Cryptozoology In Colorado

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 7th, 2008

Just a reminder: I will be signing your personal books, answering questions, and selling books at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, on Sunday, November 9th through Tuesday, November 11th, 2008.

The famed Pikes Peak Bigfoot Crossing sign.

I shall be finding a way to get outside on Sunday or Monday, hopefully, to view the likely habitat for the nearby Rockies Sasquatch, as well as tracking down some elk and bighorn sheep. I understand local wildlife guides are already shutting down for the season, unbelievably.

(“MonsterQuest” was just in Colorado, filming a forthcoming episode on Bigfoot. I probably will be in that program, as an interview with me about the state’s sightings is already in the can.)

The elusive Colorado Howler!

My illustrated talk at the hotel is entitled, “Colorado Bigfoot and Cryptozoology” and will be on November 11, between 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm. I hope to meet people during the following dinner break for more in-depth discussions of all our favorite topics.

See you there!

I am curious, are any people reading this in Colorado? Besides a NHL mascot, is there really a Colorado Howler? Where does myth, legend, and reality split in the tale of the Howler from the Rockies versus the hoax of the Howler of the Ozarks?

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
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.

    Hi Loren! I hope to change my plans to make it up there on Sunday. I would love to get an autograph and discuss my own sighting and other experience from my childhood in Washington State. You should have a great time looking at habitat and wildlife. I’ve lived in Colorado for seven years and cannot imagine living anyplace else.
    It should be fun!

    The old Stanley Hotel, what a wonderful location!

    My family vacationed there almost every year as I was growing up (the park, not the hotel). I’ve never heard of any sightings there. I suspect that Trail Ridge Road has already been closed down. My ‘live’ updated ‘wallpaper’ on my computer shows that they have snow today in the high country. Not further down, but more looks to be coming in over the Divide. It might be bitterly cold higher up, but a little snow can be good for tracking. Maybe some attendees can give you good tips of where to look this time of year.

    Have a great time in one of my favorite places!

    Maybe if you’re lucky you will find more than Bigfoot staying at the Stanley Hotel. 😉

    Hi Loren,
    I will make it up there to hear your talk. I live in Colorado.

    I’m afraid I’ll miss it, but Welcome to Our State! Have a great time.

    Hello Loren. I am from Denver. I have a been a cryptozoology fan since childhood but I can honestly say that I have never heard of the Colorado Howler. I didn’t know the Avalanche had a mascot let alone one of the cryptic nature. I don’t follow sports much!
    I am aware of sightings of Bigfoot in Colorado over the years, heck, even the t.v show Unsolved Mysteries based a show on Bigfoot sightings here in Colorado and that was very exciting for me back then. So if there is a Colorado Howler he doesn’t get much press.
    I am excited you will be in Colorado but I can’t make it on such short notice. Estes Park is a beautiful little city. Man I wish I could make it to your talk! Take care.

    Hey Loren!
    Have fun at the Stanley for me! I was born and raised in Colorado and loved it. Living in Colorado and hearing about, and possibly even seeing, bigfoot got me interested in cryptozoology. My friend back in Colorado (I live in Las Vegas, NV now) and I spent many nights near Lost Creek Wilderness Area in Pike National Forest outside Colorado Springs searching for signs of bigfoot. We never witnessed what we wanted to, but I can definitely see how an elusive creature could hide out in those mountains!
