Response to Monkey Road & Thunder Bridge
it sounds like monkeys when you drive over it because it is made of old, (now) moving wood that was LOUD like thunder and the trees around move and sound "skreetchy"...or so they say. There's a railroad underneath it as well which could account for some of the "thunder" noise. I think that it has now been rebuilt (or modified/closed off) 2 times since I went (it was about to fall down, i am amazed they still let people drive on that thing)... I only know this because I pass it on my way to work in the mornings and noticed cones, etc.
elder dodge doesn't follow you around with jeeps. i was there on a scavenger hunt late at night, walking all over that lot, and not even a cop came to question us. even when people started opening the hoods of cars. such a trusting little town...haha. i can't think of another town where you can walk around and open the hoods of cars for sale on a lot and not be arrested/questioned.
oh and the spanish trace inn is now "america's best value" or something like that. very cheesy.
i hope you find some interesting info, though...those stone things are strange, but i hardly believe the tunnel thing. companies would have to know about tunnels like that before building/digging/erecting/whatever their business is on different sites in town, and, if they do exist the companies that i have experience with do not know about those things, or if they do, they don't worry about it.
