Default Side-scan sonar pics: Timber Holes

I scanned an 11 mile stretch of the Timber Holes and came a across some cool looking structures.

The scan swath is 200 yards wide. So if an object takes up a quarter of the scan width, the object is 50 yards wide.

You can click on a picture to take a closer look.

There are a lot of perfectly cylindrical holes through the limestone in this area. Supposedly used to be a forest area with trees growing through it tens of thousands of years ago. Not far fetched given the photos and videos of preserved cypress trees off of Alabama coast dated to 50,000+ years old.
