They had long hair and all were dirtier than we were. They stood along the trail and stared at us as we drove past, they were a spooky bunch of people but they never said anything to us.
we found out a little while later that those strange people were Charlie Manson and his infamous family.
By the way, that stuff is still there as of 1994. I was a cop in the Navy at China Lake and had to drive by that place to get to my patrol area. It always made me feel creepy.

Found some newspapers dated to the 30's, a wood burning stove. There was a wheel house with the remains of a very large winch, no motor. Accross the river there was a cable that looped over a large shiv about 100' up a cliff, right over a mine opening. I'm sure it's all gone by now, from what I understand the whole area got over run with the California equity boom.

I've been living in Arizona now for about 16 years. There are more magic places and suprises here than I could list. Can I get a witness!

This town still exists I believe. I've been to many Ghost towns in that area (Vulcan, Ute-Ulay, Carbon, Carson and Old Carson, Bonanza, just to name a few) and some are still very untouched. This past summer I found a totally untouched town with complete china and glassware.

So you did donuts in a graveyard?

Found this over the weekend on some public land. The first thing is a train boxcar the thing is. The wheeling spot is no where near any tracks. Just by it there is a abandoned and demolished structure that looks like it was a holding pen for animals. I don't know the story behind them.

Great thread guys. I love hearing these stories. My weirdest encounter was when me and my dad were riding our dirt bikes up in the mountains of PA. We had been riding for about an hour or so and stumbled across 3 concrete silos. Or at least i think that's what they were. They were about 40 feet in diameter and sticking about 3 feet outta the ground. Missile silos maybe? They were about 100ft from each other in a triangular pattern. It was very strange. But it gets weirder. We decide to keep riding farther into the mountains since it was still fairly early. Eventually the trail we were following stops at the chain link fence with barb wire around the top of it. We get off our bikes to try and see if we can see anything and through a gap in the trees we could see this weird dome like thing. I don't really know how to describe it. Just this big sun baked white dome that was probably if i had to guess about twice the size as an average home. Literally in the middle of the mountains. It was pretty wild. From there we decided to back track our way back to our truck and it took us over 3 hours so we covered some ground before we found this stuff. I know we weren't the first to see this stuff since we were following four wheeler trails the whole time but it definitely left me wondering what that stuff was

Also in New Mexico in the Carlsbad Caverns they have a bottomless pit. That thing was crazy.. they had some huge spot lights shinning down in it, and you couldnt see ANYTHING. They were huge bright lights too.. just cave walls and an empty void.
My Grandma had a house with a pond in the back they had multiple people out there to see how deep it was but no one could answer it they think it was connected to the lake across the street
