Continued from Expedition 5 Part 4. The evening was very peaceful. No screams or out of place noises. I got some much needed sleep. However, our two young men spent the night watching over the camp and keeping the fire high.
The next morning, it was time to break camp. I had retrieved the cameras up near the meadow. Clay and I took this on early while the others slept. As we headed up the road, we came upon 5 turkeys running up the road. They kept just in front of the truck for about 75 yards before they finally decided to get off the road and head up the mountain. It was a very rare sight indeed.
Clay and I retrieved the cameras with no out of the ordinary circumstances, and we returned to camp. On our way back there was another turkey standing in the road. It soon ran away, and we continued back to camp.
We started to break the camp down for us to return to civilization. But, I needed to retrieve my camera near the cement pond, and the three prints we had cast in the sand. We found the three prints. One of the prints had already been removed from the sand and was upside down in the water. Someone or something was interested in the plaster in the sand. We saw no other Bigfoot prints, I suppose it could have been a raccoon or skunk curious about the funny white rock in the sand. But then again, maybe it was something else that had moved the footprint. We retrieved the three prints and headed back to camp.
We finished breaking camp and started to leave. We spotted the orange on the table and thought we should retrieve it before the Forest Rangers found it and blamed us for baiting bears. We found the orange was squished and the slices removed from the peals leaving a round hull of rind. Very strange indeed! Note, the end of the attached video shows the casted footprints and how we found them.
The trip was over, It was a long, boring trip back to town.
