I’ve personally stumbled upon a number of such creations in the last decade in Texas alone. The first picture that accompanies this post was taken by me at Greer Island, Lake Worth, Texas – back in the summer of 2005 – when me and Lone Star State-based cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard were out at the lake, chasing down its legendary and notorious “Goatman” controversy.
It was kind of odd and ironic that we should have been investigating reports (including then-recent reports, I should add) of one particular cryptid, only to come across a curious structure most often associated with a very different one!
Regarding the second picture, I took this one in early 2008 when, along with Lance Oliver, who runs the Denton Area Paranormal Society (DAPS), I headed off to Lake Ray Roberts, Texas, where there was a flurry of Bigfoot action a number of years ago, and where – in the heart of the woods of the lake – we came across many such structures.
The thing that I found most fascinating about the Lake Ray Roberts discoveries was that the tree-limbs in question were significantly thick, and it would have taken someone – or something – with a considerable degree of strength to not only bend and inter-link the branches, but also in several cases to have literally torn them off the trees.
I intend making a return trip to Lake Ray Roberts in the near future, so if anyone wants to come along, let me know…
