A short comment in the God Is Alive, Magic Is Afoot story below this one seems to have gotten the interest of those "Anything Arizona" enthusiast - of which I am one.
Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark seems to have nurtured an already existent Conspiracy Theory that The Government whom we all trust and hold Sacred combined with the Archaeological Elite and The Church [pick one, they are all the same] are keeping a HUGE chunk of history from us.
Look at the pic above.... just above the waterline of the Colorado at flood stage, right? Kinda like The Valley Of The Kings in Egypt? (now underwater). Nahhhhhh some crazy miner with a pickaxe just spotted some color in the canyon wall and went after it.. right.. maybe back in the 1800's? Probably?
Check the arch. PEAKED like in the classic Egyptian style. and a SCULPTED peak, too. Not something you can do with a case of dynamite and a Boy Scout hatchet. Also the peaked arch SEEMS to be carved into a stone that has beem dressed and FITTED into the canyon wall in a lock-fit fashion.. like it's important that the peak be exactly verticle at the opening.......... and where are all the tailings. The work debris?
There are ancient mines in Sycamore Canyon, worked by the indians long ago AND a legendaty "hidden" pyramid said to be buried in the hills of Sycamore Canyon visible from the air.
It's an interesting story and a good read if you can dodge the paranoid aspect of Conspiracy Theory. Then again if it is NOT a conspiracy theory and you CAN avoid the mental traps and pitfals, Hey wait up.... I'd like to follow you!
