Hello, I’m hoping to get some feedback on an experience I had nearly 30 years ago. I can’t say exactly why I waited so long to seek feedback except that it was nearly 30yrs ago, there weren’t near the resources then, if there were, I wasn’t aware of them and this isn’t a subject I felt I could talk to just anyone about without feeling I’d be thought of as a lunatic.

I was 20yrs old at the time and lived off the North fork in Tampico, WA. I worked the swing shift 20+ miles from my home in Tampico. I made the long drive every single night at the same time (between 11:30 and 1am) and had never experienced anything like this prior to or since. In case you aren’t familiar with the area, there used to be a stop sign off of Ahtanum road when you arrive in Tampico. There was/is a little convenience store almost directly in front of the stop sign, maybe to the left a slight bit. At the stop sign, you can turn left, to go up the South fork, or turn right to go up the North fork.

This particular evening as I began slowing down and pulled up to the stop sign, I looked to my left to see if any cars were coming, I didn’t see a single car on the road but what I did see instantly overwhelmed me with fear like I had never felt before. I felt like I was seeing something that I absolutely wasn’t supposed to see. There were 3 very large, approximately 15ft tall, round objects. All blocking the road to the south fork. I’m pretty sure I would not have been able to drive up the South fork if I needed to. Needless to say, I didn’t stop at the stop sign that night. I slowly continued on my way and took a slight right and drove up the North fork to my home. I didn’t see any lights on/in/around these objects. I didn’t see any humans or other lifeforms around the objects. They were all 3 different colors, but I don’t remember now what colors they were. There was absolutely nothing going on around them that I could see, just dark and silent. I remember thinking I shou! ld go home and wake my Mom and bring her back with me to get a better look but it was only a passing thought. I was too afraid something would happen to her.

The next morning I had to fill in for someone so had to be back to work first thing in the morning. I was afraid to drive back by the area but it was light out by this time so I was a little more at ease. I anxiously wanted to see the objects in the light but when I drove back by the area around 5/6AM, they were gone. There was no sign of anything strange ever being there. I wish I had more info to provide. It wasn’t until years later that I realized these objects had to of somehow flown in there. I’m not sure how that would be possible but they were so large that there’s no other way they could have gotten there, or left in such a short amount of time.

I don’t remember the rest of my drive home after seeing these things. This is all I remember, unfortunately. My Mom did tell me that I woke her up when I got home and told her about what I had seen.

If there’s anything you can tell me that might possibly help me to comprehend what I saw that night, I will be forever grateful.

Thank you for your time.
