Articles in Geoglyphs
I’ve just been alerted to a very interesting site that shows possible geoglyphs in the USA – American Geoglyphs. None are as obvious as the Nazca Lines, and perhaps most of them are just natural landscapes. But these four might be man-made, in my opinion, so take a look:

There are interlocking rectangular cells and mounds, perfectly straight lines and tree like arrays that are uncharacteristic with natural erosion. These cover every topographical feature of the high plateau surrounding the lake, over flood plains, hills, cliffs and mountains. Although these geoglyphs are remarkable in their obvious strangeness, what is more astounding is that …
