In part two of my report from Easter Island I visit a stone platform bearing remarkable similarities to several Incan sites found in Peru. I also travel to the largest ahu on the island and begin my investigation of the volcanic crater from which most of the mysterious statues on the island were carved.

Known in ancient times as Te Pito o te Henua (the Navel of the World), the island is most famous for its massive statues recognized throughout the world. But a plethora of other enigmas have intrigued researchers as well.

Members Newsletter number 10 covers my travels through Peru. After a brief stop in Lima I took a bus to the small town of Ica and visited a museum with an amazing exhibit on deformed and extrememely enlongated skulls. Ica is also the home of the Cabrerra Museum housing over 11,000 supposedly ancient stones with seemingly impossible carvings on them. The images depicted include complex medical procedures and scientific advances as well as foreign animals such as kangaroos and even dinosaurs. From Ica I flew over the famous Nazca lines and then headed to Cuzco a city built atop the precision stone carving of the Inca.

Spread out amongst the dense jungles of Cambodia hide the remains of an ancient and grand civilization know as Angkor. While most visitors focus on the beauty of the city’s towering temples, another story lies in the intricate stone carvings adorning the buildings. These inscriptions depict strange mythological creatures including giant snakes, ape-men and even a dinosaur.

Accompanying Members Newsletter number nine, this photo gallery covers my travels across the Yucatan. My first stop was a visit to Uxmal with its intricate carvings and four mysterious buildings known collectively as the Nunnery. Next I traveled to Chichen Itza with its massive pyramid and its astronomical observatory known as the Caracol. South of Cancun I visited the city of Tulum with its many diminutive buildings leading some to hypothesize that the city was once inhabited by a race of dwarves. Then I flew to Guatemala to visit the ancient city of Tikal with its strange similarities to the architecture of India and Southeast Asia.

Located in Acambaro, the Waldemar Julsred Museum is one of the weirdest museums you'll ever see. Housed within it are a small sample of the over 32,000 artifacts Julsred collected in his lifetime. Dated as being approximately 4000 years old the artifacts appear to depict a number of fantastic animals, many of which resemble dinosaurs.

Cuilcuilco was famous many years ago because the pyramid mound itself was dated as being about 2000 years old. However, the pyramid is covered in lava that was dated as being about 8000 years old.

Teotihuacan, one of the most impressive ancient sites in the world, is most famous for its two enormous pyramids, the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun. The Pyramid of the Sun contains a number of anomalous features such as a secretive underground tunnel and several similarities with the Great Pyramid at Giza such as the apparent precocious inclusion of the number Pi.

The Museo Nacional de Antropologia is the largest and most impressive museum in Mexico and can probably hold its own against any in the world. Highlights of the museum include a reconstruction of the tomb of Pakal from Palenque as well as a collection of inscribed bricks from Comalcalco and several large stone Olmec heads from La Venta. A large Atlantean statue from Tula holds a strange object in its hand that Eric Von Danikken likened to a laser gun.

Deep within China near the ancient capitol of Xi'an lies a series of pyramid mounds virtually unknown outside the country. Entwined with the reality of these remote tombs, lies a legend of an even greater pyramid seldom seen; a pyramid of such size and grandeur as to put all the other pyramids of the world to shame. This is the legend of the white pyramid of China.

America's West Coast is full of interesting and unexplained sites. In Part 1 of this report I recounted the first half of my journey from Los Angeles to Vancouver and back. Along the way, my friend Eric and I stopped at fascinating sites like the Berkley Mystery Walls, Lava Beds National Monument and a Stonehenge replica. On the way back we visited just as many mysterious places including the Santa Cruz Mystery Spot, Gingko Petrified Forest and many examples of ancient rock art.

The western United States is home to many interesting and unexplained places. On a recent trip to Canada, instead of flying, I decided to travel by car and investigate some of the more unusual sites found along the coast. Along the three-day, 1300-mile drive from Los Angeles to Vancouver I would explore deserted caves, uncover ancient artwork and even make an unexpected stop at Stonehenge.

Nehalem is the site of a series of mysteries so entwined, it’s hard to separate fact from fiction. Clatsop Indian legends tell of a “winged canoe” that dispatched a team of men who buried a chest, presumably filled with treasure, and marked the spot with an inscribed rock.
