Artist's Description

View large for full effect.

In northern Utah, there exists a ranch so strange, the National Institute for Discovery Science purchased it for research purposes. Located in the Uintah Basin near the town of Fort Duchesne, paranormal activities have been reported on the 480 acre ranch for hundreds of years.

Local Ute tribe will not enter the Skin Walker Ranch property. They discovered that the Ute Indians, who have lived in the area for thousands of years, believed the land to be cursed and plagued with mythical creatures called “Skin Walkers”. The Ute Indians referred to the 400 acre plot of land as the “path of the Skin Walker” and had referenced the land as such for hundreds of years.

The Utes take this very seriously.They think the Skin Walkers are powerful spirits that are here because of a curse that was put on them generations ago by the Navajos. And the center of the whole legend is this ranch. The Utes say the ranch is “the path of the Skin Walker.” Tribe members are strictly forbidden from setting foot on the property. It’s been that way for a long time.

For more on the Skin Walker Ranch I recommend:
Hunt For The Skin Walker by Colm A. Kelleher. PhD. and George Knapp

It has taken some time.
But I am happy to say my Skin Walker
has found his-her face.
