About five miles east of Blairsville, Georgia in Union County is Track Rock Gap. The anthropoligist James Mooney, who wrote the book "Myths of the Cherokee" recalls that the Cherokee called this place Datsu'nalasgun-yi. There are a number of soapstone rocks on a trail through the gap and these rocks are covered by petroglyphs. Moooney also mentions that the Cherokee give another meaning to the name of this place-where the tracks are.
Bigfoot researchers are of the opinion that Track Rock Gap is a place where Indians recorded their experiences with Sasquatch. One Bigfoot investigator from the North Georgia area makes mention that natives had the habit of recording what they saw around them, an explanation for petroglyphs and rock drawings in Indian territories. The drawings at Track Rock Gap are no exception. It has been said by some that the drawings at Track Rock Gap are simply historical records of natives and their observation of Sasquatch in the area. There are indeed stories and legends among the Cherokees that give some credence to the idea that Cherokees in the area had come in to contact with strange animals that could be Sasquatch. One such legend is that of Tsul'Kalu, also called Jutaculla/Judaculla.
This is quite an interesting theory. Much research has been done around Track Rock Gap, and several Sasquatch sighting databases turn up reports and sightings in the area. This summer, I plan to visit the area for a few days. I hope to get some pictures of those rocks, and whatever else might be lurking up there.
