Something Small (And Confusing) This Way Comes

We met Ron Quinn a little while ago on the blog due to this
terrific collection of Little People encounters that he received
from persons living mainly in the Catskill area of New York
state. John Timmerman, however, met him in 1991 in Tucson, AZ,
when John was exhibiting the CUFOS photo exhibit there. Ron
Quinn was a writer and an artist/cartoonist as well as other
creative sorts of interests, who was fascinated by both the UFO
phenomenon and the Little People phenomenon ever since having
his own experiences with each in the 1940s [in Washington state
and New York state, respectively]. He had settled for some while
in the Tucson area, living mainly by writing for newspapers and
weeklies, and making films. He came up to John to tell him of
what he felt to be the most peculiar anomalistic claim that he'd
been involved with, though it was an experience which had not
happened directly to him.

Here's how the story goes: Ron had an old friend of about twenty
years living in Tucson. His friend had been a high school math
teacher, was a solidly conservative person in his beliefs and
interests, and Ron was the type of close friend between which
there would be no "funny business", even if the friend's
personality had been different. The friend was retired at the
time [1988] and liked to drive about southern Arizona pursuing
his favorite hobby, photography. One day in 1988, Ron got an
excited phonecall asking him to meet him at the Denny's
restaurant on Oracle road [that's it above; thought it was just
fun to put the real one in there]. Ron hurried on over and got
an earful of a story.

Ron's friend, who he wanted to keep anonymous, so he called him
"Sam", liked photographing Arizona's old Ghost Towns, and one of
them was nearly to the US-Mexico border, the old mining town of

Rubies weren't mined there, but Lead, Zinc, and Silver were. The
mine was particularly profitable for Lead and Zinc in its hay-
day. Sam had visited Ruby many times and doubtlessly
photographed everything in the town area worth shooting, so he
had taken to wandering around the rough mountainous
surroundings, camera in hand.

A prominent feature which you can't miss from the town is
Montana Peak. This is, in fact, a somewhat popular destination
for casual hiker-climbers in southern Arizona, though hardly any
tourist Mecca. Most days there are no people anywhere about the
peak. It was one such day when Sam encountered the "alien".

You have to get well beyond Ruby to the back side of Montana
Peak to find yourself at "the scene of the crime". Sam had been
exploring the backside canyons and what is called California
Gulch, when he heard an odd whishing sound in the air. Whether
this had anything at all to do with his later encounter, who
knows? About twenty-to-thirty minutes later, Sam is walking down
one of the small washed out "canyons", when he spots a small
