UFO Sighting at Wolf Creek and an old story for you
This evening I happened on your website and the UFO story when I plugged Wolf Creek, Utah into my Google Browser. Although I live in Pennsylvania now, I grew up in Salt Lake City and use to spend my summers from the period around 1969 to 1978 at my Grandfather's ranch in Wolf Creek, Utah. The
exact ranch location is where Wolf Creek flows into the South Fork of The Duchesne river, right off state road 35. About 8 miles from Hannah, Utah in the Unitah Basin.
Anyway, I thought I'd share an interesting story with you. In mid-summer 1971 or 1972, my Grandfather showed up in Salt Lake after being scared off the ranch by an unusual event. He was alone then (grandma had died) and would spend the summers in Wolf Creek. The story he told went something
like this.."I was awakened around 1:00 in the morning by an abrubt report, similar to something from a rifle. When I looked out the window, I was surprised by the fact that the meadow and canyon walls were lit by moonlight. However, the moon had risen early and normally would have already gone down below the horizon by midnight. The it hit me, all the cows in the pasture East of the ranchouse were standing-up and looking into the sky to the South of the ranch house. I grabbed my rifle and went out on
the Front porch where I was startled by a bright orange glow hovering several hundred feet off the canyon floor. The glow remained for about ten minutes and I found myself too scared or too mesmerized to move, just like the livestock. After ten minutes, the glowing orange light flew off to the West toward Heber". My grandfather was pretty shaken and hopped in his truck and headed for Defas Dude Ranch on the North Fork of the Duchesne for the night. He didn't like to spend nights alone at the ranch after that time. He died in 1986.
None of us family were sure what to think, grandpa never talked of any other sightings. He was a pretty straight old guy and not necessarily one to make up wild stories. He stuck to the above story I told you until the day he died.
