I am really happy that you all appreciate this map. It's been some years since I put it up and I haven't gone to Dulce to check it out. I was in
Southern Colorado a few weeks ago and I ended up within 15 miles where the black hanger is in the forest south of Pagosa Springs, but my friend was
frightened to go so we didn't check it out.
Anyway, I think more attention needs to be directed to Navajo Peak in Southern Colorado (I believe there are multiple Navajo Peak's in Colorado). I
made a map that showed an 18 mile equilateral triangle with one corner on the school in Dulce, one corner on the Black Hanger near Pagosa, and the
other corner of the triangle on the door that appeared to be in the top of Navajo Peak.
What is strange is now this door is not in the google satellite maps. At the time I first posted on ATS here, I found it on old maps from what I
thought were different satellites and slightly different angles. This "door" image some years after I posted this map here in this thread seemed to
become replicated on the google maps of the general Dulce area so that it began to appear as an "Artifact" many times on the map. I don't think that
it was originally all over the map, and I don't think that now it is there at all.
It definitely isn't showing the door looking structure on the top of Navajo Peak on google maps anymore.
But like I said, this mountain just calls to me, it could be intuition. It's remote, and I think if there are experimental planes being flown near
Dulce it's more likely that they are at this nearby mountain because there are so much less people to see it.
Anyway I was looking at a map of the area and I noticed this weird path of what looks like full grown, knocked down, and stacked trees that leads
almost 4 miles from the Navajo river to within less than a quarter mile of the geographic point where I had that mountain top door marked out all
those years ago. I think this line of knocked down trees needs to be newer because I feel that I'd have noticed it before when I made these maps. It
is very obvious from the satellite images that someone went through a lot of trouble for this:
These knocked down trees could be due to logging, but there is no evidence of heavy truck activity. There are also other areas I have marked on the
map where there seems to be an uncommonly high amount of felled trees. It's possible that all these trees are stacked to form a road? This doesn't
seem likely because there are lots of dirt roads in the area, and anyway the line of trees does not follow the terrain, so it'd make a terrible road.
It is possible that the trees are knocked down as a property marker but it seems like quite an effort to knock down and stack a ton of full grown
trees instead of just getting some barbed wire. In some parts there do not appear to be any trees but the path is still clearly demarcated from the
satellite view, so the road must get some usage.
Whatever the reason, these stacks of trees restrict cars from passing beyond this line so not even your jeep is going to get over a big stack of
Ponderosa Pine trees.
Any other ideas for a reasoning behind this anybody?
I really want to explore this area but I need to find some maps and see who owns the land.
If anybody has the time I did not have the time as I made this map to check out every inch of the path fully zoomed in, but I will later.
