My son and son-in-law and I were on a hunting trip in the Yosemite mountains. We happened upon this road that looked like it had not been driven on or used lately, so we decided to go up that road. We were trying to find a lake by the name of Edison lake. We were off course, so we took this road to the top, and made camp. We had at at least 3 hours of day light left, so we decided to do some hunting. I went to the south, my son went west, and my son-in-law went north.
I was hunting for about half an hour when I heard this noise behind me. I turned and saw this old man directly behind me. I asked him what he was doing walking behind me, and if he knew there were any deer up here. I said, “You did not answer me, what are doing behind me?” “Oh, I’m just walking, but there’s not any deer up here.” I continued walking and he stayed with me, so I started back to camp.
As I walked back, this old man said, “How is your colon cancer?” I turned and said, “How do you know me?” He said “Let’s just say I know a lot about you.”
By the time I got back to the camp area, I could see two other old men in the camp ground. When I got to where my son and son-in-law were sitting, my son asked me what was going on? He explained that these old guys knew all about us, and said that we should not camp up here, but would not tell us why.
So we went to our camp site talking to ourselves. When we got there, we made dinner and talked about these old men and how they knew about us, and how it gave us a bad feeling. After cleaning the camp area, it was after 9:00, so we went to bed.
We were awoken by a bright light. I looked at my watch and it was 10:30. We jumped out of the van. There was a light that lit up the whole area, then all of a sudden, it was gone. We stayed up for about an hour talking to each other, then we when back bed.
We were awoken up again at 12:30, but this time the light was so bright that we had a hard time seeing it. It was all around us, and we could not see were it was coming from. We looked at each other, while at the same time we were loading the van. As we were going down the hill, the 3 old men were next to a tree waving at us. As we got to the bottom the hill the light hit us again. This time the driver side door opens up, and my son-in-law says that something is trying to pull him out of the van. My son and I grabbed him. We had a hard time trying to keep him in the van, then the light was suddenly gone, and we got him back in.
We drove all the home with out saying a word.
We told my wife what happened. Since then, my son-in-law and I do not talk and he has moved to Texas. My son moved to Rhode Island, and we have moved to Arizona.
Since the incident, my wife and I have had some great sightings.
