The second highest mountain in the Cascades, Mount Shasta is no ordinary peak in the region. It is a prominent pick among nature lovers wanting a step-up journey in the wild. And when we say step-up, let’s associate it with out-of-the world encounters like the eerie presence of vital energy or commonly known as vortex. In the ancient cultures, vortexes were considered as portals to a higher dimension of perception. Even the locals who live in the town can tell you stories about the distinctiveness of this dormant volcano. There were lots of stories about encounters with Lemurians, Saint Germain the explorer, and alien landings. But aside from the astral energies surrounding the place, the mountain is a great destination for your travel. Standing at more than 14, 000 ft. above sea level, hikers and mountaineers will surely appreciate the journey up with a hint of thrill.
When a site’s supposed to be a simple abode for cattle and other charming animals, Skinwalker has become special in so many ways. The 480 acres of land is a favorite site among lovers of supernatural activities and dark energies. For many years, there have been sightings of giant creatures with piercing red eyes and unidentified flying objects that emit destructive magnetic aura. Its mystery has captured, not just scientific people, but also filmmakers. Owned by the National Institute for Discovery Science, the place became the inspiration for the movie entitled ‘Skinwalker Ranch’. Up until the present time, Skinwalker Ranch still attracts wanderers in the most unconventional manner.
Alight with prominence and mystery, Joshua Tree is definitely one of the places you should include in your USA bucket list. The national park is fascinatingly protected within a vast sheltered area in the southern California. Within the environs of the park settle two different desert ecosystems— the Colorado and the Mojave. These biomes come together to feature a large variety of flora and fauna, which is molded with distinctive landscape and weather. But it’s not just the fascinating mélange of plants and animals that makes Joshua Tree an attraction to behold, but also the touch of surreal geological activities within the vast wilderness. Explore for yourself and experience how the intimidating rock formations and uncanny natural motions lure you into a rather meditative state.
Cedar Breaks National Monument appears to be a grand golden staircase that entices every visitor into a realm of spiral magic. This national piece of art can be traced millions of years ago, where natural developments helped in weaving such profound geological amphitheater. The Cedar Breaks features more than 10, 000 feet of towering wonder that makes it a great site for stargazers, hikers, and even mystery lovers. Acclaimed by the International Dark Sky Park, the charming yet peculiar cosmic vibes also gives a much more enthralling aura for your stargazing sessions.
A mysterious bottomless hole in Manastash Ridge, Washington, Mel’s Hole is a definite sight to take a glimpse of. Over the years, many have tried to measure the deepness of the hole, but up to now there has been no exact calculation of its depth. Once, a fishing line with 15 miles height was thrown into the hole, but it never hit the ground. A neighbor also tried tossing his dead dog into the pit yet there were no signs of it touching the bottom, rather a weird reincarnation of creatures happened. It seems that Mel’s Hole has the ability to reanimate dead animals being thrown into its vicinity. Hence, giving heaps of speculations about the pit’s dead end as a tunnel to the other dimension of life. The theories were never verified and no one knows where Mel’s hole leads.
Notably known for its ‘Sailing Stones’, Racetrack Playa continues to bewilder wanderers in a rather weird sense. For many years, people have wondered how the stones move across the surface, leaving very visible tracks. Some may associate the strong winds with a speed that could reach up to 90 mph and the wet clay that makes a thing move freely as the reasons behind the sailing of the stones. But no one has ever seen such phenomena in motion, giving lots of room for unanswered theories. Well, it may be caused by natural activities yet it’s something that will surely make you scratch your head for a minute or two.
Into the breathtaking abyss of azure waters, Crater Lake brings out beauty and mystery in one setting. Tucked in Oregon, USA, the Crater Lake is the deepest lake in USA with a serious depth of 1, 949 feet. The stunning scenery of the lake, not just exude natural magnificence, but also electromagnetic forces, making it a rather mystical destination to venture in. Visitors would say that prolong watching of its depth seems to invite lasting distress and even death. There are also certain reports of UFO-related sightings and other paranormal activities within the Crater Lake National Park.
Most historical structures have a story behind its construction, and the Coral Castle is no exception. Made from hefty boulders that weigh more than 1000 tons, the unusual architectural style of this castle makes it a charm of its own. And more than the fascinating features it portray, the structure was built by only one man named Edward Leedskalnin from 1923 to 1951, as a tribute to his supposed to be wife who left him before their wedding.
