Yeah, let's keep crop circles and trace evidence of object
landings and impressions separated. It seems to me that the crop
circles came about as the result of the odd impression seen in a
field or marsh and the hoaxter's decided to create a few of
their own and it got out of hand after that.

Swales, swirls and depressions and 'saucer' nests were, and
still are, found on occassion. I never see a "crop" circle in
the middle of a dense forest - [i.e. a 60 foot crush-down of
trees and bushes - or in a swamp or marsh however, it's always
in some easy place to get to, a farmer's field with a road next
to it.
