Drawing from an expedition to hunt for the legendary Yeti in the Himalayas, I have documented some information from a PBS special. Here is some of that data:
As they began their ascent, the mountain climbers encountered a series of caves. The caves were examined and found to be devoid of any hard evidence of Yeti. But they did overlook a nest, which they managed to get on film at the entrance to the cave. But they only made note of the boughs arranged with a hollow in the center. The evergreens were interwoven with berry vines indigenous to the region probably for strength. :diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: | :diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: | :diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside:
As is customary with these types of shelters, they are designed to
:diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: 1. Location that would afford time for the Abominable Snow Man (ABSM) to make a hasty retreat.
:diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: 2. Its placement gave the user a good view down the face of the mountain.
:diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside: 3. This crude shelter, resembled Bigfoot nests that I have stumbled upon in the Pacific Northwest.
What's odd, here, is the nest wouldn't really provide much shelter from the elements. Discard what you might think about habitat, because it's only function would be to disguise or camouflage the creature. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: A hominid covered with hair, sleeping in the snow-drifts, would easily stand out against the white of the snow pack.
