Strange geo-glyph discovered near Cheoah River in Graham County, NC
ERSI satellite imagery of Graham County, NC in the extreme western end of that state, has picked up a inexplicable footprint on the soil. It is located in the flood plain of Yellow Creek near its confluence with the Cheoah River. This geo-glyph is of the scale of those on the Nazca Plain in Peru. It appears to be either the footprint of a triangular European fort or an upside-down bat with the head no longer visible . . . but maybe not. This location was in the Province of Chiaha, where Juan Pardo built a fort. Note the separate rectangular footprint to the north of the wings, plus what appears to be radiating lines pointing to the southeast and southwest. Do you have any ideas about this strange structure, creature or symbol on the landscape, immediately south of the Great Smoky Mountains?
