Substantiation of this Report, and the behaviours described therein, may be provided, in part, by various reports published on the BFRO website,[1] [2]and others. Nonetheless, a cursory view of sightings at Salt Fork State Park suggests considerable activity in this area, both historic[3] and contemporary.[4]

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events at Parker Road are as follows:

  1. The enormous footprint observed in the heavy brush belt;
  2. The direct, visual sighting of a large, sand-coloured adult male EC[5] immediately adjacent to same;
  3. The foul, unpleasant odour encountered in the campground;
  4. The visual sighting of a large, upright figure outlined in a silver, gleaming shimmer.[6]

These factors, alone or in combination, may be considered sufficient to confirm the presence of EC at Parker Road. Further developments at the campground, the adjoining woods, and/or the number of visitors thereto, may have affected same; I have only returned to this area a few times since then. Further investigation may provide additional information regarding possible habitation in this area, either permanent or itinerant.

A number of subjective events also occurred at Parker Road; while these cannot be considered conclusive evidence of EC, they cannot be discounted in their entirety. Nonetheless, they may be considered as peripheral, and therefore possibly pertinent, to the physical, visual, audible and olfactory events outlined above.

[5] EC, in this context, stands for “Elder Children”, as usual.

[6] While this factor may not be considered a direct visual sighting of an EC, I am at a loss to explain what else it might have been.

  1. From what everyone tells me the salt fork state park location has been “played to death”,wich to me means heavy pressure from man.I was told that this sometimes pushes th out of certain locations.I hope not because that area is just breath taking.

  2. Tom, thanks for your message; I appreciate your feedback. However, I do not personally feel that the park has been played out, or that the incursions of man are pushing out any other creatures. Based on my own experience, there is still a great deal of activity in the park, and a great deal more to be learned. Cheers, Sanjay
