Onion Mountain (Blue Creek) John Green Cast
In August of 1967, John Green cast an old track he found on a dirt road running between Blue Creek and Onion Mountain. It soon became labeled the Blue Creek Mt cast. He wrote of it in some of his earlier publications.
Here was a cast that had many ridges running in circular formations all over it, showing all the signs of friction ridges found on all primate feet and hands. John made a statement once about seeing these lines in an actual track but later corrected this by saying that one night while there (northern California) he was called over to a track by some of his companions and by flashlight saw ridges in its sole. He thought – Oh No! Someone is faking these tracks with wooden feet. The misconception about all of this was the name given the track and cast – Blue Creek Mt. – when years later he realized that the shadows in pictures placed these tracks closer to Onion Mt, so the name was changed. This didn’t make front-page news but did confuse people who were studying it. The ridges he witnessed that night was also assumed to have been in the bottom of the track producing this cast. It was not. (cryptomundo)
