Mima Mounds

MIMA MOUNDS

I love to learn about new things. Although I love to get out of the house, the frigid temperature keeps me in. And so I surf the web in search of places to visit when spring arrives. That's how I found this unusual geographic feature.
Mima mounds are found on the praries of southwest Washington state. Apparently there is much debate about the geological formation of these unusual grassy hills. They can also be found in Alaska, Texas, Australia and China. Scientistists believe the ones in Washington to be 7,000 to 9,000 years old and probably created by retreating glaciers. Other explanations include being caused by Native Americans or possibly burrowing animals of some sort. I will definately visit this place!
