I flew over west Texas around 1pm today, 34,000 feet over booming places like Monahans and Wickett, on the way back from a (very fast) trip from San Diego to Tampa. While passing over I saw some lines I had never noticed before.
While no-one will ever confuse these with the Nazca lines, they were strange. Oil rigs? Homesteads? If the latter, people seemingy scraped themselves a dirt lot. Wouldn’t they be better off leaving the native scrub in place rather than living on dirt?
