on the website aliendave.com and from meeting several members of the Utah Ufo Hunters group (including Dave) I was told of the legend of a secret
ventalation shaft on the side of a mountain, which supposedly supplied air for a deep underground base.
Although I'm a huge fan of alien dave and it was a pleasure meeting him in person, unfortunatly we found no evidence of a secret air shaft to a
The site is located in a mountain just off the road to Mercur Utah. We found the shaft at about 1am. We put on our spelunking gear and managed to
wiggle a few metal bars loose and shimmied down the shaft. once past the metal sides we entered a entrance that was dug with a pick. The tunnel was
not some futuristic black glass lined walls but rather a old miner shaft digging for mercury! The tunnelS extend for about 60-80 yards and are large
enough to stand up in at most points (except for the cramp entrance). We found several old vintage mining tools and excavation infastructure, which
we left in place. The tunnles both abruptly end and both have a downward elevated slant to them. The only thing mysterious about the whole tunnel
was how one person could spend a lifetime digging it.
We did have the brand new truck's battery mysteriously die mere seconds before we decended into the tunnel, which we both though was coincidently
suspecious. (luckily we had a spare battery jumper) and never experienced a battery failure since that time!
Anyhow i'm always up to chase after a good story, rumor, or mystery, unfortunately in this case the story was better than the truth.
