Thats a real creepy experience.
I went camping around Atsion lake, not so much smack dab in the middle of pine barrens, a few miles away from the mullika(Sp?) river.
Well a weird ( not so creepy now that i think about it) thing happened when my boyfriend and me were sitting on the edge of the lake watching the
stars. It was so quiet and no happy campers other than us around. We heard a splashing sound over and over again getting louder each time. I wanted to
knwo what was in the water but my boyfriend asked me not to turn on the flashlights cuz he said it might just be a big turtle. I got impatient and
just had to have a look see. I turned on my little flashlight and was searching for the source of the splash when all of a sudden my flashlight locked
on to something glowy and slimy and i'm pretty sure it was an eye of a creature but it was the size of a baseball! And i think whatever it was got
scared and dived. I had to move my flashlight a whole 180 degrees from left to right to see the whole creature's back. And i swear it looked like one
of the those dino thingy with humps.
We tried asking the rangers if they had any aligators/crocs/or any eals with eyes that big. They had no answer. Anyone have any suggestions as to what
we might have seen?
Oh and the same night we heard clear footsteps and crunching twigs outside our tent and we knew that our friends were fast asleep and there were no
other campers in sight. It wasnt a deer either.
