Looking for bigfoot in Rhode Island…

Today Howard and I went out squatching together. I received an email from a woman who had seen all my recent postings from my hikes in Wrentham and Cumberland, as I followed the Warner trail, and she thought I’d be interested in her strange encounter.

For those that hadn’t seen those postings, here’s some info about The Warner Trail. The trail is a 30 mile long New England hiking trail that extends from Diamond Hill in northeast Rhode Island through to Norfolk County, Massachusetts. At one time you could could follow it all the way to the Blue Hills. But of course the land was broken up so developments could be built. While I was exploring I focused most of my time on the wrentham and Plainville area of the trail, but I did do one day in Cumberland Rhode Island.

Over the years I’ve been in many sections of this trail, On one hike In the Moose Hill section in Norfolk Massachusetts I was able to catch a few knocks on my video footage. I also felt a bit like I was being watched. I have also found large structures, etc. if bigfoot was wandering this area I wouldn’t be surprised, it certainly offers everything he would need to sustain him.

So Howard and I hit the trail where, Elaine, had her strange experience. She said she lives off of Fisher Street near Diamond Hill Park in R. I where part of the Warner Trail runs. The trail says private property but apparently you are allowed on it. This part of the trail leads to the Cumberland Reservoir. She said while walking from her house down the trail she heard a sound out there she had never heard before. A sound between a growl and a long babble.

She only heard it that one instance and she didn’t see anything around her. She said she was familiar with Rhode Island wildlife and didn’t think it was one of the usual critters found out there.

Now let me say this part of the trail is a nightmare. Slanted, rocky, narrow and very dense forests, even if something was out there you couldn’t see it, and of course the rocks tore my ankle up again.

We didn’t hear or see anything except for some old grills poking out. I did some research and apparently the YMCA had a campground out there some years ago.

It was a rough walk for most of it, and I didn’t see anything that stood out as any evidence but I did get to walk another section of the trail so I feel like I accomplished something today!

I don’t know if she heard a bigfoot, fox or some crazy person out there, but it would make for an easy migration trail for one to travel on. You have to wonder if he uses these types of trails to get around, I mean why not it’s a nice green corridor to travel on, running right along a river, if I was bigfoot I’d be all over it…

If you have had an odd encounter or bigfoot/paranormal sighting on any part of the Warner trail I’d love to hear from you!

Hope you had a great day today…

Real or Hoax…

I just popped online again a few minutes ago, and every platform had this posted. If it’s real it’s something amazing.

Some comments say it looks to new to be a fossil, and how did this guy just trip over this. I mean anyone can stumble on something amazing.

I hope it’s real and not a hoax and that he found a find for the ages…

I guess we will just wait and see. Thoughts?

The Wild Man…Part 1

While I’ve been home nursing a sick doggo I took the time to do some research. My journey through history took me to The Journal of Biblical Literature. The articles purpose was to describe what scholars call a “a stock character of international folklore tradition,” the Wild Man. They of course first and foremost always describe him as hairy. How much hair is a little different depending on the regions and point of time in history. For size he’s depicted as anything from dwarf stature all the way to gargantuan. Or as this author describes it, he is a “size shifter”. His mode of life? “Living in inaccessible and unsettled places such as forests, mountains, caves or crevices. “

He is able to move physically using all fours to be able to march the speed to catch up to the wildlife he hunts for food. And cares for the wildlife he doe not.

“And my favorite part, which states something I say often, the author writes, “in the forest habitat, because of his kinship with nature, he knows about things that are unknown in human society.”

He is overall considered as being sub-human, the boogeyman of the forest. Something parents would use to keep children of the woods. (My mother used this technique in Maine)

And finally, he is considered “a representative of a monstrous race; of a far away time, a prehistoric specimen.”

After reading this you can easily see how the “wildman” became interpreted as being a “bigfoot” In these modern times.

Gold Mine Bigfoot…

Lars Larson, a New 49’er member who was mining on the claim, discovered several footprints which measured a whopping 17 inches long, and 11 inches wide! Three of the prints were in gravel and were not as distinct; but one was on solid ground. Lars was able to make a plaster casting of the print.

Happy Camp is well known as “Bigfoot Country”. The first sighting of one of these elusive creatures was made on Thompson Creek nearby tributary of the Klamath River.

Lars reported that he searched the surrounding area thoroughly, but was unable to find any further evidence, such as broken branches, tufts of hair or any additional footprint

Today, a very large metal rendering of Bigfoot created by local artists stands on the edge of Highway 96, and is the first thing you see when arriving in Happy Camp from the east.

Smiling Sasquatch…

https://gaterrocks.iheart.com/featured/clint/content/2022-06-22-georgia-man-captures-photograph-of-smiling-sasquatch/

Happy Thursday everyone! I truly hope it’s a great day so far. So, I have shared this post and similar posts of the smiling bigfoot on my social media pages, and when I post these pics I generally try not to give my thoughts of it so I can read others thoughts on it. Hey, you never know what someone else may bring to the table. But here on my blog I don’t mind sharing my thoughts.

I’ll try to start sharing them more often. So, smiley squatch will be the first one. First, it’s a very cute smile, but…it’s just a tree. The same hole or hole like shading that makes an adorable smiling squatch are also on the tree he’s peeking from.

It’s very epic pareidolia. Well, to me it is. I can see how it could be mistaken though, and it’s always fun to have lively discussions when new pics pop up! And it’s not to say he doesn’t have one around him.

Nature does amazing things, paints amazing pictures for our eyes and our minds to dream with…

Goodnight everyone!

The Hairy Men of Vancouver…

REPORTS TELL OF CANADIAN MONSTER MEN

Settlers Fifty Miles From Vancouver Describe

Hairy Giants…

Sasquatch men, remnants of a lost race of “wild- men” who Inhabited the rooky regions of British Columbia centuries ago, are reported roaming the province again. After an absence of several months from the district of Harrlson Mills, 50 miles east of Vancouver, the long, wierd, wolf-like howls of the “wild men” are being heard again and two of the hairy monsters were reported seen In the Morris valley on the Harrison river. Residents In the district tell of seeing the two glants leaping and bounding out of the forest and striding across the duck feeding ground, wallowing now and again in the bog and mire and long, swaying swamp grass’.

Reported Agile as Goats. The strange men, it was reported, after emerging from the woods, came leaping down the Jagged rocky hillside with the agility and lightness of mountain goats. Snatches of their weird language floated on tho breeze across the lake to the pioneer settlement at the foot of the hills. The giants walked with an easy gait across the swamp flats and at the Morris Creek, in the shadow of Little Mystery Mountaln, straddled a finating log, which they propelled with their long, hairy hands and huge feet across the sluggish Glacial stream to the other side. There they abandoned the log and climbed hand over hand up the almost perpendicular cliff at a point known as Gibraltar and reappeared at the top of the ridge. They carried two large clubs and walked around a herd of cattle directly in their path.

Indian’s Story Retold…

The return of the giants to the legendary stronghold of the Sasquatch monsters recalls the narrow escape of an Indian at the same spot last March. A huge rock narrowly missed his canoe while he was fishing and looking up, he said he saw a huge and hairy monster stamping his feet and gesticulating wildly. The Indlan escaped by cutting his fishing tackle and paddling away. The same Indian declares two Sasquatch twice have stolen salmon which he tied outside his house out of reach of dogs. The latest appearance of the monsters was peaceful. They avoided the trails usually used by people of the valleyand molested neither cattle nor human beings.

People who have reported seeing the giants on their rare appearances described the men’s appearance as ferocious looking like wild men, nine feet tallu and covered from head to toes with thick black hair..
