New images of a possible lost city hidden by Honduran rain forests show what might be the building foundations and mounds of Ciudad Blanca, a never-confirmed legendary metropolis.

Archaeologists and filmmakers Steven Elkins and Bill Benenson announced last year that they had discovered possible ruins in Honduras' Mosquitia region using lidar, or light detection and ranging. Essentially, slow-flying planes send constant laser pulses toward the ground as they pass over the rain forest, imaging the topography below the thick forest canopy.

I've read articles about these cities and the possibility that there are hundreds lost in the rain forests... I kind of wish that they stay lost.

Poor country + gold-filled city = you wont probably find many golden objects there after a while.

I've been born again 31,8,2014 approximately 21:35 local time. A moment free of clutter in the mind, emancipating myself like an escapist, allowing myself to breathe life in a stronger, less physical level... though it does resonate to physical world. It's the oomph.

Why?  Archaeologists need something to do.  They may find something of great importance about the era the city was populated.

Sort of like the Pyramids, until the looters come along, and looters can mean anyone including the archaeologists .

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I've always felt that the jungles and rain forest held many secrets, and not just wildlife discoverys.
