This Strange Phenomenon In Alaska Is Too Weird For Words
There is a road in Alaska that will, for a split second, make you question your sanity. Just right outside of Anchorage, on Upper Huffman Road, is a hill that defies gravity and blows minds. All you have to do to experience the magic of this Gravity Hill is pull your vehicle up to the base of the hill, put it in neutral, take your foot off the brake, and, believe it or not, you’ll slowly begin to coast uphill. We’re not talking at a snails pace either, you can reach up to 12 mph even on the ice and snow!
Check out the video if you don’t believe me. Or better yet, get in your rig and drive to Upper Huffman Road to try it out for yourself.
