Mysterious Lake Beasts of the Far North

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on February 20th, 2015


The cold, rugged expanses of the northernmost U.S. state of Alaska naturally invite wonder and awe. Here is one of the last truly great wildernesses of North America; a relatively unexplored expanse of unspoiled mountains and ancient forests unfamiliar with the touch of humankind. Tucked within the sweeping vistas of pristine wild expanses is the magnificent Lake Illiamna. Here we are the strangers, merely existing in small settlements, eking out a living on the giant lake’s shores. Extending beyond those shores are the deep waters of one of the largest lakes in the United States and under those waters lurk hulking, dark shapes that cruise below the waves. For here in the far north, in this frigid lake ensconced by boundless wilderness far from modern civilization is the supposed watery domain of one of the most enigmatic and little understood lake monsters in the world.

The reason for its name is that the mimick […]

Do Hidden Creatures Live in the Pacific Northwest?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on January 30th, 2015

The lack of skeletal remains of Sasquatch in the Pacific Northwest is readily explainable, said Jeff Meldrum, an Idaho State University anthropology professor, in Richland Thursday night.

His talk at the annual meeting of the Columbia Basin Badger Club — “Do hidden creatures live in the Pacific Northwest?” — attracted a sold-out crowd of 130 people, a record number for the club.

He’s taken a look at what he believes is the scientific DNA and forensic evidence gathered on Sasquatch in his book Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science.

As someone who grew up, and lived for many years, only a 15-minute drive from England’s notorious Cannock Chase woods, I have taken a keen interest in the many and varied cryptozoological events, incidents, and encounters that have occurred there.
