Unsolved Mysteries in the Grand Canyon

Shadow of a Man

This photo above was taken by someone using an internet live cam from the canyon, as he looked for UFOs, but what he found was a giant shadow of a person (at least it looks that) - bottom left quadrant of the photo. It could be some kind of soil erosion, but a few ponder if perhaps something was set up long ago to cast a shadow like that, such as the geoglyphs of Nazca or the Intaglios of Blythe, California. This is only one of many oddities at the Grand Canyon. 

Giant Mummies in Egyptian Tomb

In 1909, the Arizona Gazette featured an article about a supposed find of an Egyptian tomb in the Grand Canyon. 

The reports were that a man named Kinkaid discovered a cave up on the wall of the Canyon while riding the waterway. He stumbled into supposedly grand caverns within that housed giant mummies, riches, and lots of art that appeared to be either Asian or Egyptian. 

This is a sample of what the rather hard-to-find "Kinkaid" said;

"The idol almost resembles Buddha, though the scientists are not certain as to what religious worship it represents. Taking into consideration everything found thus far, it is possible that this worship most resembles the ancient people of Tibet." He also stated that he had found an unknown gray metal, resembling platinum, as well as tiny carved heads, scattered on the floor. Urns bore "mysterious hieroglyphics, the key to which the Smithsonian Institute hopes yet to discover." In another room he found mummies: "Some of the mummies are covered with clay, and all are wrapped in a bark fabric." 

Considering this was in 1909, it seems to remarkably resemble other finds of ancient giants in Death Valley and other locations. Their script and their art appeared Egyptian or Asian to those who do not know that the ancient race of giants apparently influenced worldwide script and art so, in fact, Egyptian art would resemble giant influence.

There's been a lot of question as to whether this is a true story or not. The newspaper did mention the Smithsonian sweeping in and the story going underground. We know how that goes - 

Given strict guidelines on where you can go in the Canyon, we may never know for sure, but interestingly there are whole sections in the Canyon with pathways named for Egyptian titles.

Missing Newlyweds: Glen and Bessie Hyde

In 1928, newly married couple, Glen and Bessie Hyde, embarked on a honeymoon ride down the Colorado, went into the Grand Canyon and never were seen again. The couple's boat was found fully stocked, but the couple was nowhere in sight. Did they hike off and get lost? The case has never been solved. 

Kolb Skeleton

In 1976, a male skeleton of a young adult age was found in the home of photography Emery Kolb who lived on the Rim. It was thought they might be the remains of the missing Glen Hyde, but the skeleton was too young. So, henceforth, it has been dubbed the Kolb Skeleton and his background is still unsure.

UFO crash

This article caught my attention - please don't take it too seriously, but it is a delight! 



Flagstaff, Ariz. - A team of experts called in to examine strange debris at the bottom of the Grand Canyon discovered the wreckage of a UFO that crashed a mind boggling 4,000 years ago!

The scientists, members of a highly secret joint military task force on UFOs, inspected the spherical craft and found it to be in good condition despite its rough landing and incredible age.

The relic is made of an unknown metallic substance and emits low levels of radiation, according to leaks from highly placed sources. It was immediately removed from the site and is now in a secret location.

My contacts tell me this craft is definitely of extraterrestrial origin and without a doubt carried a crew of 12 to 20 individuals, said Dr. Henry Leaumont, a California based astronomer who contacted this reporter after he was shown secret air Force documents relating to the find.

Carbon dating shows it crash landed at the base of the canyon around 2,000 B.C.

Cabin features suggest that the crew members were much like humans, although significantly smaller. They apparently breathed oxygen, guided their atom powered craft with a magnetic steering system and carried supplies of food and water on board.

According to reports filed by the scientific team, the spacecraft was lodged in limestone rubble at the base of the canyon not far from an area called Comanche Point.

A thorough inspection of the landing site revealed that the spacecraft's occupants left their ship and lived near it for a number of years after it crashed.

The finding proves the existence of a space alien colony on this planet nearly 3,500 years before Columbus!

This impression is confirmed by Indian cave paintings made at the time, the Air Force secret documents attest. The paintings, found near the crash site, show strange humanoid creatures with bulbous heads. Experts believe these creatures were the same aliens who arrived in the ancient UFO.

The secret report said all traces of alien occupation disappeared within 50 years or so of the crash date. There is no indication of what might have happened to the extraterrestrials, the documents reveal.

The ship is made of an extremely light metallic fiber, Dr. Leaumont said.

It measurers about 50 feet across at its widest point and it is 102 feet long. It's an incredible find - the latest in a series of artifacts collected secretly and hidden away in government UFO study centers.

There's a lot of official concern about keeping this latest discovery a secret. They've been covering up the truth about alien contacts for 50 years and they're not going to stop now. They want to study this thing, but they want it only for themselves.

Who knows what scientists might learn if they'd share this priceless find with the rest of the world?”

Shadow Animal or Skinwalker?

Skinwalker: (Wikipedia) is a person with the supernatural ability to turn into any animal he or she desires. Similar lore can be found in cultures throughout the world and is often referred to as shapeshifting by anthropologists.

Shadow person/animal: (Wikipedia) Are supernatural shadow-like figures of both modern folklore and paranormal popular culture that believers claim appear as dark humanoid (or animal) forms or evasive specters seen mostly in peripheral vision.

A friend and her significant other (we'll call them Jane and Joe), had an experience that so impressed me by their story, that I sat them down to get the details. This time I took notes instead of curling up with my feet tucked under me being spooked by the description. Here is their story:

It was July 2006. The couple was leaving the Grand Canyon Park to head south towards Williams for their hotel room. They were driving in a car, heading out the park entrance around 9:30 p.m. They were less than a mile from the park on this unusually chilly night. In front of them was an SUV perhaps 8 car lengths ahead. They saw the brake lights go off on the SUV and Jane warned Joe, who was driving. They both noted the SUV swerve into the oncoming lane as if something were in the roadway. 

Jane witnessed something very huge and black, taller than the SUV, its shoulder area seeming to be about even with the top of the SUV. They had only a couple seconds before they came up on the spot themselves. Joe swerved the car into the oncoming lane as he witnessed this huge black creature threateningly close to the car. As he did this, Jane in the passenger side looked up to this gigantic black mass. Its head was well above the height of the car and she caught its eyes as they passed by it. Her immediate reaction was one of impending doom and threat. She felt its massive size and power and felt completely inadequate in their car in comparison.

Joe slowed down, thinking of turning around, when he looked into the rear view mirror and saw the car behind him swerving the same way in the road, just missing this huge black…creature. Oddly, the lights of that car could create no detail on this black mass either.

They both continued down the road, confused and upset by the encounter. Later, they passed by some elk in a field and their car lights hit them and showing exactly what they were including the details and shapes of them and the foggy wisps of their cold breath from their flaring nostrils.

It wasn’t until Jane was describing the story to me that I realized some strange features. One was the SUV in front of them slammed on their brakes. Had those people seen this thing in their headlights in the distance, they would have braked slower. They didn’t see it, even with headlights, until they were upon it. Jane described a steep embankment near the roadway that seemed to have entrapped this thing, forcing it to follow the road to get out. At least, that was the sense of the situation. Also, their own headlights showed nothing more than a black mass. No color, no detail, no definition. Given that it was threatening their place in their lane, this creature should have been seen, as the elk had been seen by the headlights. As well, the size was exceptional. If a typical SUV is perhaps 6’ tall and the slope of what seemed to be shoulders was even with it, then that would make this creature perhaps over 7’ high! Jane commented several times about how massive and threatening it seemed.

What it was they saw that evening on the roadway, they’ll never know. The memory still haunts them as a singularly strange and eerie encounter. Whether it was a skinwalker or possibly some kind of shadow animal (like a shadow person) is unknown. The intriguing thing is how shadow people are caught out of the corner of your eye, you turn to see them and they’re described as completely black and solid-appearing without detail, and bring with them a sense of impending doom and threat. Similar, huh?
