This past week, myself and several other researchers spent several days in the area around Lake Eucha, OK, where the local people have been reporting Sasquatch activity for years. Six of us from Missouri, Tennessee and Texas gathered to meet the people, explore and hike the area, and simply look and listen.
First, let me tell you that this is one of the most beautiful places I've have the privilege to visit. Magical really. The woods there felt old and mystical. If only the trees, rocks and streams could talk and tell us their stories.
But perhaps the very best part of the trip was the wonderful people that we met. From the warm and hospitable Cherokee people, to the Fish and Game warden that kindly gave us so much of his time, we felt welcomed everywhere we went. I want to thank each and every person who generously opened their hearts and arms, and willingly shared their stories. Meeting you enriched my life.
It was also wonderful to spend time with dear friends. Ron, Larry & Sharon, Gregg, Sybilla and Ashlan.....there's nothing quite like getting into the woods and wilds with like minded people and simply soaking it in (and it always helps to have friends there to help out when the ticks try to carry you away........folks the ticks in Oklahoma have 'attitude'....hah ha!).
Some of the Sokskwaches even made the trip with us....grin....shown below are Mirabella and Ada trying to peek into Rons tent....;-) I've also added some pics of the amazing scenery.
Are there Sasquatches in Oklahoma....absolutely. And they have lived peacefully among and amid the Cherokee people for centuries. It was wonderful to sit with the elders and listen to what they had to say about their experiences. They have so much wisdom to share if you're willing to sit and listen. To each of them, I sincerely say, Thank you! I can't wait to come back.
