Sasquatch Encounters in the Nordegg Area, Canada
It would appear that a hot spot for Sasquatch activity is in the area surrounding Nordegg, Alberta, Canada. Nordegg is a small hamlet nestled in the Rocky Mountains in the southern part of the Canadian province of Alberta.
It boasts a beautiful, largely untouched setting, crystal blue waters and clean air. Perfect for a relaxing remote getaway for those that love exploring the outdoors, it’s no surprise that Sasquatch would take up residence in the area.
While they often see visitors traipsing around in the more popular areas surrounding the town, there’s a lot of space for them to run largely unbothered with miles of mountains on any side. Fresh water is abundant and trees can be in every direction, which is why many think Sasquatch might be in the area.
Sasquatch in the Nordegg Area
The Nordegg, Alberta area is home to many a Sasquatch sightings. The Bigfoot Field Research Organization has two Nordegg-specific Alberta sightings. The first in June of 1998, when a creature was spotted by a camper at Camp Alexo.
Then again in 2016 when two hunters experienced rock throwing and tree shaking while they were in the area. Plus, while it’s not the most detailed report, Sasquatch Alberta has a report that specifies not only tree structures, but also noises and a possible footprint related to Sasquatch in the area.
But sightings in the area are more popular than these sites let, but it’s not the sightings that make this area so popular for Sasquatch hunters. Instead it’s the occurrence of the tree structures. In fact, there’s a popular one that many Sasquatch enthusiasts are enthralled with.
Why Tree Strcutures?
The thing about tree structures is that they absolutely could be a naturally occurring phenomena. Trees break and fall over and storms wreak havoc in the woods, but the consistency in the look of discovered structures makes many believe that the placement is all too familiar to be coincidental.
Some elders and members of First Nations tribes in Canada believe that these structures are placed in commemoration of the birth of a new member of the Sasquatch community, others think it could be the marker of a colony or a territory boundary set up to signal the end of the habitat for juvenile members of the group.
These theories in and of themselves don’t prove the existence of Sasquatch, but if you pair them with the stories of rock throwing, eye shine in the woods, wood knocks and possible sightings of First Nations members in the area, it seems a little suspicious that they’d simply be a good ol’ fashioned coincidence.
While we don’t know what these tree structures symbolize either way, nor do we know if they symbolize anything at all. It seems that naturally occurring structures, especially at the rate that they’re spotted in the Nordegg area, seems to be a tad bit unlikely.
So if you decide to head to Nordegg, you may want to pick up a new Sasquatch Syndicate hoodie because it can get a little chilly in the mountains, and if you have a story to share from Nordegg, please let us know in the comments below, or email us. We'd love to hear from you!
