An experience I had years ago with my retired biologist/conservation officer/wildlife and land management grandfather in the high Uinta mountains.
Excuse this long post but I’m trying to give lots of detail and specifics on the experience. Let me first clarify that this was 4 years ago, when I was 15 on a muzzleloaders mule deer hunt in the far north eastern part of Utah, which contains some of the most remote ( and beautiful) places in the state. I’ve been frequently out in this area spreading in Summit county that cuts in and out of lower Wyoming since before I can remember, including lots of hiking, backpacking, camping, hunting and being involved in some of my grandfather’s work. I am skeptical of things not proven by methods of science, but I don’t deny all of those things. I find that it’s impossible for science to know of all that is out there in our vast world.
My grandfather is a recently retired biologist and former conservation officer for the state. and was a regional specialist and was over wildlife and habitat management for many years. He’s doke everything from habitat management programs ( controlled fires to benefit areas) to quite literally wrangling moose to be transplanted and darting black bears. He has seen mountain lions, bears, birds of all kinds, small mammals, ruminants, plants and natural phenomena for a majority of his life, and he understands so much that many people, including myself, will never be able to even imagine. He’s scientific, honest straight forward, level headed. He’s agnostic and is not superstitious and often used to ( lovingly and respectfully ) tease a certain CO who thinks certain bigfoot, skinwalkers and other beings exist. Other than this experience, he has never encountered an animal that he could not at least partially ( if not completely) identify, and other than the natural, innate fear of being in close quarters with a bear, drunken and belligerent hunter, or incredibly potent tranquilizer medication, he’s told me over and over he’s never been terrified of an animal or experience like this, only curious or surprised.
It was late September and we were in a small camp by a lake in the high Uinta mountains, hunting both grouse and mule deer with muzzleloaders. The camp was a small collection of men and women my grandfather had worked with over the years as a supervisor/biologist/CO and these were people I grew up with. One of the women ( a new wife to one of the guys) had shot a buck deer, injuring but not killing it immediately and they had lost track of it, devastated by the thought of wasting the animal, she returned to camp in the af

January trip up Grandfather Mountain—I’m committing to doing all three peaks at least once a month for a year. I was following tracks in the snow up until this section—then it was just me and the mountain all the way to MacRae Peak.
wierd story about my grandfather aand wierd people living there, can anybody tell me who these people are, i reallyy need to know, they live in the mountains.
My dad was born in a small village in the mountain's of Guatemala. He would have to cut through the forest late at night to get back home after collecting firewood for his family. My dad's dad (my grandpa) would do the same thing to get to my dad's house after he got back from wherever he was at night. Anyways, one day my grandpa had been walking back to his house through a particularly eerie part of the forest when he thought he saw something. Now, this was during the civil war in Guatemala, and there were wild animals about, so this wasn't the safest place to be. He says he remembers seeing a very tall, pale woman with long hair standing across from him. Now, my grandpa wasn't no pussy, he grabbed his gun and pointed it at her and told her to leave. She just looked at him and started to talk about some satin shit. He didn't even flinch, instead he walked closer amd told her to leave. She finally ran off into the forest. Now this might just seem like some ghost story, and it might be. But up the mountain a little ways is a village no one really talks about because people barely ever see the inhabitants. But when they do, 2 things that stand out are there height and abnormally pale skin. Do you know anything about this Jen

Looking for bluegrass/mountain recommendations to honor my grandfather.
I am looking for music recommendations to honor my late grandfather. He recently passed at the age of 88.
I am in charge of putting together a memorial CD to distribute to the family at the reception following his Funeral Honors. Our intent is to put together songs that represent a tribute to the great man. He was fond of American Folk/Mountain/Bluegrass, country, and Irish Folk (I am also including a Michael Bolton song at the request of my Nan)
I would like to hear some of your recommendations for songs that would be appropriate in this situation. Thank you very much in advance for your help.
