Sometime in June of last year, Me, My Mom, My Uncle, and My Uncles girlfriend Nora all went up to Payson, Arizona to camp out for a while. When we had go there we called My Uncle to find out were he wanted to meet us, since he left before us we didn't know where to meet him. We went to a little place on a hill i think it was a fishing store cause there was a lake behind it. Anyway, we made are way back to the camp site, but on the way my Uncle had to stop and cut up some wood. When we got there his tent trailer set up already. We all just hug out by the fire and talked for a while.
I got bored and asked Nora if she wanted to go for a walk or something. She said yeah but it was getting dark. We went anyway. We went down the first trial which was in front of our campsite it wasn't to scary just a straight path. When we were on the way back from the walk i asked her if she wanted to go on the other trial behind the campsite she said yes. We had gotten back to my Uncle and my Mom and told then we were going to go on the other trial. We headed down the trial. It was almost dark. We walked halfway and she asked me if we should go back because it was getting dark... I said no... So we kept going. We kept walking until we couldn't see the sun anymore and were going up a hill.Thats we started to hear noises. First i though i heard a band playing in the distance and then i though ' Were in the middle of the woods, theres no band out here ' So i ignored it and kept walking. Then she stops and looks at me and i say ' What ' and she says ' Did you hear that ' and i said ' No what ' and she goes ' That sound it sounded like a wild animal ' She said it was probably nothing so we kept going and thats when i heard it. It sounded like a wolf... or something. I looked at her and she looked at me and i said ' What was that ' and she said ' I don't know but lets turn around '. We walked...The fast as we could back to the site... We then started to heard someone yelling. As we got closer... It turns out it was only my Mom yelling for us cause it was getting dark.
Once we got back we told them about what we had heard my Uncle didn't believe us but my Mom did.
We sat around the camp fire until it was completly dark until it was at least 12am, then we went to bed. About 4 or 5 in the morning i was awaken by the sound of sticks being crushed...As if they were being stepped on. I tryed to ignore it and go back to sleep but just when i tryed i heard a few wolfs howl... then a few more. Soon enough it sounded like there was a whole back of wolves howling. I was scared to death. The sounds from the wolves had stoped when i heard a shriek and really loud screaming sound. It sounded like a woman being killed...It faded after about 4 seconds. I was about to wake my Mom up when she says ' Tera did you hear that' and i said ' Yes '. We started to talk about what it might been when my Uncle said ' Cut it out you two ' and my Mom was trying to tell him that we really did heat something...... But he didn't believe us. When we had woke up awhile after that we were asking if they had heard anything. They didn't.
A few days after we went home my Mom told me that her friend said that it could have been a skinwalker. She said that they are evil spirits that take a form of an animal..... and are usually out to kill someone. Another friend told her that he had come to think about it and a few years ago a laddie was murdered up there on the Mogollon Rim and it could have been her living that night over again. He said she was killed on Memorial Day, and come to think about it we were on the Rim and it was Memorial day........
....... My Mom always though it could have been Big foot. but after she remembered what the sound sounded like she said it was probably something evil. But to this day it is still unknown to what it was. Was it a Big Foot, Skinwalker.........
P.S. Im sorry its so long!!!!!!! But i had to find a place for everything. This story is true by all means!!!!!! Below are two pics that were taken.. one by my Uncle and the other by Nora........ Now you now why my screenname is skinwalkers_haunted_woods.
