It most looks like red dirt.

I bet it has something to do with infrared photography. I've seen this in a few other places and it never makes sense as to where it is. People who live in those areas report that there's nothing strange about the area. Only thing I can figure is that the original photos were done in color infrared, so that the vegetation is red instead of green, and the GE people do color conversions on the photos so that the vegetation becomes green, only in these areas, the color conversion doesn't work for some reason.

Other than that, I can't think of anything else that would make such a large area such a weird color.

I'd have to say i agree, but one would think that Google could get it right, they are a rather large company. Dissapointing, is the lack of quality these days.
