Just as a mysterious monolith in a remote part of Utah captured the imagination of social media users worldwide, a new monolith is garnering similar attention in central California.
This one’s in San Luis Obispo County, at the top of the Pine Mountain loop in Atascadero’s Stadium Park. As reported by the San Luis Obispo Tribune, the "sudden appearance of a metallic monolith on a California hillside" caught many by surprise.
Like the Utah monolith, no one is sure where this one came from either.
Atascadero Land Preservation Society President Mike Orvis told the paper "his organization does not have any information on the monolith, including when it appeared or who is responsible for erecting it."
The city is aware of the monolith and is similarly stumped.
