Mystery Hill, Irish Hills, MI

So, I'm supposed to have a post related to "Ireland, Irish, Wearin O' the Green, etc" because it's St. Patrick's Day this weekend.  But I don't have any St. Patrick's Day cards, so I'm reduced to posting this card for the Mystery Hill roadside attraction in IRISH HILLS, Michigan.  

Close enough.

At Mystery Hill, according to their website, "See many astonishing things that seem to defy the laws of nature. Here the law of gravity seems to have gone berserk and your sense of balance is entirely upset. Many theories have been offered such as earthquakes, magnetized mineral deposits, fallen meteorites, deflections of gravitational force and many others."  Of course, the actual theory is that the site is an optical illusion, but suspend your disbelief and enjoy!  And while you're there, visit the gift shop, where "unique rocks can be purchased by the bag."

For 12 minutes that you'll never get back, see this video tour of the place, half in English and half in Hindi, by a big fan.  It's worth viewing for the astounding enthusiasm of the tour guide alone.

I never knew there were places like that until I started noticing postcards from various mystery spots. They are still a mystery to me.

I LOVE this post!!! LOL How great. There is a place near here that is called the Oregon Vortex which has similar phenomena. lol

Have a great weekend and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
