The Mystery Spot


Moving right along on my California visit route. On the way to a friend who lives in San Luis Obispo, I stopped at the Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz. A fun place, even though it's really based on an optical illusion rather than 'strange gravitational or magnetic forces'. Waters flow uphill, balls roll upward, tall people become shorter while short ones appear taller...

And when the tour's over you get a free bumper sticker....

It is good you described what's happening on the mistery spot as I was at first looking at the man trying to figure out if he was taller or shorter but than discovered tiny water fall;)

I am wondering if the water tastes differently! lol
