table of contents
IS THERE AN OLD TOWN LOST IN THE GRAND CANYON?
The answer is yes. The Grand Canyon looks back on thousands of years of history. Some of them are never seen by explorers. A part of it is traversed daily by hikers and adventurers and remains unrecognized. But what about the lost history that was deliberately hidden from us? Not necessarily hidden to protect historic sites, but to hide history because it will rewrite the history we have all learned. It is possible? Could there be an underground Egyptian city in the Grand Canyon? Let's dive into history.
WHEN WILL GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK OPEN?
There is no doubt that Theodore Roosevelt loved the Grand Canyon area. He visited the area of present-day Lake Powell and the Grand Canyon several times to explore and admire its beauty. In 1908 he declared the Grand Canyon a national monument and in 1919 it was given the status of a Grand Canyon National Park.
Now pay close attention to the dates I mentioned above because I think they are crucial to the story I'm about to mention. There is a possibility that this is one of the greatest known cover-ups of the 1920s.acentury in the United States. I'll tell you the story, it's up to you to decide how you feel about it.
BECOME PART OF THIS ADVENTURE
THE STORY OF EXPLORATION IN THE GRAND CANYON BEGINS
In the early 1900s, a man named Mr. Kinkaid, an archaeologist at the Smithsonian Institution, was commissioned to explore the western states. His journey consisted of multiple locations, but one location may have changed the way we think about the Grand Canyon and our governmental organizations that research history. He began his journey in Green River, Utah, on the Colorado River, through what is known asUtah Canyon land🇧🇷 He had a partner and a wooden boat. His plans were to travel down the Colorado River to Yuma to document this unknown and unexplored area.
In 1907 there were no man-made structures like the Lake Powell Dam. Nothing but nature itself stopped them. Which was printed in the Arizona Gazette on April 5tha, 1909 I found very interesting.
The Gazette report went on to talk about a lost city that it discovered after traversing the current Lake Powell Dam area. I will cite the Arizona Gazette News Paper and some links where you can find more information.
Discovery of the Lost City in the Grand Canyon
Brought the latest news on the progress of the exploration of what is now considered by scientists to be not only the oldest archaeological discovery in the United States, but one of the most valuable in the world, mentioned some time ago in the Gazette in the City Yesterday by G.E. Kinkaid, the explorer who discovered the great underground citadel of the Grand Canyon several months ago during a trip up from Green River, Wyoming, Colorado in a wooden boat to Yuma.
According to the story, Mr. Kinkaid, archaeologist at the Smithsonian Institution, which financed the expeditions, have made discoveries that prove almost conclusively that the race that inhabited this mysterious cave, carved into the rock by human hands, was of oriental origin, possibly from Egypt and dating back to Ramses. If his theories are confirmed by translating the hieroglyphically engraved tablets, the enigma of the prehistoric peoples of North America, their ancient arts, who they were and where they came from will be solved. Egypt and the Nile, Arizona and Colorado will be linked by a historical chain stretching back to times that would boggle the novelist's wildest imagination.
a comprehensive review
Led by Prof. S.A. Jordan, the Smithsonian Institution is now conducting the most extensive exploration, which will continue until the last link in the chain is forged. Almost a mile underground, some 1,480 feet below the surface, the long main passage was excavated to find another gigantic chamber from which dozens of passages radiate like spokes on a wheel.
Several hundred rooms were discovered, accessed via corridors branching from the main hall, one explored at 854 feet and the other at 634 feet. Recent discoveries include items never known to be native to this country and undoubtedly originated in the east. Weapons of war, instruments of copper, sharp and hard as steel, indicate the high level of civilization attained by this strange people. The scientists were so interested that preparations are being made to equip the field for extensive studies, and the force is being increased to thirty or forty people.
Mr. The first white child to be born in Idaho, Kinkaid was a lifelong explorer and hunter, having spent thirty years in the service of the Smithsonian Institution. When told briefly, his story sounds like a fairy tale, almost grotesque.
“First I would be impressed that the cave is almost inaccessible. The entrance is 1,486 feet above the canyon wall. It is on state land and visitors are not permitted under penalty of trespassing. Scientists want to work undisturbed without fear of archaeological finds being disturbed by the curious or relic hunters.
A trip there would be unsuccessful and the visitor would be turned away. The story of how I found the cave was told, but in one paragraph: I was sailing down the Colorado River alone in a boat looking for minerals. About 42 miles upstream from El Tovar Crystal Canyon I saw sedimentary formations about 2000 feet above the riverbed on the east wall. There was no path up to that point, but I finally managed to reach it with great difficulty.
On a ledge that hid the view of the river was the entrance to the cave. There is a stairway leading a hundred feet from this entrance to what was river level at the time the cave was inhabited. When I saw the chisel marks on the wall in the entrance I got interested so grabbed my gun and went inside. During this journey I retreated several hundred meters along the main corridor until I reached the crypt where I discovered the mummies, one of which I got up and photographed with a flashlight. I collected a number of relics, which I carried across Colorado to Yuma, from where I shipped them to Washington with details of the discovery. After that, scans were performed.
“The main walkway is about 12 feet wide and narrows to 9 feet at the far end. About 57 meters from the entrance, the first side corridors branch off to the right and left, with several rooms on both sides the size of today's living rooms, but some are 30 by 40 square meters. 🇧🇷 These are entered through oval doors and ventilated through round air openings through the walls to the corridors. The walls are about five meters thick.(Video) Smithsonian Cover-Up: Ancient Egyptians and Giants in the Grand Canyon
The passages are chiseled or carved as straight as an engineer might design them. The ceilings of many rooms converge in a center. The side corridors near the entrance emerge at an acute angle from the main hall, but gradually reach a right angle to the direction towards the rear.
“More than thirty yards from the entrance is the corridor, several hundred yards long, in which the idol or effigy of the popular god sits cross-legged, with a lotus flower or lily in each hand. The face shape is oriental and the carving from this cave. The idol closely resembles Buddha, although scientists are not sure which religious cult it represents. Considering all the knowledge found so far, it is possible that this cult is closer to the ancient peoples of Tibet.
Around this idol are smaller images, some beautifully formed; other twisted and deformed shapes, probably symbolic of good and evil. There are two large cacti with outstretched arms, one on each side of the dais on which the god is crouching. All of this is carved out of hard, marble-like rock. In the opposite corner of this traverse, tools of all kinds made of copper were found. These people undoubtedly knew the lost art of hardening this metal, which chemists had been unsuccessfully searching for centuries. A workbench that ran the length of the workshop held some charcoal and other materials likely used in the process. There are also scoriae and things like mat, showing that these ancients smelted minerals, but no trace has yet been discovered of where or how they did it, nor the origin of the mineral.
“Among the other finds are copper and gold vases or urns and bowls with a very artistic design. Ceramic work includes glazed pottery and glazed vases. Another passage leads to horreos found in eastern temples. They contain seeds of various kinds. A very large warehouse has yet to be accessed as it is four meters high and can only be entered from the top. Two copper hooks extend to the rim, suggesting some form of ladder was attached. These barns are rounded because the material they are built of is very hard cement I think. A gray metal is also found in this cave, which confuses scientists as its identity has not been established. It looks like platinum. Scattered on the ground are so-called "Cat's Eyes", a yellow stone of little value. Each one has the Malay's head engraved on it.
"On every urn or wall above the doors and stone tablets found for the picture are the mysterious hieroglyphs, the key which the Smithsonian Institution still hopes to uncover. The engraving on the tablets probably has something to do with the religion of the people. Similar hieroglyphs have been found in southern Arizona. Only two animals can be found among the pictorial writings. One is of the prehistoric type.
“The tomb, or crypt, where the mummies were found is one of the largest chambers, the walls sloping backwards at an angle of about 35 degrees. Within them are rows of mummies, each occupying a separate carved shelf. At the head of each is a small bench on which lie copper chalices and pieces of broken swords. Some of the mummies are covered in clay and all are wrapped in bark cloth.See Alsocanyon | National Geographic SocietyA 1909 Farsa from the Grand CanyonThe mysterious story of an underground city lost under the Grand Canyon25 Things Nobody Can Explain About The Grand Canyon
The urns or cups on the lower levels are crude, while reaching the higher shelves the urns are of more delicate design and show a later stage of civilization. It is noteworthy that all the mummies examined so far have been male and no children or women have been buried here. This suggests that this outer part was the warriors' headquarters.
“No animal bones, skins, clothing or bedding were found in the discoveries. Many of the rooms are empty except for water tanks. One room, about 12 by 220 meters, was probably the main dining room, since kitchen utensils are found here. What these people lived is a problem, although it is believed that they came south in the winter and farmed in the valleys and returned north in the summer.
More than 50,000 people could comfortably live in the caves. One theory is that today's Arizona Indian tribes are descendants of the servants or slaves of the people who inhabited the cave. There is no doubt that people who reached a high level of civilization lived here thousands of years before the Christian era. The chronology of human history is full of gaps. Professor Jordan is very enthusiastic about the finds and believes that the find will be invaluable for the archaeological work.
“One thing I haven't talked about might be interesting. There is a chamber in the corridor that is not ventilated, and as we approached it, we were met by a deadly odor of snakes. Our light would not penetrate the darkness, and until stronger ones are available we will not know what the chamber contains. Some say snakes, but others boo the idea, thinking it may contain a deadly gas or chemicals used by the ancients. There is no sound, but it still smells like a snake. The whole underground facility sends shivers down the spine of shaky nerves. The darkness is like a weight on our shoulders, and our lanterns and candles only make the darkness darker. The imagination may delight in conjecture and ungodly reverie over the centuries that have elapsed until the mind spins dizzyingly in space.
an indian legend
In connection with this story, it is noteworthy that there is a tradition among the Hopi Indians that their ancestors lived in an underworld in the Grand Canyon until discord between the good and the bad, the people with one heart and the people with two hearts originated. . hearts. Machetto, their boss, advised them to get out of the underworld, but there was no way out. Then the chief grew a tree and pierced the roof of the underworld, and then the people of one heart came out. They stayed along the Paisisvai (Red River) in Colorado, growing grain and corn.
They sent a message to the Temple of the Sun asking for blessings of peace, goodwill and rain upon the people of one heart. This messenger never returned, but today in Hopi villages at sunset, tribal elders can be seen on the roofs of their houses, looking up at the sun and looking out for the messenger. When you return, your country and your former homeland will be returned to you. That's the tradition.
Among the engravings of animals in the cave, the image of a heart can be seen in the place where it is located. The legend was created by W.E. Rollins, the artist, spent a year with the Hopi Indians.
There are two theories about the origin of the Egyptians. One is that they came from Asia; another that the racial cradle lay in the region of the upper Nile. Heeren, an Egyptologist, believed in the Indian origin of the Egyptians. Discoveries at the Grand Canyon could shed more light on human evolution and prehistoric eras.
UNDERGROUND EGYPTIAN CITY HIDDEN IN THE GRAND CANYON – PART 2
AFTER THE DISCOVERY OF THE OLD CITY
One of the strangest things I discovered was that a newspaper called the Arizona Gazette ran an article about a great and wonderful Egyptian underground city hidden in the Grand Canyon and then nothing! There were no other articles, follow-ups, or other articles writing about it. The information just disappeared. I have to ask myself why was this article written? Was it another article he had no reason or right to talk about? Or was it something else?
I tend to think that if something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. I chose this story and spent over 8 years researching everything I could find.
MEET THE TREASURE HUNT TEAM
8 YEARS OF RESEARCH ARE NOT ENOUGH TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF THE DISCOVERY OF THE GRAND CANYON
8 years of research and I found a lot of resources and information, but was that enough? That depends on the eye of the beholder. I think I've narrowed the range down to a 2 mile stretch and I have a feeling this might be the place. This area is south of Lake Powell Dam and several miles along the Colorado River. This area matches the Arizona Gazette description and I think since the eastern canyon walls are owned by the Navajo Indians, chances are you have the right place.
I also found short and, at the time, meaningless documents in the digital library of a university in Arizona. After a while I started to believe that documents aren't useless, I was just lazy. This was another point in my research where I considered taking information at face value. Is this all as it seems or is there more to the story? I also found documentation on the proposed Lake Powell Dam and the various sites they considered before choosing their current resting place. In these documents I found strange accounts as to why some possible locations were abandoned. Things that make no sense to me again. This is information that anyone can find if they spend time searching.
Another thing I found interesting was a makeshift tram that was built and used... What was it used for? This streetcar site was too far away to build the Lake Powell Dam. What was the tram used for? This could be another clue to the mystery.
The more I researched this story to see if I could prove or disprove its credibility, the more confusing information I found. When I come across conflicting information like this, I start to wonder if there might be some truth to this story. There is a lot of information that I will not reveal at this time but will reveal later in another article. I especially want to bring this story to the attention of the public and allow them to begin their investigation. I want to plant a seed and see if it grows. Maybe it will open your mind a little and send you down the rabbit hole.
That's what historical research does to you. Stay current and don't stray too far from fact and fiction. Common sense is key, remember this. The information can be used. A conspiracy is toxic if you get too involved in it.
WHY IS THIS INFORMATION HIDDEN FROM THE PUBLIC? WHAT WOULD BE THE REASON?
Let's start by explaining why the government may have kept this story from the public. I would say the main reason would be that it would change history as we know it. A lost city with statues resembling those of Egypt and China would not correspond to what we knowStoryfor North America. There are many reports of voyages to America by Spaniards, but not by Egyptians and Chinese.
HISTORY WOULD IT MATTER?
One of the reasons I suspect a story like this might be kept out of the public eye is that they don't want explorers and adventurers touring the Grand Canyon area looking for clues to a potentially dangerous environment. From what is mentioned in the article, climbing and descending the walls of the Grand Canyon can pose a serious threat.
We all know and have seen what Black Friday is like. People run and do anything to get a bargain.treasure huntIt can be the same when people believe they have a chance to get rich.
A lot of people can argue about a lot of different points, but I think there's a little bit of truth in every story if you keep an open mind.

FINAL THOUGHTS ON AN UNDERGROUND EGYPTIAN CITY HIDDEN IN THE GRAND CANYON
Let's just say this story has no real meaning and is just a story, something to spice up a good hunt but an interesting thought nonetheless. At this point I can neither confirm nor deny the legitimacy of the story.
If it wasn't true, everyone's life would go on and nothing would change. No damage, no failure. Just fake news.
If this story is true, I would say we have a lot to lose.History, government cover-ups, and something new to see and learn. For some of you who are new to stories like this it might seem impossible, but for others this story seems real and someone should do something to look for more clues and evidence so we can all find out for ourselves.
As I mentioned before, I won't mention all of my clues and discoveries in this article, but what I'm trying to do is open you up to the possibilities. I want you to think about a few things.
Why did the Arizona Gazette write an article about the archaeologist's discovery? Was it just fake news filling a gap in the newspaper?
Why did the story go back and forth? Some say the archaeologist went public and said he lied about his discovery. That's also very interesting.
What would be the use of making up such a story and then dropping the subject? Fame? But the archaeologist reversed his story, so where did that get him?
Lots of questions to ask and discover. I feel like a reader could do a lot of research for this story.
I would like to invite you to investigate for yourself. Is simple. Go to Google search and start typing in keywords like "The lost city in the Grand Canyon". Or the Egyptian underground city hidden in the Grand Canyon. This will get you started and then you can see if it takes you down a rabbit hole like it did for me. Keep an eye out for another article I will write about this story in the future. There you will get more information about my clues, discoveries and locations. It will take you further and leave you in an adventurous and curious state. Until then…
