Los Angeles.- A group of hikers discovered a metallic monolith on a mountain route on the central coast of California, in the United States, two weeks after a similar structure was found in the Utah desert and another with similar characteristics was found in Romania.
This was reported on Thursday by the local network KKFX, affiliated with Fox television in San Luis Obispo, a city located in the center of the coastal region of California.
The stainless steel structure, about eight feet high according to the images distributed by that local television, was found at the peak of the Pine Mountain Loop hiking trail, in the Californian town of Atascadero.
One of the hikersDennis Swanson told KKFX that he was « pretty sure » that the monolith was not there the day before.
The appearance of this monolith occurs after a very similar one was found by surprise from a helicopter in mid-November in a remote and desert area of the state of Utah, which was removed at the end of the same week.
According to information from local media, a group of four environmental activists removed the monolith from that area because its appearance caught the attention of hundreds of people who drove through the desert those days in search of that structure.
During these last weeks another monolith with a triangular base was also found on the Batca Doamnei hill, located in the Romanian city of Piatra Neamt, in the northeast of the country.
On that occasion, the monolith was also removed, although it is unknown so far who did it.
