local newspaper in the small town of Atascadero, on the central California coast, reported that the silvery column had been found atop Pine mountain where dozens of local hikers made the trip to view it – and post their pictures on the internet.
“The three-sided obelisk appeared to be made of stainless steel, 10-feet tall and 18 inches wide. The object was welded together at each corner, with rivets attaching the side panels to a likely steel frame inside,” the Atascadero News reported.
Unlike its the New York Times.
The Atascadero monolith is not the first copycat of the Utah original. Amid mounting international attention of the mystery, a similar structure was reportedly found in the mountains of Romania.
