This is by far the scariest thing that has EVER happened to me, and what solidified in my mind that there are other things out there that aren't
supposed to be there.
It was 2009, first week of January, and I was driving back to Los Angeles from spending time with my family in Tennessee/Kentucky over the Christmas
and New Year's holidays. It's an easy drive, no map needed, I-40 all the way from Memphis to L.A. I made it to north Texas the first night and
slept, got up the next morning and continued on. The drive the next day was uneventful and around 9 pm or so I started to get tired so I took the next
exit to find a hotel for the night. The place I stopped at was Holbrook, AZ, maybe about 40 minutes east of Flagstaff. I drive down to the last hotel
on the road off the exit, which was a Motel 6, pull up, go inside, pay for my room and get a room key. I drive around the motel and park on the north
side of the building, which backs up to an unpaved dirt lot.
So I'm standing there with the drivers side doors open on my SUV, going through my bags getting everything I need for the night out and I hear this
scream. Scream is maybe the wrong word, it was more like a roar, mixed with a high-pitched wailing, kind of like a baby wailing and a bear roaring at
the same time. I glance to my left, and there's this HUGE shadow in the shape of a really tall man (or something) standing on the embankment about 10
feet away from me. I freeze up and I stare at it for maybe 10-15 seconds, then it roars again, jumps over the ENTIRE dirt lot it was standing on (I
could see the shape of it landing on the other side of the lot from the streetlights) and vanishes into the night. I freak out completely, bolt for my
motel door, leaving my SUV wide open in the middle of the night, lock the door, and barricade myself in the bathroom. That night I took the sheets off
the bed and slept in the bathtub with the door locked (just so I had an extra locked door between me and the outside) I was so freaked out. I woke up
early the next morning and got the hell out of there.
I will never forget the sound that whatever this was made, it was so loud that I felt it through me, if that makes any sense. After I locked myself in
the bathroom that night I started searching on my phone for any sightings resembling anything like that around that area, and that's when I learned
about all the sightings of skinwalkers around the 4 corners area (which isn't that far away). It's probably also worth mentioning that there are
Navajo reservations all around the area. What amazes me (almost) as much as seeing that thing was that it scared me so badly I bolted to my room and
left the two drivers side doors and the back cargo door on my SUV wide open all night, filled with Christmas presents and expensive music equipment,
and no one touched any of it. All night I couldn't help but to think how I was sure to be robbed, but there was NO way I was going back out there.
Surprisingly, no one touched a thing in my car, my laptop was sitting right on the seat where I left it, even though the doors had been open all
night. I lucked out in that respect.
I know this probably sounds bat#### crazy but it actually happened. I'd love to hear anyone's stories about similar things they've seen.
