Scientists Follow a 'Yellow Brick Road' in a Never-Before-Seen Spot of The Pacific Ocean

An expedition to a deep-sea ridge, just north of the Hawaiian Islands, has revealed an ancient dried-out lake bed paved with what looks like a yellow brick road.

The eerie scene was chanced upon by the exploration vessel Nautilus, which is currently surveying the Liliʻuokalani ridge within Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM).

PMNM is one of the largest marine conservation areas in the world, larger than all the national parks in the United States combined, and we've only explored about 3 percent of its seafloor.

Seen giant highway made of bedrock in central America. It was just an old river bed but that layer of rocks looked like a giant paved road. Maya used these rocks for making stelae.

That’s pretty cool, I always want to see both the Mayan and Aztec ruins just never had the time.

Reminds me of the summit of the highest hill in southern Britain, Pen y Fan:
