Seeking Interesting Stories About The Area


Hello again, fellow Creekers.

Anyone seen Bigfoot recently? I was going through some old papers I had lying around that all had to do with the Christopher Creek area and I found some pretty interesting material. One of which claims to be a Bigfoot sighting quite sometime ago. There was an even an artist’s rendering of the creature, which I found eerily similar to a couple of folks I played poker with a few weeks back over at the Creekside (kidding fellas).

Anyway, it got me to thinking that talking to people around town, I’ve gotten lots of little tidbits about some “unique” stories here and there. I have decided, along with my brother Nick (an avid hiker and adventurer), to try and chronicle these stories and make them “usable” and fun.

I am hoping to have my brother work with Susan Keown, Dennis O’neill, Rod Britain and anybody else who knows some tales and trails on this project (assuming, of course, they say yes when I get around to asking them).

My brother then plans to create a Web site containing all of the information, trails, maps and stories we’ve gathered as a resource for locals and out-of-town adventurers alike. I’ll be sure to give everyone an update once some serious progress has been made.

OK, so now here’s your homework. If you’ve heard of any superstitions, myths or any neat stories about the Christopher Creek area, I’d love to hear from you. Even if it’s just bits of a story, it may be added to an existing story to make it more complete. So, think back to some of those campfire moments and shoot me an e-mail.

As always, I do need your help with content and stories! For anyone wanting to submit information from the Christopher Creek area for inclusion in our weekly article, please e-mail me at: Any submitted pictures must be full-size (typically around 1MB per picture). The cutoff time for inclusion in Friday’s article is close of business on Monday.

Thanks again for reading the column.
