Hi all, long time reader and first time poster, motivated in no small part by what I discovered tonight.
Long story short, I was poking around on USGS map data to see if I could find any potential infrared/radar signatures for a subterranean base in or
near Archuleta Mesa (earthexplorer.usgs.gov...
). This turned up nothing, so I decided to take a look at any ground penetrating radar data from
New Mexico...and found this:
Notice that in the map there is a very strange graphical anomaly that corresponds directly with the location of Abiquiu Reservoir. To further confirm
this being anomalous, I examined the New Mexico map to find that Los Alamos had measurements taken and there were no similar anomalies in Nevada,
California, Colorado and Ohio, including the Groom Lake facility. I'm still going through the remaining states but nothing is turning up. Very
Further examination of the Abiquiu Reservoir via Google Maps turned up another strange anomaly slightly to the southwest; there is a grid of streets
laid out next to the reservoir with a single road leading to a building on the shore. Some piles of broken rocks (presumably fill) are visible at the
peninsula just to the northeast.
I then examined the history of the area, especially the Abiquiu Dam:
Constructed from 1956-1963 at the height of the Cold War, it required 9.02 million cubic meters of fill to create what is now the largest reservoir in
the United States. It strikes me as very odd that the government would build a dam and associated reservoir of this capacity in a state with less
than 1 million residents in 1960; I will also note that as described in the above Wikipedia article, the first proposal for a "flood control" dam was
proposed in 1948, shortly after Roswell. Although I don't think this was motivated by aliens, I do think it was inspired by the growing threat of the
In addition, I performed a calculation using the area of the main "square" of streets mentioned above; based upon the amount of earth/stone moved
during the construction of the dam it would permit construction of an single-story facility with a ceiling height of a little more than 10.5
Tracing out the rectangular area of the main streets produces a rough total perimeter of 6,800 meters; i.e. dimensions of ~1400 by 2000 meters, or 2.8
million square meters. With 9.02 million meters of fill removed to build the dam, that results in the 10.5 inch ceiling height for the facility.
Note, however, that a 1.4x2.0 kilometer, single floor facility would be massive by any stretch of the imagination. Most likely it would be a more
manageable 1km by 1km with 9 levels to segregate the various projects and provide greater insulation against nuclear attack.
The construction of the Cheyenne Mountain NORAD installation produced huge amounts of fill, and the salt caves modified to store the Strategic
Petroleum Reserve show this is entirely possible; if memory serves they have a total capacity of as high as 17 million cubic meters of petroleum.
Furthermore, its close proximity to Los Alamos makes it an ideal site to conduct military research without the global notoriety of the Los Alamos
site; indeed, it would be masterful Cold War misdirection to place a major research site in close proximity to a well known sight clearly visible by
Based upon this information combined with the anomaly described above, I think there is strong evidence to conclude a base exists underground near the
Furthermore, I need to appeal to the ATS team regarding some missing information:
1. I have had no luck at finding zoning information regarding the "square" near the Reservoir from the Rio Arriba County's website; the Google Maps
result shows a handful of houses but I'm under impression the Army Corps of Engineers is the owner of the land surrounding the Reservoir.
2. I wasn't able to find earthquake information regarding this area; I see the cluster near Dulce but I'm clueless when it comes to searching for
specific events near Abiquiu. That being said, I doubt they would need to use any kind of unconventional explosive to construct the base; the
construction of the dam would require the use of conventional explosives and the government as well as private industry have been more than capable of
Lastly, a skeptical evaluation: I think it's plausible that the street network constructed southwest of the Reservoir is the remains of a temporary
camp constructed for the workers building the dam during the 1950's and 1960's.
I welcome hearing your thoughts on this analysis as well as any additional information you can provide in regards to my inquiries.
