So some friends and I were hiking the Clackamas River in Oregon.
First thing we heard a weird howling noise, we hiked on and came
upon a dirt hill they used to mine I think. That's when we saw this cave.
We threw rocks at it first to scare away anything.
We walked up to it slowly and it smelled weird. I can't
describe the smell but it was bad, not like death or anything
goofy like that. When we got up to it, it was frozen on the inside.
The walls of the cave were covered in ice. It was cloudy out but still
68 -70 degrees WTF!!!
The pic was me going in and turning around and looking at the entrance.
I had enough sense to make video. I made a webm out of it
but it didn't turn out to good also it was dark inside. My camera
flash doesn't come on when shooting. Still you can see the ice
walls a little. We heard the howl noise again and got out
could be radioactive or something op.
go to the hospital if you start feeling really bad and ask for a radiation check. if they ask why you were possibly exposed just tell them you were hiking and found a weird material and touched it.
or better yet get a geiger counter and go back there.
In all, 63 pesticide compounds: 33 herbicides, 15 insecticides, 6 fungicides, and 9 pesticide degradates were detected in samples collected during storm and nonstorm conditions. Fifty-seven pesticides or degradates were detected in the tributaries (mostly during storms), whereas fewer compounds (26) were detected in samples of source water from the lower mainstem Clackamas River, with fewest (15) occurring in drinking water. ~ Wikipedia
Could be a frozen collection of waste.
>Do you think its natural?
I don't see how it could be. It's to hot out and I'd think
it would melt.
>could be radioactive or something op.
I hope not, unless I get super powers or something.
that cave looks really beautiful! I wish we had cool caves like that around here.
strange that the entrance and everything in the cave looks so smooth, like it was made. I would have guessed it was made by water, but the entrance is to high and it would not have this step at the entrance... strange.
how far did it go in?
>how far did it go in?
I'm not sure. It was wet and creepy. Also the only light I
had was camera flash so I didn't go in to far.
No, my friend described it as a leaf pile that's been
sitting and you dig down into it.
Actually in that part of Oregon you have to watch out for Windego. They are not "freindly"(passive) like Sasquatch are. Its probably a good thing you got out of there. If you see a large thing with an old mans face.. Shoot or run.
Some Sasquatch have been getting more hostile recently. They will warn you by throwing smaller things at first, like pinecone. But uhh.. Next comes the bolders and 12 foot long spears.
The howling noise is likely just the wind blowing over the entrance. Have you never blown over a bottle half filled with water? If you actually took the photos in I'm sure it would at least be a story on the news. If the government gets involves then something 2spooky is going on
Its actually somewhat common for caves to have ice in them year round, especially if the entrance is flat on the ground like that.
>cave is on ground
>snow builds up
>snow stays in pitch darkness underground and keeps itself cool
>condenses over a few months and turns blue
I bet it was nice and cool in there too.
you could have found permafrost. it's unlikely but it's harder to melt then ice.
the Lightning thing seem more then likely though.
if it was radioactive. it'd give off heat. I don't think it would look like ice.
you should find the coordinates and tell some earth science students at the local college to check it out for you. they'd love finding shit like that
It’s a similar concept, just on a smaller scale. The holes in Siberia are most likely a hydrolaccolith, a mound of soil covered ice – it’s basic erosion; the ice beneath slowly melts, creating a cavity, and then without support, the roof of soil or rock collapses. Nothing spoopy, but a really cool find.
Hi, I study glaciology and earth science.
This looks really, really weird. The ice is much too clear to be explained by a water pocket freezing over and thawing - the ice would be mixed with rocks and earth eroding and mixing with the water before the freezing occurs. Furthermore, the ice on the roof of the cave is still there, while the bottom seems to have thawed out... If this was ice formed during the winter, the thawing would naturally start from the top due to the warmth radiating downwards from the ground.
Are you sure it was ice and not some kind of glass? Could you please go back and get some more footage?
>Are you sure it was ice and not some kind of glass?
Absolutely 100% positive. It was ice, no question.
>Could you please go back and get some more footage?
I'm not going back.
Could you contact some scientists to go look at it? This will be the 4th one found so far. It sucks that /x/ isn't on this one as crazy as they were on the siberian ones, seeing as this is first hand.
Can you also let >>14970713 know where it's at? You know, ;let someone else search is since you won't/
Not unfamiliar no? Another 2 holes were discovered in Russia, scientists have yet to come up with an explanation
It's happening just like in War of the worlds, they've been in the underground all the time.
>Clackamas River in Oregon
>Cave of ice
If you didn't have the video I'd say that you're making it up. I'm not sure what to think, but I don't think a little howling would have scared me away until I figured out what the hell made the hole.
This OP, I'm feeling better and decided I'm going back. Because of the howling thing I'm bringing a gun and some pepper spray. I'm going to try and get better pictures to prove it isn't stupid glass.
Take me with you, you're gonna need some extra firepower.
Let's just wait....
is /x/ turning into r/nosleep? whats wrong with you people? its a hole with some frozen water in it. oo wendigo oo radiation oo too scared to go back. man if i saw that i wouldnt care if it was howling or speaking to me id be in the depths of it with a gopro and would provide some actual entertainment. op post the location on gmaps so somebody thats not RPing can go check it out, im too far from oregon
You can see a drip at the low point in this.
This was an end to one of the tunnels. When the flash went off I could have swore I saw something on the floor. I forgot my flashlight
Be objective because I'm not sure either but when I looked at the pics just now this kinda looks like a bone.
>TFW everyone is flipping shit over a small glacier
Hey op, if you can, you should leave something like a letter or maybe a picture or something in the cave. It would be le epiclawlz trollz if some other anon found this same cave, found what you'd left, and made a thread on /x/ about.
Cold traps - Certain cave configurations allow seasonal convection to import cold air from the surface in winter, but not warm air in summer. A typical example is an underground chamber located below a single entrance. In winter, cold dense air settles into the cave, displacing any warmer air which rises and exits the cave. In summer, the cold cave air remains in place as the relatively warm surface air is lighter and cannot enter. The cave will only exchange air when the surface air is cooler than the cave air. Some cold traps may ensnare surface snow and shade it from the summer sun’s rays, which may further contribute to the colder cave temperature.
It's an ice cave. You should draw pentagrams and inverted crosses everywhere and start a local legend of it.
The cave is in the middle of a dirt/rocky hill. The floor of the cave is dirt and the roof is ice. You do step down about a foot or so at the entrance but then it goes up. Also Oregon is fairly warm right now and the inside was warm. But oh well, don't listen to me cause I was there.
Geologyfag here. How high up were you? Looks to me like you found a collapsed pingo.
A pingo is basically a hill made out of ice with frozen chunks of rock.
When the ice melts, the structure collapses, leaving behind a hole. I would crack open my geomorphology textbook, but I'm too cozy in bed to get it, so here's a link to the wikipedia article:
"These pingos are often oval or oblong shaped. It is still not entirely understood why open system or hydraulic pingos normally occur in unglaciated terrain."
Also, groundwater is pretty cold, and doesn't change much between seasons. Even here in North Carolina, I have a spring in my backyard that pumps out water at around 45 degrees f, even in the summer.
I'm at around see level and I think this may have been a couple of hundred feet in elevation. Also I don't think we have permafrost in Oregon.
Yes, I couldn't see except for the enrance light and camera flash.
Save yourself the medical bill and dont do this OP. Even if it was radioactive you would have had to have sat in that hole for an entire day for you to even have a chance of radiation poisoning.
No. But there sort of looked like a game trail leading up to it and I set a camera out today hoping to get pics of what was howling.
Okay I have a question, me and a buddy were going through a park in a suburb town outside of Portland Oregon, we were both completely sober and this was on the last Friday the 13th on the full moon. We were on the paved trail and as we were passing by a forest part of the park there were ducks quaking and clucking freaking out defiently something attacking them. As we were passing by the forest we heard a few strange creepy noises in the dark forest (this was a bit past midnight) the ducks quietened down and then a very loud scream/growl that all we could describe would be demonic and sounded more so that it came from a person than a animal came from the forest. There are only small animals in this park and this wasn't a small normal creature, more aggressive then a bear growl and like I said very very demonic and human sounding. We picked up pace basically running and the thing came out of the forest, crossed the paved track, and stalked us to our side through a tall grass field for a few hundred feet then we heard no more. Its both freaked us the fuck out and have no idea what the hell it was, could it had been this windigo thing? Something else? I'd like find out wtf it could had been it was extremely born chilling we both thought we were going be killed by who know what.
Take a basic reading and comprehension class. It said a typical cold trap was an underground chamber located below the entrance. This didn't have that.
It is 85 degrees out right now and expected to get hotter. Perfect environment for an ice cave at sea level located next to a river...
before I forget, if you decide to go adventuring down into the hole, I would safely fasten a big rope outside because it would suck to fall and slide down into a crevasse and not be able to get out (dying of dehydration, alone in the dark).
plus, weapons for howling monster, just in case.
i dont know why you guys are flipping shit about glacier caves, there natural occurances and happen all the time, i remember in man vs. wild, they showed some in alaska. theres nothing spoopy about them.
Are you brain damaged? The hole is the entrance, and the chamber is the cave. Done in one.
The cave IS a chamber below the entrance. What, are you expecting it to be a multi-story cave apartment or something?
There is literally no way to make it clearer to you.
So here is a clue to where this is at. The part circled in red is visible from the highway.
Wow OP is like that movie where the looser boy and the nigger kid and His cousin or something get telekinetic super powers and the looser boy says " I will be the alpha dragon" and commits several cartoon villian mistakes, OP if you get super powers remember this rule: Ponies aren't real they cant be your girlfriend.
So this one really creeped me out when I got back. My camera had water drops on the lens, you can clearly see them. But what came out from next to me and went inside at 10 seconds in? Is that an orb?
I live in Coos Bay. I might swing up there and have a look for myself. Any hints on where exactly the holes are at?
I had a phone in my backpack, not mirror.
Camera stayed still, no watch.
I'm still, camera still, I was alone.
>giving out anything remotely doxing on 4chan
Can you? you dumb faggot.
That was just some random taking a guess where it was you colossal dick.
>SOMEBODY TELL ME WHERE THE HOLE IS!!! SOMEONE GIVE ME BUS FARE SO I CAN GET THERE!!! WWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Get off your ass and look.
Also is this one of you guys? So close, yet so far.
It's a reflection from your watch, you or your buddy made it.
I was willing to believe you were genuinely curious about the thing you found in the woods but that webm and the single fucking bone pretty much confirm you're an attention whore.
Animals or humans don't leave bones in their dwelling, if it was their trash heap there would be more than one there would be a small pile, that bone was intentionally placed there to draw attention.
