Mysterious Egypt, land of a thousand years

Written by Gary Wonning

Located in the upper third of the Cheops pyramid it is hard to imagine how the workmen were able to get these huge stones this high from the ground. The stone over the King’s Chamber is larger than a train locomotive. The chamber itself must be about twenty feet wide, long, and high, and the walls are fashioned out of polished granite. Looking around I spotted two air chambers on opposite sides of the room and the sarcophagus sitting on one side. People were peering in when I suddenly heard a gasp. Someone had lain down in the vault for a photo op and just as a lady peered over the side, he raised up, and gave her quite a fright.  It got a chuckle out of everyone.
