As you drive along the Golden Chain Highway (HWY 49), there are lots of lovely points of interest, but in Amador County, nothing but nothing stands out like a plasma jet in the night as much as Jackson's Butte Mountain. It is the only mountain that leaps off an otherwise foot-hilly terrain. Butte mountain stands amidst Amador's low hills like Optimus Prime commanding them as henchmen. It also helps that Butte mountain is in the form of a complex proto Mya-esque earth-covered pyramidal structure, which is why it's just so damned interesting to take in - even from a far distance. A huge radio antenna was mounted to the top of this amazing feature, which only adds to it's ubiquitous visibility. The thing is... if you've only seen Butte from HWY 49. on your way through Jackson, you (no doubt) thought it would be cool to check it out some day.... unfortunately that's not an option for a number of boring reasons. Suffice to say, your best bet is checking out the video below.
There is a mountain of things that could be said of this pointy, amazing ancient far flung outpost from God knows when, but a picture is worth a thousand of these word-things. This has more going for it, intrigue-wise, than the prospect of heading off of Devil's Tower in Wyoming with some out-of-town friends circa mid 70-s. We see so much here, and you might as well.
Ancient stones speak for themselves
The top of the Butte descends to a plateau that features some curious ruins that are comprised of a unique stone material. They don't seem or look like a naturally formed kind of stone... There is no sign of anything volcanic (i.e. caldera, lava, ash, etc.) on the mountain anywhere.
This outcropping is almost iconic in its appearance the instant one catches a glimpse of the artwork and decorations that have been there for ages, no doubt. Note the detail in white on the lower right of the frame.
This was noticeable and distinctive. It even seemed familiar.
Something about that stone at the top seemed familiar. It shares a very exact feature with the Fiji Island chain seen from space... and it shares this distinction with the Easter Island Moai sentinels. as we demonstrate with the slideshow on page: OBSERVATIONS ON CREATION
Looking down from the plateau, there is a Temple-like stone construction. There is little chance of that level of artistry randomly configuring itself from unaided natural processes. A blown up pic is below.
Again, these examples of art and architecture are impossible to successfully attribute to natural processes There is serious potential for linkage to known ancient Meso-American cultures as well. There seems to be no known record of such an occupation. Yet, this puzzle exists.
