PLUM CITY -- Unless they were looking for it, most people probably wouldn't notice the unique geological formation stretching for four miles in eastern Pierce County.

The formation is known as the Rock Elm disturbance. Some geologists think the disturbance is an old meteor crater; others suspect either faulting or pressurized gas was the culprit.
