On the historic Jackson Butte Mountain slope pictured here, for example. The remnants of enigmatic yet uniform formations bearing ancient art. Especially compelling, particularly when one considers the way this must have looked thousands of years ago.
- Ancient Amador
Butte Mountain in Jackson California. Iconic. Pyramid-like. Its the single most obvious eye-catcher in the Mother Lode.
We've got up-close photos as well as stunning drone video tours of the megalithic ruins on the most amazing topographical feature as well as breathtaking panoramic views from the top.
Nestled in the sparcely populated North-central part of Amador County CA, is Red Mule Ranch. We look at this location from the hilltops to the most hidden recesses which are replete with curiosities and puzzling evidence. Many different sites explored and pictured. Some unexpected possibilities are presented.
Amador county has this feature that sticks out like a neon light in a dark cave, but it's not viewable from public roads. It's a hidden part of Amador that seems almost like an extinct volcano, especially from above. Permission was obtained by our cameras and drones to explore this feature peak. Intrigueing up close and from the air as well..
Ancient California inhabitants were apparently prolific road builders, even deep into the mountains. Those ancient paths of Amador can still be found. Mostly on private property, they can be hopelessly inaccessable to humans, so much of what you can view here hasn't been seen even by locals who've lived in this area their whole lives..
Amador County is split by the old Highway 49 and there are many amazing things to see right from the road. Some of the best sights are featured here in photos and a full drone tour of the stretch of Hwy 49 that calls Amador home.
(Note: Most populated areas in Amador have individual drone tours on the Amador via drone page.)
One wasy to get a perspective of any place on Earth is with the many mapping aps now available from many sources. There are some parts of the areas we've focussed on that can only really be seen via satellite. Especially a particular baffling trait that can be noticed at a specific range and it can't possibly be credited to pareidolia...
As the page title would suggest, here are several presumably (wholly, or in part) original observations and theories that attempt to address some of the largest questions mankind has ever, never, or rarely considered. This is a page that presents much speculation, theory, and a healthy dose of conjecture...
Food for thought.
Could it be lens flare? Perhaps a freak weather event? Maybe swamp gas or weather balloon? There are ways to explain away many things that appear in photography, but on occasion, somewhere between the Sun and a camera lens, there may appear something that can safely be described as "anomalous" as our many photos and videos do attest.
Dragonfly the Drone is touring above and through the towns and sights in and around Amador. It's footage also has been
featured in a few interesting documentaries focused on the California Gold Rush and the many peoples that came through and left their footprints for future generations of space/time tourists.
An assortment of videos related to the topics found across this Ancient Amador website can be screened here. There are a fine assortment of expertly edited time-lapse videos as well as video shot during pivotal points of discovery and research conducted for this web site. Raw video that is not edited at all but provides a real perspective.
Encounters with unusual phenomena are categorically difficult to articulate, but we'll give it our best . Photo / video analysis and examples of cross-dimensional harmonic arrangement of regular matter (C.H.A.R.M.) can be found here. Ancient California Gold's opinion on just what can be seen here is carefully approached.
Not all experiences can be described adequately, even with photographs, even with video. Certainly not to the extent they can be deemed as "Evidence". Arguably, the best evidence is the only medium that stands the test of time... stone.

The 22 images of the High Arcana of the Tarot as described in Iamblichus's Egyptian Mysteries - An account of an Initiation are married to imagery from Ancient Amador's photo collection.
Over time, much art has been produced under the handle Persistent Organic Moss. This includes many videos as well as individual graphics and works of art which are created soley for use here. This page features some of the artistic efforts that have appeared on Ancient California Gold and it's prior incarnations, Ancient Amador, and Ancient Amador Gold. It also serves as a gallery for works that may be utilized at some point in the future.
