In the Sierra Nevada mountains in California, you can see the direct path length of over 60 km, built now extinct tribe of Indians miuok. Further to the south-east there are remarkably straight "road", which converge at the Cha-to-Canyon in New Mexico. Built 1,000 years ago, long extinct tribe of the Anasazi, they reach 9 meters wide. This despite the fact that the Anasazi had no wheeled vehicles, or horses. Road stretch far into the wilderness surrounding Chaco Canyon, and fragments of the same road, there are in Arizona and Utah.
Apparently, they bind religious buildings — the so-called "Big House" — a network of small churches. In those places where the road comes to the edge of the canyon, its walls carved steps leading to other "big houses", located on the bottom of the canyon and also linked by a network of paths.
Soundly laid out and perfectly straight bridge surrounded Lakvemada archaeological site, south-west of the city of Zacatecas, Mexico. Built around 800, they not only connect Lakvemada complex area, but also lead to unexpected places such as rocky slopes and caves. Along certain roadways are altars. Approximately 1,000 years ago the ancient Mayans built on the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, ritual trail called sacbes (white path). The longest of stretches for 99 kilometers, connecting the city of Coba and Yakusana, American researcher Thomas Gunn wrote that "it is as straight as an arrow, and smooth, like a ruler."
In South America, NASA researchers using aerial photography also found "seeking directness" roads laid in the mountainous rain forests of Costa Rica. Built in 800, they seem to have served to transport the deceased to the cemetery. Ancient cobbled lanes and now continue to enjoy the Kogi Indians in northern Colombia.
There is a direct road and on the high plateaus of Bolivia, and one of them, the length of 32 km, was laid over the mountains and valleys are interconnected sanctuary Aymara. Many pagan temples located in these ways, turned into a Christian church. The same network of direct paving found in the Llanos de Mohos, Bolivia, and there are reports of other ways to have this kind of Amazonian Indians.
Some archaeologists suggest that the majority of these direct road use in commercial and military applications, and also had a religious meaning, deeply alien to the modern, clean practical understanding of function of the road. Another group believes that these lines were primarily markers in a kind of "sacred geography", connected with the transcendent experiences of shamans and sorcerers.
In Bolivia, the stretch between the shrines Indians surprisingly straight cobbled paths.
