Amber lights on trail .

In the woods along a trail in Bellingham, WA (connecting to Alabama St). I was almost to Alabama st, coming from the direction of Haggen on the trail. It started with a bright ORANGE (amber) light (like a fire ball) way down the trail. This was about three am back in August of 2005. I thought what I was seeing was another person or(two to three people -I thought) with head lamps on their heads (looked like a ball of fire or orb of light 6" wide -from way down the trail). I was by myself and thought -I'll walk towards the lights, they were @ the same level as a person walking on the trail... but way down about a 1/4 mile from me. I walked towards the lights and they became blurred -the closer I got, the more they became one light.

The lights were gone when I got to where I thought they'd be -couldn't find them on the trail. I went to the left of the trail, over a slight levee like hill that runs along the trail and there it was in the middle of a field.

What I saw was a beam of plasma lights in a column (went every other beam was yellow and then orange -yellow, then orange) The column was 1 1/2ft wide and 30ft from the ground to the sky (vertical in shape) and it went every other beam, ea. beam about 1 1/2 inches wide and 30ft long -all condensed (fit tightly together) -no spaces between the beams of plasma or lasers.

-orange and yellow plasma beams of light all bound up in a tight column reaching 30ft into the sky and touching the earth (the column was about 1 1/2 ft wide -I believe it was plasma beams of light, yet I don't know -I was afraid to go near it or touch it) I think it was scanning the ground.

The whole column of light(s) was slowly rotating clockwise. {About fifteen ft up (some of the beams) while still attached in the middle would fan out about 3 ft from the base of the light (as if scanning).} I could not see where the lights were emanating from as if that part were not visible to my eyes but I feel there was something more.

What I don't know was WHY or HOW I had even been up at that hour or how I had even been walking on that trail that night.

Whatever it was I was seeing frightened me. I as far as I know only watched the lights for about 45 seconds... then crept backwards to the trail, and walked very quickly home. (Home was about 2 miles from the incident -@ that time I lived at the top of Alabama hill) I kept looking back -and even up to make sure whatever it was? Was not after me.

I told one person, my bf what happened when I got home my bf was asleep, to this day I don't know if he believes me. I remember it like yesterday. I strangely, remember NOTHING before it happened or why I was there -in the middle of the night. For some reason -I was walking down the trail and I don't know why -I should have been asleep (I was dressed in a shirt and shorts and had a backpack w/me).

I reported this before somewhere on line (may have been here) but feel this is a more complete account of the occurrence. There may be more that happened. Perhaps one day I will recall the whole incident. I no longer live in Bellingham. One other odd thing is that sometimes I feel as thought if I were to go there to the site where I saw the incident that it could happen again. I've been told I talk loudly in my sleep and have nightmares which I've never recalled. I think I'm fine and am not scared of anything (so far). I don't mind being contacted by an investigator. I don't need to prove it to anyone -I know it was real. I could submit a illustration of what I saw if requested. I did draw a picture of it a while back (can re draw it).
