Oh yeah, a few more pics from the trip. (Original Post) OldBaldy1701E Sep 27 OP
Roswell, NM? I have no idea where you're going. sinkingfeeling Sep 27 #1
That is a good guess, but I am afraid not. I hope to visit NM one day... (n/t) OldBaldy1701E Sep 28 #7
The Gates of Hell? rsdsharp Sep 27 #2
No, but also a good guess. (m/t) OldBaldy1701E Sep 28 #8
Mothman? Is that West Virginia? LoisB Sep 27 #3
And we have a winner! OldBaldy1701E Sep 28 #6
Interesting. I wonder what they really saw? LoisB Sep 28 #11
I have no idea! Great photos, though. nt CaliforniaPeggy Sep 28 #4
Thank you Peggy! It is a bit unnerving even in the daytime, isn't it? (n/t) OldBaldy1701E Sep 28 #9
It sure is! Yikes. nt CaliforniaPeggy Sep 28 #12

I look forward to learning the answer, and also to finding out what that (somewhat creepy) statue is meant to represent.

The photos are great, bow!

As stated above, this is the Mothman, the creature that supposedly terrorized the area of Point Pleasant and supposedly appeared to signal the collapse of the Silver Bridge, which was a major disaster in Point Pleasant. The story always intrigued me as a child and I was thrilled to be able to visit the town and check out the statue.

No telling what those folks actually saw, but it makes a great yarn!
