Where is this place?
Topic: Society 8:58 pm EDT, Apr 23, 2005

Every once and a while, when I log into a FreeBSD machine, I recieve this fortune:

Between 1950 and 1952, a bored weatherman, stationed north of Hudson
Bay, left a monument that neither government nor time can eradicate.
Using a bulldozer abandoned by the Air Force, he spent two years and
great effort pushing boulders into a single word.

It can be seen from 10,000 feet, silhouetted against the snow.
Government officials exchanged memos full of circumlocutions (no Latin
equivalent exists) but failed to word an appropriation bill for the
destruction of this cairn, that wouldn't alert the press and embarrass
both Parliament and Party.

It stands today, a monument to human spirit. If life exists on other
planets, this may be the first message received from us.
-- The Realist, November, 1964.

So my interest got peaked and I started looking at photomaps north of Hudson Bay. What I've found so far is an interesting splotch which makes me wonder -- what *is* this?,-87.878265&spn=0.659180,1.010742&t=k&hl=en

Another large splotch, obviously something that's been edited out; is it a goverment installation, or the word I've been looking for above.
