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!

Sasquatch isn’t the only cryptid that we believe exists out there, we’ve probably all heard of the Loch Ness Monster and Rougarou, but what about Afghanistan giants—possibly the Nephilim?
It was 2002, when an alleged, still classified military mission came across these creatures. All the soldiers of a patrol in a report part of Afghanistan mysteriously went missing without a word, so a search party was sent out to see if they could find out what had happened.
The rescue party was descending a goat path down the side of a mountain when they came across a cave that had lots of rock, “bone matter” and a piece of what one soldier identified as military communication equipment outside of it.
The whole situation seemed off when, out of the cave they saw something moving at a speed higher than they expected, barrelling out of the cave. It was a monster—one with long, scarlet red hair past his shoulders and a scraggly beard. He was “at least 12 to 15 feet in height” and 1,100 lbs. It had six fingers and six toes, and it smelled “worse than a skunk” akin to a corpse that had been dead for a while.
The creature, three times the size of a man, came charging out of the cave and managed to “skewer” one of the soldiers on a pike before they managed to kill it. In the aftermath, the large, unexplained body was taken by a special unit. And, to make matters more mysterious, while the original after-action report that contained the entire story was rewritten.
Afghanistan Giant Killed: What Do We Know?
The Afghanistan Giant that was allegedly killed in 2002, sounds like it could be describing Sasquatch, or some relative creature. With its large stature, scraggly hair, strength and foul odor, is it possible the patrol ran into the Afghanistan version?
Many people familiar with this encounter actually believe the Afghanistan Giant to be a Nephilim, not a Sasquatch. The Nephilim is a biblical creature resulting from the mating of divine beings with human women. They are written about in the books of Genesis, Ezekiel and Numbers, and are described as being “great warriors and Biblical giants.”
While Snopes.com stated that the U.S. government said that they have no record or information regarding a death involving a giant. If the mission continues to remain classified, it’s not terribly surprising.
Some conspiracy theorists on Reddit propose that certain regions of the countries closed for travel are reserve-type spaces closed off so that visitors don’t disrupt the giant population in the country. However, it’s much more likely that these areas are dangerous to travel due to political forces.
But, the real question is, could this creature really be a Nephilim?
It’s a true mystery to ponder. While you’re doing that, make sure to grab our official camping mug so you can enjoy your coffee and listen to the Syndicate podcast while you’re out in the bushes—make sure to let us know if you spot your own Sasquatch!
