Description:
Water running uphill. Disorienting natural optical illusions. Unexplained violations of the laws of physics mark these odd geographic locations where gravity is just a guideline and nothing is what it seems. It's physics gone wild.
Expanded Description:
They're called gravity hills, magnetic hills, mystery spots, and vortexes. Whether it's a man-made attraction, a naturally-occuring illusion, or an unexplained other-worldy phenomenon, it can be extremely disorienting to experience these unnatural geographical and artificial oddities.
They are roadside attractions like the Oregon Vortex and the Santa Cruz Mystery Spot. They are the scattered locally-known places places where automobiles roll uphill when left in neutral.
It's the intersection of illusion and physics where almost anything can happen.
