by Donnie Eichar
In February 1959, a group of 9 seasoned hikers in the Russian Ural Mountains died mysteriously on an elevation identified as Useless Mountain. Eerie elements of the incident-unexplained violent injuries, signs that they cut open and fled the tent without appropriate clothes or shoes, a peculiar final photograph taken by 1 of the hikers, and elevated amounts of radiation located on some of their clothes-have led to decades of speculation above what genuinely happened.
