Report # 19961 (Class B)
Submitted by witness on Thursday, June 28, 2007.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Possible knocking heard in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

YEAR: 2007

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: June

DATE: 14

STATE: Michigan

COUNTY: Alger County

LOCATION DETAILS: The sighting was approximately a third of the way down the trail as we walked in to Miner's Falls. It was on the north side of the trail just up an incline behind a stand of four or five trees, maybe more.

NEAREST TOWN: Munising

NEAREST ROAD: The road that goes by Miner's Falls to PIctured Rocks.

OBSERVED: We were walking in to see Miner's Falls and were approximately a quarter to a third of the way down the trail when we heard a loud banging of wood on wood. At first we just looked at each other and kept walking. Then we heard it again and it was a little louder. We hesitated and I asked her if she heard that. She said yes. We looked in the direction of the noise and sure enough. There was a stick banging back and forth between two trees that were in a growth of trees. It was a large stick and you could see the end of it very well so it had to be sticking straight out. I'd guess it was about six and a half feet up the tree you could see it. Just before the banging stopped there was a glimpse of something dark that couldn't be identified. It seemed to be standing up from leaning over. As fast as that, the noise stopped and I wasn't able to see anymore. My friend didn't even get the glimpse from her angle. It was clear all the way around that growth of trees so whatever it was, went straight away from us on the other side of those trees.

There was no smell or fear associated with this. Just the banging and a glimpse of something dark that had apparently set that branch down as we were able to see it had been leaned up against the tree as the trail circled around that area. We did not go up to the trees to investigate.

ALSO NOTICED: Another couple heading back from the falls with cameras met us after a bit and seemed perfectly normal. When the incident happened however, there was no one else around during the moments it happened.

OTHER WITNESSES: Two, my friend and myself.

OTHER STORIES: Only what has been reported on the BFRO website.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: Early afternoon on a very bright and sunny day.

ENVIRONMENT: It was in the forest on an incline that led down to a sharp drop to the river below. It was in the area where all the numbered stops are to look at. There is a fungus growing on a tree right on the north side of the trail and the sighting was before that. I didn't have a paper to tell what number it would have been.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Caroline Curtis:

Miners Falls is a waterfall located on Miners River in the western portion of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The witness and her friend began hearing the wood knocking off and on for about a minute as they walked. At one point when they looked toward the noise they saw a stick hitting back and forth between two twin trees that were growing together. This was only about 20 ft. from them.

She preferred to refer to the stick as a limb because it was so large. There was about 18 - 24" between the two trees and they could see the limb knock back and forth between the two trees causing the wood on wood sound they were hearing.

The limb was straight out at a 90 degree angle and this witness believes she saw part of an arm, dark in color.

The witness has grown up in Michigan and there was no explanation or animal she knew of that could hold such a large limb, hold it straight out at that height while banging back and forth between two trees.

Memory told of a possible daylight sighting while playing in the woods in Eben Junction
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
YEAR: 1944

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: July

STATE: Michigan

COUNTY: Alger County

NEAREST TOWN: Eben Jct.

OBSERVED: The age here is 75 but I remember my first encounter vary well. It was in the summer of 1944, I was 9yrs old. It occurred in Alger co. Mich. near a post office called Eben Jct. It was at my grandfathers farm which was on the edge of The Hiawatha Natl.Forrest.

My mother and Aunt were pulling Rhubarb from a patch next to the woods. My male cousin and I ran off in the woods to play a favorite game-This is the kicker--We would take small dead second growth trees and whack them against live bigger trees trying to hit each other with pieces that flew off. After doing this for some time we stopped and looked around for some reason.The opposite side of the wood lot was not vary far away and the sun was bright. What we saw was a huge man standing broad side to us looking at us. He was huge and as we looked he turned and walked away. We flew out of the woods and told our mothers but they just said it was the neighbor man. Well it was not a man. We never went into that section of woods again. Did our knocking on trees draw him in?.I duno-

OTHER WITNESSES: My cousin now deceased

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Caroline Curtis:

The witness and I spoke, currently living in Wyoming. The last time he visited Michigan the old farmhouse where this occurred was no longer there. Many years have passed so no additional detail, but he still remembers the "scare" very well.

This is a rural community that was, and still is, primarily family farms. On the edge of the Hiawatha National Forest, the area is well known for its many creeks, trails, wildlife and waterfalls.
