Came across this bizarre story about the "night crawlers" that come out and roam the area. They appear to be weird figures with just 2 long stick legs and a head. Could be hoaxers too but is an interesting and different paranormal subject. There are totems of these supposed beings in the woods as well.

only night crawlers our parks have are pot farmers, well organized well armed mexican gangsters who pay off the rangers to say there are no pot farms in our parks.

That's really weird. They totally look and act like a person in a loose lightweight fabric suit on stilts.
I have several friends who a stilt walkers and that's exactly how thier costume pants move.
BUT....
They are short and skinny.
If the footage is real, very strange...
But it could have been doctored. Shrink the walkers and put into another video.
I could see someone wanting to have fun with a local legend.
Fresno is just an hour away from Yosemite. Would not be hard to do one 'sighting' close to home and then wait and see what comes of it and then wait a while and head out further away for a second 'sighting'.
BUT
Most hoaxers are not all that smart or patient....
Very odd.

Well I got those familiar spooky-heebie-geebies watching the vids.

You know what they make me think of? A description of supposed indimensional beings Carlos Castaneda encountered while attempting to connect to higher consciousness while dreaming... he told the story in the book The Art of Dreaming. That's exactly how he described "them".

I didn't finish the book as it seemed too "new age hokey" for me. Maybe I should give it another chance... or maybe that's where hoaxers got their idea?

Sorry, I call Hoax. Reminds me of Marilyn Manson in Beautiful People video. It is kind of a neat affect though.

It seems that way. But at least they came up with something original. Instead of the usual lights attached to balloons released at night.

That's exactly what I thought.

I have a pair of drywall stilts and when I use them, I have the same strange loping gait.

The only thing weird about the videos is that they appear to be walking down an incline. Kinda difficult on stilts.

I don't think you could replicate that movement in the real world. Either it's digital, or it's legit. And whoever made it (if it is digital) is a animation genius. That movement is so... alien, yet so natural looking.

Talking Night "Stalkers"

I think Duran Duran said it best...."Girl's on Stilts"... maybe it was "Girl's on film" I dunno..

The show Fact or Faked did an episode on a night crawler video, I think in its first season.
