Mysterious obelisk appears on Pine Hill • Atascadero News


Dozens of hikers flock to take photos with the spontaneous monument

In late November, a mysterious 9-foot obelisk appeared in Utah that sparked terror around the world as many pilgrims to see it in San Juan County.

The Utah Obelisk was planted illegally without cooperation with the Office of Land Management.

On Black Friday, he disappeared as mysteriously as he looked, leaving a triangular divo on the ground.

A similar monument appeared at the top of the Atascadero pine hill on Wednesday morning and provoked similar patronage. Dozens of local hikers made tours to the top of Fenyves to see the object.

The three-sided obelisk is made of stainless steel, 10 feet high and 18 inches wide. The object was welded together at each corner, fastening the side panels with rivets to a steel frame, probably inside. There were no welding marks on the top of the monument, it looks hollow from above and possibly from below.

Unlike his Utah brother, the Atascadero obelisk was not fixed to the ground and could be overturned with a firm thrust. Atascadero News estimates it weighs about £ 200.

The material looked like stainless steel, much like the hood above the stove in a commercial kitchen. The reflective material lends a mesmerizing light to the obelisk as the sun, shadow, and Santa Lucia Mountains converge on the vector, while the prism distributes the light from one of Atascadero’s highest points.

Dozens of hikers gathered to reflect on the subject, to discuss where it might come from and who might have created it.
Among those on the scene were questions about whether the obelisk is the same as disappearing from Utah. The Utah obelisk was reported to be 9 feet high and would be similar in height to the Atascadero object. However, the structure of the Atascadero obelisk seemed broader than the Utah version.

The obelisk frenzy has also reached Romania, with a more distressed specimen planted on Batcas Doamnei in Piatra Neamt.
There was no visible evidence of how the object got to the top of the mountain, but Ray Johnson, a daily hiker, said he wasn’t there on Tuesday.

The city of Atascadero has become aware of the object and there is no current information about the future of the monument. Since the obelisk is hundreds of pounds and not tied to the ground, it can fall if pushed, and The Atascadero News warns hikers when they are near the object.
