Michael taped my ankle and told us to load into the car. I was able to ride with my foot elevated and with it taped it felt pretty good. We headed out to find things which would have little hiking.
We checked out the little town of Gold Hill, Oregon and ended up at The Oregon Vortex. I did a bit of internet research and ran across the comment that the owners claim to be involved in the paranormal - that is not at all what we experienced or were told. This area was known to the Native Americans of the area as the "forbidden ground." Their horses would stop at the edge of the vortex and refuse to enter it. Animals still don't come into the area on their own. There are no birds, rabbits, raccoons...only snakes and insects - which I think has deep meaning. In the 1850's a gold assay office in the center of the vortex consistently weighed the gold wrong. That assay office is now the "House of Mystery." You may be able to blow these info boards up if you are interested in more details.

All seem to lean towards due north when in the area. We experienced this. When we got to the center of the vortex, many got motion sick.
It was fascinating. Some of the demonstrations were very interesting, while some seemed to be manipulated. Like this one which was to demonstrate the blind sense the difference as well....on the south side his shoulder was lower and supposedly on the north side it was higher...I discovered this with my eyes closed. Michael rightfully points out that he does seem to be standing with a different shoulder deliberately raised higher each time....one of those demonstrations which seem to have been exaggerated.
We found this excursion to be interesting, quirky and fun - just our sort of outing. They gave a $1 military discount - never hurts to ask.
