Most People Have Never Heard The Eerie Legend Of Idaho's Bermuda Triangle
In the world of unexplained disappearances, spooky instances of lost communication, and unnatural fatalities, the Bermuda Triangle – also sometimes referred to as the Devil’s Triangle – is a loosely-defined region with a reputation that defies all reason. You won’t find it on any official map and you won’t know when you cross the line, but according to some people, the Bermuda Triangle is a very real, tangible place where dozen of ships, planes, and people have disappeared without explanation. But according to local lore, Idaho has its own mystery triangle… and few people know it exists.
Tucked away in east Idaho, near the Wyoming border and on the edge of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest...
Rumor has it that dozens of cars have been involved in mysterious "accidents" on the lonely stretch of road between Conda and Caribou National Forest Road.
Wanda Peavey (1994) claimed a band of apparitions caused her to swerve off the road. David Massett (1989) stated that he felt his car sliding as though on ice, despite driving in the middle of summer.
Although largely unfounded, there are nevertheless dozens of reports of strange apparitions and unexplained forces at work moving vehicles off the road.
When you dig deeper into the incidents, they're much less mysterious. Either the vehicles were on the road at night, when unexpected animals and obstacles could appear, or the mysterious "forces" could not be verified.
If the stories are true, the leading theory is that three magnetic anamolies contribute to the Idaho Bermuda Triangle:
The unique magnetic forces of nearby Yellowstone, the spiritual forces of former Native American residents in the region, and the seismic forces of Idaho's underground geology at work.
The three are thought to converge in this one spot, but no data records exist to confirm or refute the theory.
But all in all, Idaho's Bermuda Triangle seems to be the product of multiple conflicting sources.
Whether fact, fiction, or something else entirely - Bigfoot, for instance (of whom the vast majority of sightings have been in Idaho's Panhandle) - perhaps this is just one rumor that was taken out of context. Does Idaho's Bermuda Triangle lie elsewhere, then?
What do you think – local legend, or real possibility? Have you ever heard any stories about this area?
While this story may be all hype, one nearby anomaly is very real:
Idaho’s Zone of Death.
