I took my son and his friend to the Blue Hole on
Labor Day and found some interesting things. First,
we found out that the bottom of the Blue Hole, at least around the edges, is like quicksand. My son made this discovery purely by accident when he got too close to the edge, maybe not as much of an accident as we thought!
Later, as we walked the edge of the Blue Hole, we found
several bones, probably just deer bones, or so we told
ourselves. They were fairly large, and there were plenty
of them! Maybe they were too close to the edge too!
From the far side of the Blue Hole, we noticed that you
cannot see the bottom, is it possibly true that it is
bottomless? We weren't willing to find out!
While we were walking the surroundings, a strange thing
happened, all of our bikes crashed to the ground! Nobody
else was there, at least not that we could see, and the
bikes were far enough apart that they could not have
possibly knocked each other over. Very strange indeed!
After that, we were a little anxious to leave, so we did!
As we did, we noticed a deer skull of a hanging
in a tree at the trail that leads to the Blue Hole.
Another strange discovery!
As we exited the trail onto the road we saw several large
bags on the ground. We wondered what was in them, but were
too freaked out to even approach them! With all the stories
and legends of the Blue Hole, we didn't want to find out!
We never did find the building that was talked about, but
we did find the remains of what we think was that building.
There were bricks, wood and other building materials
scattered about a 40ft area! Maybe the Jersey Devil
realized the traps that used to be inside were for him!
