responding to the strange camping trip on the Arrow Lakes (Sunshine
Bay). There is, and always has been, a great deal of strange activity in
the day and night sky. I lived in Fauquier, BC, which is a small town
that is built alongside the Arrow lakes.
As a young boy I would lay
outside in the summer night and watch the dancing stars in the sky and
did not think much of it until one day in May of 1977. It was just past
12 noon and myself, my brother and at least a dozen other kids
witnessed a daytime UFO. It was so fast that it was really just a
brilliantly shiney object about the size of a VW bug and as was stated
in the Sunshine Bay incident, there was silence - no sound
whats-so-ever from this object. It was flying about 200 feet above the
lake in an eastern direction and then abruptly went straight up and
disappeared into the blue sky.
This area in the Kootenays is
very volcanic, there are many natural hot springs along the lake and I
have often wondered if in some way there is a connection between the
UFO activity and the volcanic activity.
I had very strange
experiences as a child in this area, between the age of 7 to 12 and
without going into great detail I still remember blinding light that
terrified me very often at night. The very strange part is often waking
up in the morning with my underpants on me in a very strange way. Once
I woke in a very contorted way with my head and one arm through one of
the leg holes of my underwear and one leg through the other, if you can
imagine this it was very weird to say the least. My family believed
that I was just having night terrors, but as an adult I believe this
not to be the case.
As I said there are very
strange things that happen in this area and It was not a shock to come
across the Rainbow creek story. It is my hope to do a kayak trip in the
summer of 2012, video camera in hand and see if I can find any sort of
In more recent years while in
the Arrow lakes, I came across a gentalman of eastern european decent
who over a period of several days I noticed writing in a black book. He
wrote like a man possesed, his hair and beard gave him a Jesus-like
appearance, or rather how Jesus is portayed in pictures. I could not
help myself, I had to ask him what he was writing about. He looked me
straight in my eyes and said that he was re-writing the bible and that
the Arrow Lakes is the vortex of hell, what ever that meant. Perhaps he
was a not of proper mind but then agian who am I to say.
