The clear, plastic bag of twelve (12) Golden Delicious apples, hung securely from a slanted branch over the (third) hidden trail at Area D. I would return three days later, and discover something truly remarkable; 7 April, 2016. Copyright © 2016 Sanjay R Singhal. All rights reserved.

Substantiation of this Report, and the behaviours described therein, may be provided, for the most part, by my own experiences at Area D in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and through 2015.  I do not know of other encounters and/or sightings in this area. Nonetheless, a cursory review of same suggests considerable activity.
The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:
- The long, ground-based branch assembly observed near the small statue;
- The destruction of the large, slanted-branch assembly and adjacent assemblies;
- The eerie quiet and stillness, experienced throughout;
- The remnant branch assemblies in the clearing, first observed in November 2011;
- The newly twisted-off branches, observed nearly ten to twelve feet above the ground;
- The newly arched American Beech saplings, wrapped and secured with vines;
- The freestanding arched sapling, oriented to the high dune hill;
- The composite branch assembly in the box canyon;
- The sound of a woman’s voice, at the back of the box canyon;
- The glimpse of movement, of a dark shape passing back and forth in the trees;
- The observation of a tall, dark shape in the meadow, also passing back and forth;
- The strong, emotional response experienced as I left the reserve;
- The glimpses of movement behind us, as we left the reserve;
- The strong, emotional responses again experienced when I returned with the apples;
- The sounds of movement in the brush;
- The repeated glimpses of movement in the trees;
- The strong, emotional response experienced as I returned to the carpark.
These factors, alone or in combination with past experience(s), may be considered sufficient to confirm the presence of EC  at Area D in the spring of 2016. I have since returned to this area, where I have experienced some startling observations and encounters. Further investigation may provide additional information regarding possible habitation in this area, either permanent or itinerant.
An unusual number of subjective events also occurred. While these cannot be considered conclusive, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainty.

 EC, in this context, stands for “Elder Children”, as usual.
 Not as many times as I should have liked, but, well, there you have it.
