May 7th ~ Gold Hill, Oregon
It was time to do a little backtracking, as we left the Oregon Coast and headed back inland toward Medford. Thankfully the sun was out in full force as we once again passed by one of my favorite coastline spots at Myers Beach.
Most of today was simply transitional, but we did have one surprise up our sleeves with a stop at the House of Mystery.
This short video may help explain a little more about this mysterious phenomenon:
I thought many of the “tricks” were simply optical illusions, but even when a level was placed on a platform to show that was not true, I remained mystified. In one moment I could look almost eye level with Laura, and the next instance after switching places, I would seem to tower over her.
Michael and Laura did this same experiment at another location at the site with similar results. Again the platform was checked with a level and the bubble showed right in the middle.
It was fun and funny to spend an hour here on a tour and experience the oddities. Golf balls and a soda bottle appeared to roll uphill. With uneven flooring we stood at odd angles.
I still don’t know what I think about this place, so it will just have to remain a “mystery” for now.
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am thankful that I can keep an open mind and remain open to the unknown. Whatever the reality is, the stopover was a nice break from our drive and left us all scratching our heads.
