New York (upstate)
I'll never forget as long as I live. Back in August 1989-90, my boyfriend Jeff and I were walking home from a Richard Marx concert, off route 50. We decided to cut through the Winchester Trail (trail leads behind property to Geyser Crest) to where we both lived back then. It was 9 -10 PM when we hit that trail in 'pitch dark' and it gives me chills to think back, but I'd like to share this story if it helps in any way.
As soon as we reached
the trail off to the right and down an embankment, in the dense woods,
something was moving and as it WALKED the ground shook. It was getting
closer to us and seemed like it could see us but we couldn't see it. Then
we heard trees being snapped as we ran, parallel to where we were running
and it chased us almost all the way out off the trail. We were VERY scared
& continued running & could barely see where we were running.
No one would believe us when we told the story. We decided to go back
the next day during daylight hours, just to confirm what we thought happened
down there. When we got there the next day there were several 7 by 5 in
circumference footprints, some were the size of a man's neck. Green saplings
snapped in half, coming up the trail from where we were running; we immediately
thought Bigfoot even though we didn't actually see any creature. And,
they were snapped off a good 4 to 5' up from the base of the trunk of
the trees, so they had to be snapped off by something that was 'standing'
on it's hind legs. We checked for footprints, but didn't go too far down
there to inspect the area out of fear. But, you could clearly see the
trees were snapped right off as if they were only twigs.
