This Strange Phenomenon In South Carolina Is Too Weird For Words

South Carolina’s intense past occasionally spurs some strange and unexplainable events. Ghosts, paranormal activity and a swamp man are among the odd things that have been reported in the Palmetto State.

But we’re about to show you something you may not have known existed in South Carolina. Take a look at this photo below of the Tyger River Bridge near Union, South Carolina.

According to Wikipedia a “mystery hill,” also known as a “magnetic hill” or a “gravity hill,” is a road where the surroundings are laid out in such a way that a slight downhill slope appears as an uphill slope. In other words, it’s a bit of an optical illusion.

Unfortunately, no one has ever posted video of this gravity hill “in action,” but here’s an example of one in Pennsylvania. As you can see, it’s very bizarre.

Have you visited the gravity hill in South Carolina? Or do you know of other optical illusions in the Palmetto State? Let us know about either in the comments below or on Facebook.
