UNDER CONSTRUCTION

08/08/2018 NOW WORKING ON THE STAR HOLES.

My experience includes 10 years researching, examining, photographing, mapping, walking, flying, sampling and testing the California stone lines and associated structures.

Dave Cuneo and I spent over a year mapping 800+ miles of California’s stone lines in Google Earth. These maps disclosed a huge amount of new information about the stone lines.

Many people are aware of the famous The East Bay Walls, in the Oakland Hills near San Francisco Bay.  The present remnants of the East Bay Walls make up only a small portion of the stone lines in California.  This said the East Bay Walls are still spectacular. 

There is another important difference between the East Bay Walls and most of the other clusters of lines - most East Bay Walls are made of limestone where as most of the other clusters are made of igneous rock. 

Chemical weathering from rain and air affects limestone, it has little or no effect on igneous rock such as andesite that is commonly used in the Shasta and Sutter clusters.  The limestone rock surface is far more weathered and has far less detail remaining than the andesite.

There are lesser known but much larger and better preserved stone line clusters in rural Northern California and along the base of the Sierra Mountains in Central California.  My efforts were concentrated on the Shasta Valley cluster (200 miles+) and the Sutter Buttes cluster (130 miles+) the two largest and best preserved stone line clusters in California. These clusters containing over 40% of all the mapped lines.

Here are just a few of the things the map combined with Google imagery discloses:

These rock formations were art.  Once brilliantly colored and shiny the millinea  have turned them dull, weathered, worn and often hidden by all manner of trees, plants, mosses and lichens. They created images and told stories about man, gods, animals and life.  Even today bits of these stories can be found in time lapse photography.

Cheers,

Some items fit in both categories.

THE STONE LINES:

The California Stone Line Inventory contains maps of all stone line clusters and over 800 miles of California's stone lines.

Construction ongoing for Dragon Rocks and South Buttes

MIMA MOUNDS:

In the Shasta Valley the Weed Mima Mound Field is known to have been decorated with stones, some of these stones weighing tons.
