At the time this was happening, I told myself that no one will ever convince me that this did not happen, ever!

My wife and I were camped at a very remote site near the four cornors area. We had just set up camp when I noticed what appeared to be 5 round lights at the canyon rim, approx. 1/4 mile directly above us. I told my wife it looked like we had some "spotlighters" up there, and grabgbed my binoculars. I was surprised that I could only see round lighted objects, no vehicle. At that point two of these lights slowly moved above us and the other three slowly began to "float toward us just above the juniper/pinion trees. We jumped into the truck and headed up the only way out just as the objects were to the camp site. When we reached the rim of the canyon we could see many objects that seemed to "vibrate" as they moved just above the ground, around and over trees and the landscape. They appeared to have two sections, the bottom green, the top red, and had a white tube like section that hung from the bottom. (like a vacumn hose) Over the next approx. 5 miles we observed approx 50 of these. We came to a building that looked to be used only seasonally for cattle or the bean field workers and pulled up to see if anyone was there. I honked my horn and was starting to open my door when the windows of the bldg began to glow red. We took off again for the paved road, not stopping to see if there was anyone at a couple of other ranch houses we saw on the way in. As we approached the paved road, we could see a glowing red object just off the side of the road on my side. We passed it and stopped. I got my binoculars out and told my wife to shine the spotlight on it. When the light hit the object it sort of "exploded" and the main peice flew past my window. We were just sitting there wondering what was going on when my wife said a car was coming behind us. Very soon we knew it was far too bright to be auto lights. As I turned around and put the truck in gear my wife started to scream as we took off. I looked in the rear view mirror to see a round, very bright object, approx 30' in diameter, above an be! hind us.

For the next 10 miles it would drop back and then instantly be right behind us several times. I was going 80-90 mph down this narrow country road. We turned onto hwy 666 and headed towards Monticello, about 12 miles away. The object stayed with us until we were close to the highway patrol truck station outside of town. I skidded to a stop in front of the station and ran inside to tell them what had happened. They said they were having a hard time believing what I was saying but that a trucker had a very similiar story only a week before. They had decided that it must have been a helicopter, possibly with a flame thrower of some type, because paint was burned on the truck trailer and the trucker opened his window tolook and had recieved minor burns and hair burned off. I offered to take any test they wanted to prove I was not under the influence but they declined. I asked them to go with us to see for themselves and because we had left all of our gear where we were camped. They called the sherrif dept. and the sherrif, highway patrol and my truck headed back there. As you might expect, there was nothing there. Not one light.....nothing out of the ordinary. What could I say ? I asked them to stay up on the rim of the canyon long enough for me to retrive my gear. As we were throwing it into the truck, we could see them leaving. We drove up and out of the canyon and decided to find somewhere near the highway patrol station to get some sleep. The next day, around 10 am, we awoke, sitting up in the front of my truck, at the rim of the canyon where we first saw the lights. Neither of us remembered driving back to this spot. I asked my wife if she saw the big eyed deer that was looking in the windows of the truck at us. She did not. For two years my brother and I went back there several times and saw many of the same small luminous balls that seemed to follow us everywhere while we were in that area. After that we saw nothing out of the ordinary for several years that we returned to the area! . I hav en't been there for 10 years.
