the present you could see on the ground near by that life and death has been playing out daily for millions of years on the spot we stood on. The jaw bone was proof that recently life and death has been playing out.
On the way out of hidden canyon we pass more burros this time a wild herd
By the map you can see a dry lake. Rado indicated that we were directly across from the center of the circle according to his gps. I said no we had to go Forward a quarter of a mile. As I was the driver I won and we pulled forward.
Rado walked directly to the spot he had said would be the center and I did not. He was right and I was wrong. He had found ground zero. Not of the aliens but of a 1940 bomb run.
Yes there were bombs all around us including a couple of unexploded ones.
Here I stand proudly having solved the riddle of the crop circle anomaly. However we were now a mile from the car because I had done my math instead of just using Rado's GPS. Frank the foreman of the ranch told us he remembered the bomb run and knew of the live rounds as well.
This was a good day at the ranch filled with culture shock.
It's really a 1940 bomb run for testing. Go figure!
