It could have very well been a sasquatch. The bone-chilling howling is extremely common at night in areas that they inhabit or even just pass through.
The best I can come up with is that they use it for different purposes, such as communicating their positions to warning of approaching people, and
other stuff in between that I am sure we have no clue about.
The reference to the stone giants, or stone people, are natives' references to sasquatch...From what I have read and heard, it has something to do
with the animals rolling in mud, then the mud drying over their hair, as it looks like stone. Sasquatch are nothing more than regular animals, despite
the weirdness that has been associated with them. Also, they actually do go down on all fours like a gorilla would, especially when traveling lower to
the ground would be easier because of the trees...They also do this sometimes when trying to remain unseen. But this is usually only when moving.
If one is relatively still and it is close to the ground, it is probably just hiding and watching. There are the thermal videos of this behavior,
which are hard to verify authenticity-wise. One shows the animal actually crawling on its stomach when trying to sneak closer to a person. There are
also anecdotal accounts of this same behavior. This could account for what was seen in the trees in your account.
Also, there are documented sightings from that same county, so they are definitely around there. For the most part, these animals occupy the entire
US, with few exceptions. Most people just don't understand that they are animals, but still different from most animals in a way that makes them seem
more human. They actually make a great effort to avoid people. This is why they're so elusive. Why they do this I don't know, but they do.
