The Strange Story

I guess we all have mysteries in our lives and this was the mystery in our friend's life. Many years ago our friends owned a resort on Upper Post Lake in Wisconsin. They had bought this beautiful resort from his grandmother. It was a beautiful place in the north woods many liked to spend their summer vacation at the resort. They often had families who came when grandma owned it.

There was a main house and in around it along the lake were pretty little cabins. We often went to visit them and once while we were there they told us a story about something which had happened during the week. The story was about the strange scary incident at the lake. They were upset over it.

Resort Family

They told us a story about a family who came every year to stay in one of the cabins. It was a woman, Nancy, her brother, Jack, and her two young children. (NAMES HAVE BEEN CHANGED)

One day her brother's friends came up for a visit. They had all been up and around the lake earlier in the evening with the kids playing in the water. That night as it got late Nancy and the kids went off to bed. Jack and his friends stayed up to play cards.

While they were playing cards they were also fishing from the front of the cottage. They just put their poles out and would go outside and check them every little bit. The lake could be seen out the front window of the cottage.

Fishing

Jack decided to go out and check the fishing poles. He would go out the back door and walk around the side of the cabin to the front where the lake was. As he went out the door he heard voices. He couldn't make out what they were saying, but in his head he thought it was some of the people staying at the resort. It wasn't unusual for people to be out at night, maybe sitting around camp fires or fishing.

When Jack turned the corner to head to the front of the cabin, he saw the three beings and they were not earthlings. They shined bright so he could see them clearly and they were carrying on a conversation. The words couldn't be understood. They floated a little off the ground. It took just seconds for Jack to run. He ran in the cottage told his friends and woke his sister, scared and upset. They all went out to find out who was there, by this time the strange shiny beings were gone. There wasn’t a sign of them. The lake was clear and quiet.

Heading Home

The next day the family packed up and left the cottage, earlier than they should have. Our friends were shocked and couldn't understand why the family had left.

Later they got a phone call from Nancy. She told the story of the strange beings. The shocker was Nancy had taken pictures of Jack and his friends playing cards. Behind their heads was a window which faced the lake and in the window was a UFO floating just above the lake. They could only explain it as being sort of cigar shaped. Nancy said they would not be back.

They never did come back to the resort and our friends never saw anything unusual around the resort after that. This happened at a time when there had been UFO sightings in this area. Our friends aren't the kind to tell stories like this. This incident happened many years ago in the 70s.

Sightings:

Friends told us these stories. While they were out snowmobiling one night they saw a bright light land up the trail in front of them. They took off and didn't check to make sure what they saw. I would have hide and checked it out. One was a cop and he just ran.

There was a logger who saw strange lights in the woods. When he checked the next day, in a clearing there was a large round spot with dead burned grass. The spots had not been there the day before.

I wouldn't say it was common, but often the sightings in this area are by the lakes. There's something about the lakes UFO's like.

I believe in UFOs because I have seen them. I wish we all knew why they are here. Maybe someday we will find out and we may not like it. You can read my hub stories on what I have sighted.

UFO's have often been seen over the great lakes. Youtube is full of videos about these sightings.

Reading about this incident & actually experiencing it are 2 very different things. I believe I would not have left so abruptly but possibly try to investigate further. A mysterious happening such as this would surely peak my curiosity.

There are so many, many people with similar stories of possible UFO sightings, it warrants more research. It doesn't appear the alleged aliens have intentions to harm us.

This is a topic worth studying.

I always find mysteries so intriguing. I have seen a lot of strange things over the years, and I have read about even more that were really creepy. I think it's great you have written about this. It helps some of the rest of us to know we're not crazy. I think it's hard to talk or write about things like this because so many people make out like a person is losing it. I don't think everyone is losing it, and an awful lot of people seem to have seen some very strange things. Sharing this on HP.

Hope all is well with you Moonlake. Take care . . .

As Paul Kuehn, said, "I won't believe in them and ETs until I see them. Paul's a great writer and I have had the pleasure of corresponding a bit with him. I felt the same as Paul ---- until I did see something unexplainable. It happened about 20 years ago and the incident convinced me that just about anything is possible: even the impossible. Great hub Moonlake. Keep 'em coming.

moonlake,

This is a really interesting story and something you would expect to see in a "Twilight Zone" program. I suppose it is possible to have UFOs visit the earth, but I won't believe in them and ETs until I see them. Voted up as interesting and sharing with followers. Also Pinning, Tweeting, and sharing on Facebook.

rajan jolly, We were often at the resort but weren't there when this happened. It is a strange story for sure. We have seen UFOs so we know they exist but we don't know what they are or where they're from. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Am sure that we are not the only inhabited planet in the entire universe. And if others are visiting us...they would obviously be more advanced then us. Considering how we act with one another...they probably view us as a very war-like and primitive society. This was an interesting hub. Voted that and up.

I believe there is something out there because I have seen strange sightings, that I had no explanation for. Your right we have to be pretty arrogant to think it's just us. Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate your comments.

Very interesting hub. I don't know if I believe in the little grey space aliens from TV, but there has to be more out there than just us. I always thought it was kind of arrogant that we could feel we were alone in space. Must have been creepy to be up at the lake when this happened. Thanks for sharing!

Au fait, There are strange things going on all around us. People see things everyday and don't mention it to anyone. There are stories out there no one has heard about. Someday we may hear the truth. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment and a vote.

Interesting story. Amazing how many people have seen strange things that couldn't be explained, including me. Wonder when our government is going to come clean about what all these strange things are?

Voted up and interesting!

Alastar Packer, I don't think he saw a clear face he was so scared all he wanted to do was get out of there. Your right we have heard of them going into the lakes around here. Whe we saw UFOs it was when we lived on a lake. Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my hub.

It would be interesting to know what the entities looked like. UFOs are often spotted around bodies of water as well. More than likely they were benevolent or neutral in their intentions--dis-info has been put out about them for so long now its no surprise folks freak on seeing them.

shiningirisheyes, That is true there has to be others and maybe there are others just like us that can't get very far off their world because they are no smarter than we are. The smart ones are the ones we see arrive here and I guess we just have to hope they're friendly.

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my hub.

How narrow-minded and self righteous we are to assume that we are all that exists in the galaxy.

Great write

pagesvoice, Oh yes, I think there are strange happenings around water. As in my UFO hub about what we saw on the lake. Thanks, so much for coming by I appreciate it.

There certainly are a lot of unexplained occurrences in our world. Of course, things seem a little eerier on or around water in the evening as well. Whatever these people saw, it scared them so bad they never came back to the resort. I too have seen unexplained lights in the night sky. Who knows what really is out there?

I have never had an experience, but I do believe that there has to be other beings out there somewhere. Who are we to think that we are the only ones in this universe or that we are the most advanced. Great story, voted up and interesting! Have a great day! :)

Great story Moonlake. I know I'm not alone when I say there is life out there somewhere. Too many stories about UFO's with too muchh information to be false. No one ever said man was the only one in the world. Voted up and interesting.

Dolores Monet, That could be they were enjoying the view. I would not have run away and stayed away like you said it wasn't likely they would have ran into the Ets again. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Funny but I am more impressed with the adorable cabins on the beautiful lake. I don't think I'd let them extraterrestrials chase me away from such a heavenly spot. Maybe the ETs were just enjoying the view!

Amethystraven, Funny abduct don't probe. Thanks so much for coming by. I also wouldn't mind the abduct part as long as it was fun.


Amethystraven profile image

Amethystraven 4 years ago from California

To both Bob and Moon, I always say I wouldn't mind being abducted, just don't probe me. Not that I'd really have a choice in the matter though :-) The stories on the Discovery Chanel and the Learning Chanel all suggest probing is very painful. I wouldn't mind visiting with otherworldly beings. I am curious and want to know what the Universe offers as far as other life. It's on my bucket list to travel the globe. For me, seeing with my own eyes is believing. So for now I am a skeptic/believer until I actually see them in person. I love Learning and the curious part of me wants to know what we as a human race can learn from them.

dmop, Thanks so much for stopping by and telling your story. We had friends that were out snowmobiling when a bright light came down right in front of them. They were so spooked they took off and never found out what it was. I agree who knows what's really out there.

dmop 4 years ago from Cambridge City, IN

I found this story very intriguing. I watched a strange light in the sky above my woods nearly every night for about a year. I tried to record it and take pictures but they never came out. I did bring my kids and girlfriend out to witness it a few times, and we all agree it was strange and out of place. Through my binoculars it looked like it had red, blue, and green lights flashing around it. It just stopped appearing one night and I haven't seen it since. Who knows what is really out there in the vastness of space, I just hope they are friendly.

That is a very interesting and a little bit frightening story. Its hard to believe that there are not other life forms when you think of the vastness of the universe. I'm glad you shared this story. Up and awesome.

Fascinating hub and what a scary experience - maybe they were, as some suggest, smoking something, but that hardly explains why the camera caught a UFO and I don't think the family would have reacted as they did - leaving quickly - just because they thought their imagination had been 'tripped' by some pot.

I wonder if one or more members of this family had ever had experiences similar to 'abduction'? It would explain why the UFO was there at that time, following the family, but hadn't been seen around by others? Or it could just be a place that was involved with one of the many UFO flaps from the 70's and this guy Jack just happened to be a witness. Whatever the reason, this was a fascinating account. Voted up.

Cardisa 4 years ago from Jamaica

Because of my culture I don't believe in UFOs as in aliens from outer-space but I do believe in UFOs as in unexplained spiritual happenings. That was some experience with that family. I guess if it was more recent that resort would be very popular as people would be clamouring to see the place the UFO was sighted.

Well....Moon. Sounds like someone was inhaling more than woodsmoke up in them thar wild parts.

Interesting yarn, though.

Bob

To amethys above. No one in his right mind believe there are no other "life forms" in the universe, but most of those folks don't see any evidence they're here yet.

Diogenes was a sceptic, too

Thank you for sharing. This is a very interesting hub. I don't believe we are alone in this vast universe. The question though, is are the others friendly? Are they helpers and healers or are they here to hurt us?
