The Papoose Lake Primer
Why should anyone care about Papoose Lake? Aliens, of course!!
According to some, it's where our beloved government has stashed
all the extraterrestrial debris that has rained down upon our
planet in the last 50 years or so, the result of intergalactic
student drivers. There are even some folks who'll take the story
further and suggest that ET and his buddies themselves have taken
up residence there (talk about a lousy neighborhood!). Are these
people nuts?! Are they just mislead? Or are they right? (or some
very strange combination of all three!)
What I'm going to do is lay out all the stories I'm aware of regarding
Papoose Lake, covering both sides of the issue. As you'll see,
there are points to be made for either case, some points stronger
than others. Whichever side you come down on, you need to be aware
of and explain these opposing points.

Peeping at Papoose: You say you have too much free time
on your hands? You lack a life? Well then, this is for you, a
lurker's guide to observational opportunities of the Papoose area.
Skulk to your heart's content.
- The Pros and Cons of a saucer facility at Papoose Lake. A
very schizophrenic look at both sides of the argument. Make up
your own damn minds! Not exhaustive, but a start.
- Map of Papoose Lake and Groom area: (93k
jpg) This map is a general location map to give you a feel for
the area. It's been compiled from a number of public sources,
including various public land records, USGS maps, aerial photos,
satellite photos, and the
"Cammo Dude Handbook".
- Rendered aerial view of Papoose Lake: (55k
jpg) I got some new software, Vistapro, so indulge me. This is
a quicky rendering it spit out (and I'm still climbing the learning
curve!) based upon a USGS digital elevation model. It's reasonably
accurate, pretty, but not perfect. Background mountains aren't shown.
