I recently found this interesting topic, but there is no data available and even the search engine of mighty ATS strikes zero. So, can anyone help to unravel this dilemma?

Fort Walsh

Seems like there hasn't been any studies done at this location, or has it been declared as naturally formed?

Thanks in advance!

Those pictures a pretty low res. Anyway, Looks like a very nice place to visit. I've seen similar formations on the mountains near my house though. But I wouldn't put it past our native Canadians. They were more advanced than the colonists lead us to believe. S&F

The pictures are truly of poor quality. It states that the site is on private land and visiting should be arranged by local travel company... Is this a moneymaker or real site? However, really mysterious anyway.

It is uncertain whether these stones were shaped by nature, or whether they were carved by humans.


Looks like they were shaped by nature. If you spend some time up north on the Canadian shield, (I believe which was created by volcanic activity many moons ago) you see tons and tons of rock formations like this...

Could you link some images so I can compare? Thanks for the tip.

i went here as a kid a long time ago, i am pretty sure it was said the place was created by the natives in the area a long time ago, it is not naturally formed, even from my foggy memory i can tell you that.

now that i think about it the way yhr blocks were put together resembles the bimini road in Bahamas

Awesome link! Thanks! Got to rumble it through.

After reading the article:

Well written with passion. It gave a bit more insight, after those pictures I lean more to manmade than natural. Let's see what follows.

The Canadian Shield was formed when giant glaciers (which also shaped-out the Hudson's Bay) started to recede, leaving behind all of the rocks and minerals that they had scraped off the ground on their way south. There are no volcanoes in Canada, extinct or otherwise.

This list must then give the wrong impression?

List of volcanoes in Canada

However, none of them come close to this site.

I am amazed that anyone would make the claim that there are no volcanoes, extinct or otherwise, in Canada. Do you honestly believe that volcanoes magically stop at the US-Canada border?

Evidence of volcanic activity and extinct volcanoes can be found in most provinces and territories. This includes lava flows, lava plateaus, lava domes, and cinder cones.

While there have been no recent volcanic eruptions, the Tseax Cone in BC erupted around 1750-1755, resulting in the death of approx. 2000 Nisga'a people from volcanic gases.

Do you have anything similar mapped, or leylines pointing this one out? Because there was a mention of it maybe being directed with purpose.

That's wikipedia for ya. I have been all over this great nation and not once have I ever seen, nor even heard mention of any volcanoes. There are lots of mountainous formations in BC, but they are (to my knowledge) a result of tectonic subduction from the Pacific plate, not any sort of volcanic activity. I could be wrong, but I don't believe so. Wikipedia sucks, regardless, though lol. That I am sure of.

You are right. Wikipedia shouldn't always be trusted. That is why I don't hold it as a bible... But... How about this one...

I assure you, in person, you will find many more that look even more man made than the one I posted and the one in the OP. However, it's mother nature doing its best to trick you.

I got an explanation by a local when I was up there, but I didn't pay much attention because although it's fun to look at, I never questioned if it were made by aliens or any other nonsense...

Uhmmm most volcanoes are CAUSED BY SUBDUCTION, there are a few that are not, the notable examples of volcanoes not caused by subduction are the volcanoes of central sierra Nevada and western Nevada, and the hot spot volcanoes like Hawaii and yellowstone.

That single photo does hold resemblance, though I'm not fully convinced yet. The surroundings were too different. No aliens in my mind


Thanks anyway!
