Stains in the Sediment
It was during researching Grand Canyon Escalade: Descend into the Underworld it was discovered through a newspaper article explorer G.E. Kinkaid stumbled upon strange “stains in the sediment” above a cave whereupon he landed his boat, made his way up the side of the canyon, walked past steps and found the entrance to an underground city. It was reported by the Arizona Gazette on April 5, 1909, Kinkaid and his partner Prof. S. A. Jordan, found an immense underground dwelling place part of which was believed to be a ceremonial crypt where there were “mummies none of which measured less than 9 feet” all of them were wrapped in dark linen.
Throughout history, myths, legends, and even the Holy Bible there is mention of races of giants. Some reports claim these were cannibals feeding upon the ancient people who inhabited the lands something pointed out in The Anasazi Legend: Where did they go? Why it is G.E. Kinkaid was looking at stains in the sediment when making the discovery remains as mysterious as the man himself who was rumored to be working for the Smithsonian Institute at the time but was nonetheless a very good clue which led to other discoveries. It was at this point the question then arose, “Why would there be stains in the sediment above a cave? Did this possible clue to a mystery occur at other locations like the Sedona/Verde Valley region?
Out of curiosity, soon a little research was conducted about this strange phenomenon, which needless to say, netted some surprising results and a gave a clear indication there was a mystery at hand. What made it even more fascinating was how fast the results started to materialize which showed the strange phenomenon was happening right here in the Verde Valley specifically at numerous locations of caverns in the Sedona area.
To find the same type of phenomenon of “stains in the sediment” above entrances to caves right here in the Verde Valley was not only odd but rather downright interesting. It must be duly noted records indicate for some reason in 1909 Kinkaid felt strong enough to risk his life traveling on rapids in a wooden boat battling down the Colorado River to investigate these mysterious “stains in the sediment” as he specifically called them.
Another important factor to consider is when a person takes a good look at the actual location of some of these strange stains there isn’t anything found above the dark streaks that appear able to cause the discoloration. A close examination establishes there is no dark material above the cliff rock that could possibly be running down to cause the phenomena. This fact makes the mystery rather questionable. What in the world could possibly be making these markings?
National Park Service doesn’t track Missing Persons
Out of curiosity people wander into many areas, and of these places, some are frankly spooky, and it's easy to see why there are so many ways to disappear. David Paulides, a cryptozoologist with a law enforcement and investigative background, chronicled allegedly preternatural disappearances in or near national parks in the book, Missing 411 - Western United States & Canada: Unexplained Disappearances of North Americans that have never been solved. Missing 411 is actually a series of books, and soon to be feature documentary, about people who have disappeared in the wilds of North America. It’s understood that people routinely get lost, some want to disappear, but these cases are unusual. The books chronicle children, adults and the elderly who disappeared, sometimes in the presence of friends and relatives. Additionally, he claimed this is not a phenomenon that has been occurring in just the last few decades stating clusters of missing people have been identified as far back as the 1800’s.
What Paulides discovered through research is its almost as if something/someone is watching waiting for the right opportunity to take people when they are alone and the National Park Service claims it doesn’t keep track of missing persons. Therefore nobody really knows what the true number of people who go missing in the parks is, even when people have been vanishing without a trace from the national parks and forests, yet government agencies for some mysterious reason have been saying nothing. Paulides portrayed the National Park Service as secretive and corrupt who do not want to be very transparent with the facts or accountable for all the people going missing on public lands each year.
Todd Matthews, Director of Case Management and Communications for NamUs has reportedly stated:
“[National] parks are complicated. People wander into these areas, and there are so many places, and so many ways you can disappear,”
For some odd reason, it seems the people who do go missing at state parks and rural forest areas it is reported when they are found and finally recovered the body is found with the person having their face buried down in the ground over 90% of the time indicating they passed trying to hide from something while being very frightened. Sometimes the people are found alive as well unconscious with their face buried in the ground with no recollection of anything. Attacks by animals were excluded and according to David Paulides whats is causing the strange vanishings isn’t human.
The Missing 411 information clearly shows there is something unfolding in the forests in North America that are occurring under an eerie set of similar circumstances where people are and have been vanishing without a trace. The fact the government and mainstream media are apparently trying to cover up this fact is a great indication there is something strange and disturbing at hand.
Stains in the Sediment
According to one local tour guide in the Sedona, Arizona area, the odd red stains are said to be an edible fungus the Native Americans call desert paint or tapestry. Of course, there are many religious practices of the Native Americans and the beings they worship which is simply unknown and misunderstood after their beliefs were essentially exterminated something outlined in more detail in the Camp Verde Historic Vortex. Today many of the Native Americans practices continue to be practiced in secret and kept hidden in places where nobody but them are allowed.
Why it is the red stain likes to concentrate together and then run down the walls of cliffs like blood would specifically outside of these caverns more than other places raises some questions. Then for whatever mysterious reason, the stains appear to be gathering at certain locations some of which have the oddest names like Devils Bridge. Why does this bridge have such an odd name with strange red stains running down the sediment is very mysterious but seems to perhaps be very telling almost like a clue. Another detail to consider as well is how the phenomena does not appear to be happening at locations where there is a heavy concentration of people or structures around.
What do we know about Giants?
The Giants were are told are the offspring of Angels who were according to legend shapeshifting beings who could look like a Phoenix enflamed one minute, a person the next, or even become an animal like a Wolf something outlined in Sedona Skinwalker: Ancient Wolf Pack the next. These beings according to the Bible in the book of Mathew are said to be returning in the last days and were said to eat human flesh. Almost all ancient writings like the Dead Sea scrolls, Book of Giants, the Book of Enoch and others, all talk about those who descend from heaven known as the fallen ones who somehow created giant beings who at the time consumed humanity. Of course when you hear the word giant many automatically assume this means a 9-30 foot tall humanoid when there are other forms of the term as well like for example Walmart is a giant or the US Government and let’s not forget about the military industrial complex who is rumored to have a major establishment within the Verde Valley for many years with secret military bases. Nevertheless; be assured when giants are found what can only happen next is genetic experimentation and modification.
If in fact there was a city of giants found close by in the Grand Canyon, and there is plenty of evidence to indicate there was then perhaps it's worth noting. It appears there was indeed something found in a cave at the Grand Canyon location which was apparently enough to want someone to develop the site into a booming enterprise. The Grand Canyon Escalade: Descend into the Underworld completely establishes in many ways how the public is not being told the truth about what was found inside the cave in 1909 or today. The fact there was recently a 200 million dollar project in such an odd area on tribal land that would have a 1.6-mile gondola tram ride dropping 3,200 feet into the Canyon, taking visitors from rim to river in about 10 minutes down into to what was once called a “gateway to the underworld” in the ancient past by the Native Americans and G.E. Kinkaid should speak volumes giving some credit to what was originally reportedly found. Nobody would be attempting to build a casino and other enterprises in just any cave. Luckily, the project was reportedly halted for the time being. The truly odd thing is how somebody took the time to fly helicopters in and out of the Grand Canyon cave G.E. Kinkaid said he found as originally reported by the Arizona Gazette.
The Grand Canyon is by far one of the most beautiful places on planet Earth which holds mysteries that cannot be explained like some of the gripping accounts of myths, lore, disappearances, and fatal deaths at the most famous of the World’s Seven Natural Wonders. Besides being known as one of the most beautiful places the area is also said to be one of the deadliest places on Earth according to Grand Canyon expert Michael Ghiglieri who has spent a total of seven years of his life there. There’s a whole spectrum of ways to get caught up making errors in judgment at the Grand Canyon. Numerous visitors have fallen from the giant rim on the canyon when careless posing for photos. Outside of falls off the rim, most deaths and disappearances occur when people go off trail. Throughout the Grand Canyon, ancient ruins of various cultures can be found in abundance estimated able to house 1000’s. Over the years there have been lots of treasure hunters many of these gold prospectors who went into the canyon and never came out.
In the 1990s, Mount Everest took half as many lives with a tiny fraction of the number of visitors compared to the Grand Canyon. According to Ghiglieri and Thomas Myers’s encyclopedic account of canyon fatalities, “Over the Edge,” many people lost their lives at the canyon due to falls and heat accounting for an estimated 25-50% percent of recorded deaths. There have been more than a few baffling disappearances of tourists at the park. In June of 2016, Floyd Roberts vanished shortly after taking a slightly different route than his hiking companions. Hauntingly, during the subsequent search it was reported the man’s voice could be heard in the distance yelling “help,” but the sound could never be pinpointed until it finally went away.
The people guarding the National Parks collect visitor money which goes to the Federal government who afterward return a controlled budget back to the Park Service. It is estimated over five million people are visiting the Grand Canyon each year bringing in a considerable amount of money, therefore, to have statistics available regarding all the deaths and disappearances happening very well may be bad for public relations in this case. Nevertheless, for some mysterious reason, despite numerous attempts, the Park Service does not want the information made available to the public.
Specialists who have worked in the Grand Canyon for years exploring, researching, and leading tours, universally have agreed that the Lost City of Giants does not exist. However, there is also other evidence like strange Egyptian hieroglyphs to show that it very well may indeed which can only mean there must be something else to this mystery then what the public has been told.
Since the national and state park service has denied the actual numbers of missing persons each year to the public we are left to formulate the data ourselves.
Topography does play a part into the age of the victims and certain clusters have specific age and sex consistency that is baffling. It’s the young and elderly who tend to be vanishing the most leaving those between 30-50 the safest by the numbers.
This is not a phenomenon that has been occurring in just the last few decades, clusters of missing people have been identified as far back as the 1800s. How many people go missing each year in the United States? According to USA Today who did an article titled By the numbers: Missing persons in the USA 750,000 people cases are reported on average each year in the US. According to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), in 2010 531,928 were under the age of 18 and 355,243 women were reported missing compared to 337,660 men. Arizona is a top state for most missing person cases according to the Huffington Post. From the Huffington Post data Arizona joins Alaska next to the top 15 states with the dubious distinction of having most open missing persons cases per 100,000 people. Arizona even has an annual Missing in Arizona Day to try and help families desperately looking to find their loved ones.
According to AZ Central Arizona joined Alaska in having more than 10 open missing-persons cases per 100,000 people. When you start to do the numbers each year over 4+ million people travel from all over the world to see the Grand Canyon and Sedona region. Most of the visitors to these areas have to travel to get to these unique destinations giving rise to a rather larger gap for people to come up missing. Add the 4 million visitors with the 7 million people who live in the state using AZ Central’s formula of 10 cases per 100,000 and you get over 1100 reported missing-person cases a year.
If there is indeed a valid connection between the stains and cave entrances then it is something which will have to be further studied. The biggest question is why would there be stains resembling dried blood on the outside of these caverns, more specifically close by in the Grand Canyon where a city of giants was reportedly found?
There are those who claim the original “Indian Wars” were not between the U.S. Calvary and Native-American tribes but was between the Indian settlers and the original Native Americans: giant cannibals. According to oral tradition, legends and lore thousands of years ago, giants roamed the West who ferociously terrorized the early native settlers. Native American tribes still speak of ancient days when their ancestors were forced to fight desperate battles against giants—some towering from 9-12 feet tall or taller–that roamed the land viciously attacking people and carrying them off for food. This very well may be why Tuzigoot National Monument and Montezuma Castle both were specifically built as battlements from someone or something. Indeed there must have been a very good reason to risks the lives of the elderly, women and children, to travel up 100 feet of primitive ladders each day in an area having no natural predators to warrant the risk.
According to various historical sources which include the Nag Hammadi manuscripts said to be scriptures of the ancient mystical tradition commonly called Gnosticism, from the Greek gnosis, that is, secret knowledge, humans are food to something, something not commonly taught for within the text it clearly states:
“Maneaters will grab and consume us and they will enjoy themselves like a fisherman who is casting a hook and line in the water like a fisherman.”
Also found in the Nag Hammadi: The Gospel of Philip it clearly states:
“God is a man-eater. For this reason, men are sacrificed to him. Before men were sacrificed, animals were being sacrificed, since those to whom they were sacrificed were not gods.”
There are some people who claim the Gnostic texts are the writing of fallen Angels who according to legend had offspring that were said to be cannibals. Nevertheless; one must ponder what does it mean to be fished and consumed by maneaters? Best not to find out! Let’s hope the dark red stains really are just a fungus growing with seasonal running water brought by the rains which are most likely what is occurring at the Sedona/Verde Valley locations in my personal opinion thus far. If not, it just may be a good idea to learn more about the possible location of whatever is said to be feasting on humanity in order to help others not become consumed. It appears these legendary maneaters don’t want anyone knowing anything about them or who they truly are having daylight masters who were quick in the past and present to usher away the truth as soon as it was exposed such as the Smithsonian Institute has been rumored to do for many years.
Could the strange stains be the sign of something supernatural? Is there something else happening at these locations? It's odd this phenomenon is happening at all little lone at other locations in Arizona found specifically above caverns where there are ancient ruins where people just up and disappeared leaving everything behind as in the Anasazi legends. Perhaps the ancient people saw the strange stains as a sign to invite habitation which they liked over others caves with no markings. Nevertheless; let there be no doubt there is a mystery at hand when it comes to the stain in the sediment which in the past led to some pretty interesting discoveries. Further clues to what could possibly creating these mysterious stains can be found in Verde Valley Bigfoot: The Missing 411.
