Oct. 12, 1953. A Douglas C-124A Globemaster took off from a military airstrip near Vancouver, loaded with unmarked crates. Its destination: a classified installation in the Nevada desert.
Somewhere over the snow-capped peaks of the Rocky Mountains, its final radio transmission spoke of an electrical storm originating from within the plane's cargo hold.
In the decades since, there have been strange sightings on one particular peak. Climbers have reported their rations depleted
by swarms of faeries. A spelunker (and 3-time lottery winner) claimed to have found a strange gold lamp. A tour group insisted that their helicopter was harassed by a dragon for an entire afternoon.
Folks in nearby towns have started calling it MYTHIC MOUNTAIN.
