Episode 15 -- "The Monster"

In 1999 there was a rash of disappearances inside of the famous Yosemite National Park in California. When the police couldn't figure out where these people had gone, or who (or what) was behind their disappearances, a rumor started amongst locals that a "monster" must be running loose in the park attacking people. At first, this was just an urban legend, but by the end of the year, police would discover there really was a monster in the park, and they really were behind the disappearances.
