interesting article and thought I'd
share. Apparently, there is a labyrinth hidden inside the Nazca lines.
Completely hidden in the flat and featureless landscape, the labyrinth was identified after a five-year investigation into the arid Peruvian coastal
plain land, about 250 miles south of Lima, where the mysterious geoglyphs are located. "As you walk it, only the path stretching ahead of you is
visible at any given point," Clive Ruggles of the University of Leicester's School of Archaeology and Ancient History, said.
The spiral in the above pic marks the end of the labyrinth.
First discovered by Ruggles when he spent a few days on the Nazca desert back in 1984, the labyrinth lies in the midst of the study area. "Factors
beyond my control brought the 1984 expedition to an abrupt halt. It was only 20 years later that I eventually had the opportunity to return to Nazca,
relocate the figure and study it fully," Ruggles said. He added that the only way to become aware of the labyrinth is to walk its 2.7-mile length
through a disorienting twisting path.
So, in order to "see" the labyrinth, you have to actually walk it.

There's been a lot of speculation concerning the reasons for the Nazca lines....does this evidence of a labyrinth change things?
