Montana Vortex and House of Mystery

Nice visit -- tour guide was slow talking, worked to hard to sell you that it was mystical instead of slight of eye. Not free, cost $8 per person.

The Vortex can slow down or speed up a tour guide's rap without warning. We heard.

Montana Vortex

Since 1970, the Montana Vortex has been but a footnote against the more well-known "vortexes;" like the Oregon Vortex, but in 2005 this Vortex was sold to Joe and Ali Hauser, folks who saw more there than what had previously been known. The Hausers learned of me and that I have written three books on this general subject, the latest being, "The Golden Vortex," a tome inspired by having had a long connection to The Oregon Vortex. I began consulting to the Montana Vortex in '05 and am still finding more things going on at this facility. For instance, the Montana anomaly is composed of three vortexes tangled up with each other, which makes this place the most dynamic of any of the others. I have visited most of the others, and co-wrote "The Vortex Field Guide"(www.vortexmaps.com). The photos taken at the Montana Vortex are sock removers -- you can shrink and grow by simply walking around a 12-foot circle, see your own aura in another circle of trees, and find information there that doesn't appear at the other roadside attractions.
