Trinity County, California 1987 - 1989
The Yolla Bolly Wilderness
near Indian Dick above Round Valley
Between 1987 & 1989 I worked on the USFS trail crew that cleared the hiking trails in the Yolla Bolly Wilderness. I can't readily remember our exact location though I know I could take somebody there or show on a topo map.
Any how one evening after work while we were setting up camp, the pack mules started acting really skittish and were trying really hard to get loose.
At the same time we were hearing a sort of crackling in the woods that sounded eerily like a human walking through the woods and there was a foul odor permeating the air. This went on for about 2 hrs when it all stopped as suddenly as it started.
