These were clearly the forward-facing eyes of a predator, not an elk or deer. They glowed a menacing green in my flashlight beam.

"Wow, what is that?" I asked.

"I don't know," responded my traveling companion, "but it looks big."

Indeed. The creature was under a towering conifer farther down the valley. The lowest branches appeared to be about six feet off the ground, as is common for these trees. The animal's hulking figure rose nearly to the height of those branches.

"What are we going to do?"

I stood motionless, concentrating on keeping the thing in the flashlight beam. It had been a long hike, and now were were just a short ways from camp. The walls of the canyon were near-sheer at this point. There was no way around.

"There really isn't anything, bear or otherwise, that's going to stand it's ground once we start walking toward it," I said. 'Let's just move forward and see what it does."

We walked. The sinister glowing green eyes held their ground.

One step ... two steps ... three steps ...

Suddenly the tree was just in front of us -- not a towering conifer at all, but perhaps six feet tall. The trunk was barely as thick as my bicep. The sharp descent of the valley had given the illusion that it rose up nearly above the canyon walls.

There, standing beneath the low branches, terrorizing us with his fiery glowing green eyes and his panting pink tongue:

My sister and I were quite certain there was an evil beast in our closet one night when we were little girls. The darkness, the noises, the sheer terror!!!! Screaming for " MOOOOOOOM".... light came on... closet knob was pulled.... and out came the hideous beast that was terrorizing us.... purring and flicking his tail naunchalantly.

Like your story too! He looks so ominous!!!! lol
