Seismic Bunker in Rattlesnake Canyon

A lot of people have seen it but few know why it was constructed. It was created during the final days of construction to monitor the filling of Lake Roosevelt for earthquakes from shift soil and weight. Even after Lake Roosevelt was filled the lonely station was manned for a while before being closed for good.
