CRESTONE — The Northern Saguache County Library District hosted the Unexplained in Saguache County on Wednesday Oct. 25. The event at the Baca Grande Library featured stories of chilling events that happened to real people in the region.
The public was welcome to attend the event and share their personal unexplained stories in the San Luis Valley. Approximately 11 people attended the second annual event and shared their stories. Popcorn was served and everyone sat in a circle as they told their stories.
Eden Elderberry, of the Saguache County Library, said the event was a big hit.
“We had this author that came in, and she tracks wolves. She told us these Sasquatch stories, which I think really all of us were hoping for. We had Sasquatch stories, and UFO stories. My friend, Jen, talked about these beetles raining down on her property, and last year we had someone who was a neighbor to her also tell us about beetles raining down on her property out at the KV, these are people that live near each other with similar stories. It was really freaky and weird.”
Elderberry said that almost everyone who attended had a story.
“There were some people that talked about seeing UFOs, bright lights in the sky, they talked about orbs. One of the biggest topics was orbs,” Elderberry said. “The Sasquatch stories were great. The lady who told us about the Sasquatch sightings told us she actually communicated with the Sasquatch in her story, telepathically. She saw one Sasquatch in Alaska and she also saw one in Mexico or Montana. The lady told us that she communicates with animals. She stated it just comes naturally to her to communicate with animals. Last year we didn’t have any Sasquatch stories, so we were excited to hear them. We saw her in the library earlier in the day, and when we heard she was coming back to tell Sasquatch stories, we were excited. One weird thing I have always heard from many different people, is that ant people created the Sand Dunes. There are a lot of stories going around about the ant people.”
Elderberry said that everyone really enjoyed themselves at the event.
“Everyone had a lot of fun, enjoyed it, and everyone was really open about everything too. We just had popcorn and hung out and told stories. The entire thing was recorded too,” Elderberry said.
Elderberry said that they plan to release a podcast on the event.
“We plan to probably release this on audio. We will release this through Saguache County Stories, which is our podcast if anyone would like to hear it,” Elderberry said.
