I was told of a rock not too far from me that resembled a Native American face, appropriately named Profile Rock.  The stone face is found on Route 42 between Catawissa and Bloomsburg.  Unfortunately, it’s also located right at a bend in the road, so if you go looking for it, be careful not to get hit by cars; they’re quite fast here.

When I first found the rock, I wasn’t that impressed.  This is because I was looking at it from the wrong side.  But that’s not enough; you also have to be looking at it from the correct point.  If you ever played Arkham Asylum or Arkham City, think of the Riddler’s question mark puzzles.  So after some experimenting and avoiding speeding cars, I figured it out.

From the pulloff (and the ‘wrong’ side):

Now from the correct side, but wrong angle.  Kind of looks like a face, but not what I saw in other pictures:

Annnnnd got it:

So there.  A rock face.  But only if you look at it a certain way.

Vanderslice Cemetery

We found this on our way to the ghost town of Celestia. At first glance, this looks like a small cemetery next to a ravine and with only a handful of graves. Truth is, in 1906 the middle of the cemetery was washed away in a flood. There is a whole other area to it; you just have to cross the ditch. It’s not very deep but it is somewhat of a steep climb to the other side.
The graveyard is no longer in use, and if it weren’t for the sign along the road, I doubt anyone would even know it’s there.
