Bigfoot Days are being celebrated in Willow Creek this weekend. As it happens, the photos are beginning to be sent in from last weekend’s Beyond Reality event with the TAPS folks, at the beautiful Mount Washington Hotel at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire.
Here are some.
Jeff and Jess Meuse, volunteers at the International Cryptozoology Museum, attended the conference and stopped by for a photo.
Reader Erin Berube enjoyed a picture moment with three hairy guys.
As I was driving down Mount Washington at 6:30 am on Tuesday, I was treated to a little megafauna encounter. There was a mother moose and what appeared to be her yearling, eating on the side of the road. I pulled over and watched them for about 20 minutes, enjoying this little piece of the Pleistocene in contemporary times.
With my car’s flashing lights on, I slowed down a few vehicles zooming down the road. Indeed, when the two moose finally decided to take their sweet time crossing the pavement bisecting the forest, I was able to prevent an accident by waving a warning to the driver of a large truck who correctly stopped mid-roadway. What was about to happen would have ruined his whole day.
Wonderful beasts, but they do not have any wits about them when it comes to staying out of harm’s way.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
