The whole region is a very heavily forestedpark preserve, so most certainly there could be sasquatch livingin there. Unfortunately, it’s a case of, “Lord, we don’t needanother footprint.” We are also at the same point with regard tosightings. We are not there yet with regard to photographs orvideos–although the hoaxed material always counts for twostrikes against anyone who presents images.
when we read about new discoveries in far-away places with strange-soundingnames, we marvel at the intrepid scientists who risked life and limb so that we can enjoy readingabout their adventures in
or some other prestigious scientific publication.However, I am pleased to see that a few of our treasured professionals do appear to stick aroundhome, although not many wander very far into the “badlands.” One, nevertheless, did kick a rock, andgot to wondering about something that intrigued me many, many years ago.If you get out into the garden now and then and shift things around, you have undoubtedly seenlots of “wood bugs.” They always reminded me of little armadillos – somehow they’re not quite thesame as the other “bugs.” Well, guess what? Someone has just discovered that they are not bugs,they’re
