Some years ago I was wandering around the four corners region with my kids trying out different places to live. I was in New Mexico at the time, camping at Los Alamos.
Los Alamos is a very different place. The energy there is quiet, like the whole place is trying to keep a secret.
The first night we arrived in Los Alamos we camped at Camp May. I think that was the name of the place. Once the sun went down it was the eeriest place I have ever been too. I felt like I was being watch the whole night. The kids needed to rest so me and my dog sat up with the campfire going most of the night. For those of you who like the paranormal and places to visit, go investigate Camp May, I would love to see what you think.
As soon as the kids woke up, we were out of there.
While we were in the area we decided to check out the Jemez Mountains and the Valles Caldera National Park. The Velles Caldera is spectacular! I really felt the immensity of it when I was standing at the look out. Viewing the Caldera from the lookout I was humbled and awed!
That evening we decided to camp south of the Caldera. New Mexico has some awesome camping areas. Some are dry camps so make sure you have water wherever you camp in New Mexico.
A shallow stream raced down the valley through ponderosa pine trees and oak brush. It was summertime so it was warm that night. My son put the campfire out and they went to bed in the back of my big black truck. I slept in the tent next to the truck in a tent with my big black dog Bear.
During the night my dog woke me up growling. His hair was standing up on his neck and his tail was bristling. I told him to lay down and be quiet. I wasn't worried because I had packed the food in the truck and thrown the trash in a garbage can away from our campsite.
The Dog would not calm down. He kept growling and tried a couple times to get out of the tent.
Then I heard this sound, it was a screech, howl kind of sound. The sound came from one side of the valley. Then I heard another sound similar to it come from the other side of the valley calling back. I took a breath to calm my heart as it was a sound I have never heard before. Then a third howler, screecher started in and it was closer to where we were camping. I sat up and listened better.
As the screeching howling sound went on I noticed it sounded like a conversation. There were definitely the beings having a conversation. I started petting my dog to calm him down as we sat listening in on this crazy middle of the night conversation. I kept thinking, you always wondered if there were really Sasquatch in the world.
The next day we packed up after breakfast. I asked the my sons if they had heard anything weird during the night. Of course they didn't. But I believe to this day I was a witness to the nightly conversation of several Sasquatch.
