My thesis project requires me to travel to various terrains in California. As part of one of my weekly objectives, I traveled the northern leg covering parts of the Klamath River that enters California through Oregon, Lava Beds National Monument, Lassen Volcanic National Park and McArthur-Burney Falls State Park. Along the way, I camped in Sims Flats Campground an affiliate of the US Forestry Services in Siskiyou County.
Dunsmuir County is considered a historic site and also once a victim of California's worst hazardous chemical spill (Metham Sodium). A train carrying soil fumigant had derailed and spilled into the river run off of Shasta Mountain. Parts of the town supposedly still suffer from post chemical contamination. Much of the natural flora and fauna were affected and is only now(10 years later) recovering.
The campground that I settled in was empty. It was rather remote, and I assumed during that time of the year, at 2 - 5 degrees Celsius. It was not ideal for use. I set up right beside the river. Fire was not permitted in this site, so it was pitch black with the exception of moon lighting. Like most camp sites I have occupied, it was fairly quiet.
Oddly enough sometime around 1:00 pm, I started to hear a strange moaning sound that I had never heard before. It did not sound like an animal or animal movement. It could have been my eyes playing tricks on me, especially in the dark, but I could almost make out a blurry figure within the water several feet away from me. Swaying back and forth along the river banks, it looked almost like a human searching for something in the water. Not wanting to disturb or give away my location (this was supposedly bear country), I silently watched for fifteen minutes until it disappeared back into the darkness of the deep forest.

My mother and I were driving north from Southern California to Portland, Oregon. It was about 2:30 am and my mom was falling asleep at the wheel so we decided to pull over into the next town to get a little sleep in the car.
