Oregon Vortex and House of Mystery!

This place has been on the travel wish list for ages...
And so we finally made the trek.  It was totally worth it!
The Oregon Vortex House of Mystery is totally awesome.
It's this little mining village near Gold Hill southern Oregon where the physics and optical illusions play tricks with your mind.  
A vortex is a spherical field of force, half above the ground and half below the ground... that creates a whirlpool forcefield of effects.
Such as this weird illusion of height transference...
Or this crazy sunken miner bunkhouse.
Check out these crazy leaning kids...
And this wacky standing broom!!
Whaaat??
I'm totally sold on Roadside Americana and the Oregon Vortex House of Mystery was Aces!  The golf ball rolling up the gutter, the 7-Up bottle rolling up the hill... it was crazy.  This place was even mentioned on the X-Files.  If it's good enough for Fox Mulder, it's good enough for me.
