Strangest Things Found in the Middle of Nowhere

  • Published on Oct 19, 2018
  • The earth is a large and mysterious place and the more we search, the random things we may uncover made by mother nature. Humans have left their mark in isolated places, assuming that no one may ever see it again. Until now. From random villages left behind to become dust in the wind, waterfalls where you might least expect it, here are strange things found in the middle of nowhere.

    14. Giant Hand of the Desert
    It almost appears as though a giant zombie is rising from the ground in the middle of the atacama desert in Chile. Located in one of the driest places in the world, it features a hand popping up in the middle of nowhere. This was built in the early 1980’s and apparently hands rising from the desert was an actual obsession from the sculptor. Luckily, it's not a giant zombie that was buried and is coming back to life. This is located near the Chilean town of Anto-fa-gasta and it measures 36 feet high from the ground. Dry desert places are already pretty creepy by themselves, but then when you add a zombie hand to the mix, you might start to have nightmares.

    13. Wav An Namus
    Libya is a fairly large country in Africa that appears to be the same color for miles and miles. But from aerial view, you’ll notice a large black dot that seems to stand out! This is Waw an Namus! It’s an oasis that formed in the middle of a volcanic crater and the change in color of the sand is from an extinct volcano that once spew lava in this area. It’s name is translated to Oasis of Mosquitos due to large amount of mosquitos here and it was unknown outside of Africa until the late 19th century, when a French soldier was kept prisoner here. It’s served as an important watering hole for caravans trying to make it across the vast Saharan desert and it kind of stands out if you’re in the area.

    12. UTA Flight Memorial
    A shocking plane crash took place by a French airline which was attacked by terrorists while flying over africa in 1989. The plane was flying to Paris, France from brazzaville in the congo when an unexpected event took place. In order to show respect to those who perished, a memorial that can be seen from above was placed on the location of the crash. The desert sands have covered up much of the memorial since then and you get an idea how isolated any survivor must have been. There are also 170 Broken mirrors and each one represents a victim of the hijacking
    10. Liza-cough Pentagram
    Located in Kazakhstan, not too far from the russian border is where you’d find this mysterious pentagram in the middle of nowhere. An isolated region surrounded by a lake is where you’ll find this mysterious symbol which is sacred to paganism, witches, and other secret societies. You could probably only tell what it was if you were looking down at it from a plane from above. The 5 sides of the star represent the 5 elements of earth, air, water, space and fire. It doesn’t really seem like there are any roads ready. Rumor has it, that it was built by a group of summer campers from a nearby camp who may have had a thing for satan
    9. Fort Boyard
    Located in the western part of france off the coast of the city known as Rochefort stands an extremely isolated fortress which was built in the 17th century and later upgraded by Napoleon. It was meant to protect the harbor and the nearby, Ile d’aix to the northwest. Enemy ships however would simply sail around it and avoid making contact, essentially making it useless. Walls of the tower measure up to 60 feet high and capable of garrisoning 250 men. Although it’s close to some cities, you really don’t see this kind of thing too often in the middle of the ocean.

    The majority of the nuclear craters in the Nevada nuclear test site, were made by underground nuclear detonation. The craters were formed when the ground, above the detonation site, collapses into the cavity, created by the underground detonation.

    So since when did places in the middle of nowhere or not close to big cities become creepy? Some people spend a lifetime trying to find a place in the middle of nowhere to live! Otherwise how come each of these places has a population of at least one?

    They may rarely punish their citizens for choosing not to own a gun, but their loose mandates are more about making a statement than enforcing a law.
    1. Kennesaw, Georgia
    Kennesaw has the most well-known gun mandate in the country. In 1982, a law was passed requiring heads of households to own at least one firearm.
    Other cities have used Kennesaw as an example for gun mandates
    2. Nelson, Georgia
    Nelson unanimously passed an ordinance making gun ownership mandatory in 2013.
    3. Nucla, Colorado
    Nucla became the first city to mandate gun ownership in Colorado.
    With just around 700 people, Nucla passed what they call the "Home Protection Ordinance" in 2013, but does not actually enforce it.

    4. Gun Barrel City, Texas
    Gun Barrel got its fitting name as a safe haven for outlaws like Bonnie and Clyde during the Prohibition era.
    The city's motto is "We shoot straight with you."
    5. Virgin, Utah
    In 2000, the city council passed an ordinance making firearm ownership mandatory. The mayor at the time encouraged this move because most citizens had already owned guns.
