Hi Smyleegrl, I'm reporting back from our trip to the area. We spent most of our weekend in the upper corner of the triangle on the California side,
high in the Sierra mountain range.
Sorry to say that none of the locals had any Nevada-triangle-related stories, but I agree with the other posters here who described the area as being
prone to wind shears and other natural phenomena. The juxtaposition of high and low altitudes (I drove from 3K feet elevation to 7K feet elevation in
30 minutes) makes the wind do strange things. During a two-hour period almost every afternoon, the wind blew so strongly that we had to secure
everything outside from blowing away. It even hurled a ceramic coffee cup across the yard. And, then it died down to almost nothing.
I took a long hike around some mountain lakes that were eerily, oppressively silent. When people talk about having the feeling that they're being
watched when they're out in the middle of nowhere, I now know what they mean. It was probably just bears, but it was unsettling.
The other thing that I noticed is that the ground is quite full of mineral deposits. Does anyone know the possible impacts that large amounts of
minerals might have on the magnetic fields in the area?
I'll continue to keep my eyes open for more information about the triangle. The one in Alaska is interesting, too.
