Massive 'crack in the Earth' opens up suddenly in Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains
The immense crack, which appears to split a hilltop in half, was discovered by startled back country hunters.

A dramatic crack has suddenly formed in the foothills of Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains that measures an
impressive 750 yards long and 50 yards wide. It was discovered recently by surprised back country hunters
who travel frequently to the area in search of game.

First reported by SNS Outfitter & Guides, a hunting company, on their Facebook page, the mammoth chasm
appeared over the course of just a couple of weeks.

Just to add this, here's the explanation given in the article:

"Apparently, a wet spring lubricated across a cap rock. Then, a small spring on either side caused the
bottom to slide out. He estimated 15 to 20 million yards of movement."


An unnamed engineer was quoted in the article. 13.gif Just to throw that out there.

Quote:Seth Wittke, geological manager with the Wyoming Geological Survey in Laramie, explained the event in the Bighorn Mountains as simply a landslide.

“Without getting out there and looking at it, I can’t be positive, but from what I’ve seen on the Internet it looks like a slow-moving landslide,” Wittke told GrindTV in a phone interview.

Regarding the engineer’s explanation about a spring and lubrication, Wittke said, “A lot of landslides are caused by subsurface lubrication by ground moisture or water and things like that, or in this case, a spring.”

Wittke described it as a “fairly small event given the overall aspect of how big landslides can be” and said such an occurrence in the fall in Wyoming is “probably more rare” than it happening in the spring when you’d expect more moisture.

“But they do happen year round, so it’s not out of the ordinary,” Wittke said.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

You missed the other obvious clue. The land stretches as well as mountain builds. But we'll bring that up when the New Madrid begins it's phase coming up. After thirteen years of telling others, when food prices were low and climate change was hardly a known fact. I was ridiculed as a doomer. I was saying, all that we see today and some things I didn't know. Now nearly everybody is a doomer in one form or another. What's that? A trumpet? chuckle.gif

Good post that works as a good indicator of things to come.

You're such a doom ass.

Yup, it sucks when you try to warn people about coming calamity and they don't listen. Then, when the calamity hits you can't wave your finger and say I told ya so because they are in a bad way. I tried to warn my mother about the economic crash. She finally decided to ask her "financial adviser" but of course he told her not to worry and she left her retirement invested. She lost nearly everything. She would have retired years ago if she had listened to me.

Then again, who am I?

You're a person who has a channel open for knowing things are going in a certain direction. Sorry for your moms loss. Key indicators are now in the news. They act like road signs. Those in denial even though the writing is on the wall are more concerned losing their comfort zone. Can't face the pace. So to speak turn the channel, but yeah.

The future is uncertain, but the end is always near.

That is 1 massive crack, though.
