Smelly White Humanoid Spooks Campers at Monjeau Lookout Near Ruidoso, NM

3 servicemen are camping at Monjeau Lookout outside of Ruidoso, New Mexico when they encounter an odorous white humanoid that is circling them in the adjoining trees.

The following account was recently forwarded to me:

"Two of my friends and I used to be stationed at Ft. Bliss in El Paso, TX and we decided a Memorial Day camping weekend would be a good idea; so we took a trip up to Monjeau Peak outside of Ruidoso, NM. We planned to stay for 3 nights, the first two of which were very relaxing. On our first day there when were were deciding where to set up our tent we found loads of bones from various animals, not mounded up or anything like they were collected, just bones all around the campsite. The campsite had 5 places to pitch tents over about 300 square meters. We decided to pitch our tents on the highest point at the campsite, about 30-40 feet higher elevation than the parking lot.

On the third night, it was well after sunset when all noise from the woods died out. I'm not sure how long it was silent before me and my friends broached the subject. But it wasn't long after that that the hair on the back of my neck started to stand, followed by goosebumps all over. I could see my friends starting to get jittery and from one of the other campsites we heard their two dogs going absolutely ape sh*t. These were very relaxed and happy dogs for the last two days. We had also made decent acquaintances with the couple who had the dogs and they had lunch with us on day two. The other 2 groups that were camping at the same time had gone silent as well.

The car was about 60m from our campsite and we unanimously decided to go get our guns (AR-15's and 9mm pistols). On our way back we started to smell a rotting, fetid stench. I don't know if anyone has ever had to burn feces before, but it smelled like that mixed with death. It was cloying and felt like it was almost physical it was so strong. We got back to our campsite, and decided to post guard all through the night. One man up and two asleep, or at least resting. I volunteered for the first shift because I knew I wasn't getting any rest at all.

We had plenty of firewood for the night, especially because we were leaving the next morning. I kept the fire blazing as much as I could because I figured that if it was some sort of animal it wouldn't be too interested in messing with me. I kept my back to the fire so I could maintain good night vision. The forest to the southwest of our campsite was pretty burnt out, but what you cant see very well is the elevation change. Once you got into the tree line it was very steep, not impassable by any means; but not somewhere you need to be walking at night. Behind the trees I notice a stark white shape. I shouldered my rifle and it didn't move at all.

I assumed it was a tree partially hidden tree behind another one. I started scanning the treeline with a flashlight because I felt the stench was stronger than it was before. As my beam passed over what I thought was the obscured tree I saw eye shine from the white shape, as soon as I registered what I was seeing it disappeared behind the tree. I debated investigating but instead just roused my friends, and we scanned together. When my shift ended I took off my rain fly on my tent so I could see out if needed. I didn't see anything on my next shift, just the smell.

In the morning, just before dawn broke the smell seemed to recede but only so much, almost like it left a scent as a warning was the impression that I got. We broke camp and started packing up. About halfway through our breakdown we saw the other three groups packing up as well. I went over and talked to the couple with the dogs, asking them if they saw anything last night, or if their dogs calmed down after the barking stopped. They told me that even when they stopped barking the dogs didn't sleep. They spent the night whining and growling in the direction of the hill to the southwest." CE
