This is a crop from a larger photo with something of a story to it – one day a person I have a passing acquaintance with who fancies themself a Sasquatch “hunter” saw it and asked if I could crop this section and give them a copy?
I said sure and asked what was so special about it? They replied they just liked it.
After making the crop and transferring it to a flash drive they had they began to ask me a lot of questions about the location, was the ground disturbed and any signs of activity – did I ever see or hear strange things in the forest?
I replied I see and hear a lot of strange things but they seem to be mostly confined to cities and the internet and asked why all the questions?
They in turn asked if didn’t know what I was looking at?
When I assured them I did but had an idea we were of differing opinions they told me it was a Sasquatch lair, den, nest or whatever – they left in a huff when I couldn’t stop smiling so a heads up, if you see this photo on the net being depicted as the aforementioned Sasquatch habitat don’t believe it – it’s nothing more than debris washed up during high water in spring runoff.
If you look closely it appears as though a sasquatch with the initial B carved it into the tree – maybe a form of territory marking?
All of the nations have stories about Sasquatch like creatures and I’ve heard more than one from the non indigenous which I tend to dismissive of depending on those always blurred photos/videos, obvious photo shopping, and sometimes the individual associated with them.
When it comes to casts of footprints as evidence or “hair samples” that never prove out the degree of skepticism increases – I’m capable of duplicating any “footprint” in existence as are many others.
Yet there are those I know among my own I trust implicitly with a tale or two to recount, one of them being grandmother.
