This section is not a joke. These are actual accounts of strange tracks and sightings in the Pine Barrens. Truthfully, I've never been a believer in fairy tales. The story of the Jersey Devil is certainly fascinating, but until I saw evidence with my own eyes (and camera) I was skeptical. There is definitely something in those woods...and it's not human.

While walking through the Pine Barrens, I ventured pretty far back on secluded trails. I had my video camera with me that day and recorded what I saw. There were large, deep U-shaped tracks, similar to hoof tracks in the slightly damp sand and leaf litter. They were impressed in the ground about 2" or so deep. Something large and heavy would have had to make those. The stride was similar to that of a human, but smaller. The prints were nearly as large as my hand.

Still curious about the other day, I ventured out into the Pines again, this time with my camera and zoom lens. The tracks were a bit difficult to make out on the vid cam, so I figured this might work better. Exploring the perimeter of the lake I found new tracks. These were the same as the others except much clearer. They were very numerous and some appeared to have the impression of toe or claw-like features at the end of the print. These were of particular interest and the fact that they were right next to the lake and in wet sand, they stood out. I snapped many pictures which will appear here soon. They were very deep, suggesting a very heavy animal. With my boot heel, I stomped on the ground and could barely make an impression that deep...and I was trying. Something walking there had made those. I saw this area was somewhat of a clearing and went up the bank into the woods. Not even twenty feet in and there they were-the tracks I spotted the other day. That's when I realized something. That these newer tracks had appeared within that time frame. I was on that bank two days earlier and saw nothing. Something was actually there after I was.....
