This Colorado Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies Field Report comes from Robin Roberts.
|As an organization that feels strongly in connecting with our forest friends, SIR also reaches out and connects with humans. Robin Roberts had the wonderful opportunity to do this on June 23, 2013. Jordan who is 9 years old has been fascinated with Big Foot since he was 5 years old.
So on Sunday she took Jordan to do some urban squatching. The Denver Metro area is blessed with many local and state parks that are close to large federal forests.
So Jordan and Robin used 4 criteria to pinpoint where to go. The 4 criteria used was location of sightings, food source-deer/elk, lots of cover and good/clear water.
When they went down by the pond to look for tracks they came upon this track. It was at least 10.5 inches long. It maybe longer and was 6 inches wide.
They also came across bear tracks.
They went to another location.
They found some tree breaks.
There was a spot that was densely foliated and had a ravine with water that caught Robin’s attention. It would be what she calls a very squatchy spot.
She noticed some bits and pieces of charcoal on the ground going into this spot. There were several pieces in a line that lead right into this squatchy spot. Like a trail of dropped pieces.
It reminded her of what she had found almost a year ago while camping. She then looked around to see where the charcoal came from. Across from this spot in an open meadow there was an old tree that looked like it was struck by lightning.
She surmises that our forest friends were collecting charcoal which is a scarce source from the tree and dropped some while getting back into cover where the ravine and dense tree cover was.
Also not everything you see or encounter is Big Foot related. That good field work is meticulous and looking for details. He was shown how a person needs to learn to read what the forest is trying to say as an important key to discovering evidence.
He found out that there was not a Sasquatch hiding behind every bush or rock. Robin learned that a child’s joy of exploration and discovery is a simple joy that every adult needs.
