This is an aerial view of land north of Emporium, PA and south of Smethport and Port Allegheny. It is a heavily wooded area and if you go to the regular map there is nothing marked there - nothing, not even roads. There are some forestry service roads but that is all. I added the yellow squiggly lines to emphasize the contours of the area.
When you zoom in really close there are some wide waterways with churning white water visible:
There is also this misty white area right next to one of the waterways. What are these things?
I asked my friend Ray and he said when he looks on his topographical maps he cannot find anything at all. He suggested it might be a Marcellus shale site which is possible but when I zoom way in I see no buildings or vehicles of any sort.
When I was working on my story about the Kinzua Viaduct I used Google Earth to zoom in on that and, as you can see below, you can see the fallen towers laying on the floor of the valley very clearly.
So what is this mysterious site in central Pennsylvania? Was it built by Martians? Hmmmmm, nothing as interesting as a good mystery. I'm open to suggestions!
Thanks for reading.
