Another couple out hiking at Circle B at the same time over the weekend had their still cameras ready on the opposite side of Joiner.

"It was just awe-inspiring," said Kirsti Buckley about the experience.

She captured more than a dozen pictures of the experience.

"It does look pre-historic... and just watching his feet flop as they hit the ground is amazing. In my imagination I could feel the ground shake," she said.

Ever since we posted the video on our Facebook page, Circle B has filled up with people searching for the massive reptile. The parking lot is packed with people trying to catch a glimpse of the big guy.
