As you can see I have a life desire to proof to myself and others theses creatures are real. Yet another bit of evidence to study. This one was submitted to BFRO by a hiker in Silver Star Mountain, Washington this week.


November 17, 2005 - outside Yacolt, WA
A hiker from Vancouver, Washington, took these photos on Silver Star Mountain in Gifford Pinchot National Forest on November 17. He observed the figure briefly and said it appeared to be covered with dark hair.

BFRO investigator John Callender (airline pilot) interviewed witness (initials RC) near his home on Friday, November 25, 2005.

John says, in his opinion, RC is honest and credible. His locale and normal activities would have put him in a position to get these photos. The story and photos do not appear to be hoaxed.

These photos have not been digitally manipulated or enhanced. They were copied by our own investigator straight off RC's digital camera. The full file has not been compressed. You can download the full files by clicking the top two photos.

This one is very differant than the normal photos you find. The fact these were downloaded by a wittness being an investigater for the BFRO directly from the hikers camera. See what you think. BFRO.net


There are more photos possibly taken according to the story on thier site linked above

I think these are some of the most interesting alleged photos of bigfoot I've seen in a while, good find!


Not sure though if the statement that they were pulled directly off the digital camera means much though, I can save images back to my camera from my computer.

The Gifford Pinchot National Forest was also where the Skookum cast was made by Rick Noll. There are researchers headed that way now to look for evidence possibly left behind by the creature. Does anyone here know if there has been any fresh snow there since these photos were taken? I also am interested in hearing the hikers story once it is posted by the BFRO investigater. I would like to commend the BFRO for releasing these photos this quick so we all can share.

Great find, Harry! Your our local Bigfoot expert aren't you? The angle of these photos is puzzling and I'm trying to wrap my mind around how you'd figure out the height of the creature. Still, its a wonderful find and I'm glad you've brought it to our attention.

Voidmaster, not an expert but do have a strong desire to study and keep up todate with the current news on these creatures. Thanks for every ones help and comments concerning these finds. Living here in the Smoky Mtns. keeps me curious no doubt.

This area of Washington State is not unknown in the history we have of Bigfoot reports and findings.
These photos were taken not far from the area of study known as the Skookum Cast.



The initial examination of the cast of a partial body print found 9/22/2000 during a BFRO expedition in southern Washington state. The cast is referred to as the "Skookum Cast" because it was found in the Skookum Meadows area of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
The photo above shows the cast after most of the mud was removed. Standing beside it at the initial examination outside Seattle, are (from left):

Physical Anthropologist and author, Dr. Grover Krantz
Journalist and author, John Green
Wildlife Biologist and author, Dr. John Bindernagel
Their conclusions: The imprint was not attributable to any recognized animal species. The imprint was most likely made by a living sasquatch.



LINK TO STORY WITH PHOTOS

This area is well documented with 372 sightings over the recent years as shown on the BFRO Washington Sighting Map

I wouldn't worry about that too much. What else could he have said about it than that.

The JPEG header ( EXIF ) data seems consistent with their statements, but it doesn't prove anything.

Bit Depth : 24
Frame Count : 1
Equip. Make : SONY
Camera Model : CYBERSHOT
Color Representation : sRGB
Flash Mode : No Flash
Focal Length: 24mm
F-Number: F/10
Exposure Time: 1/800 sec.
ISO Speed : ISO-100
Metering Mode: Pattern
Light Source: Tungsten
Exposure Program: Normal
Exposure Compensation: 0 step
Date Picture Taken: 11/17/2005 2:37:11 PM (Silver_Star_Mt._030.jpg)
11/17/2005 2:36:54 PM (Silver_Star_Mt._029.jpg)

So the photos appear to have been taken 17 seconds apart, which looks consistent with the motion of both the subject of the photos and the apparent movement of the photographer between shots.

yet again, another bigfoot sighting without the camera man running toward it to get a better photo, another long distance grainy shot. Another hiker afriad to confront the beast. Another joke, crack-pot game.

Yes, because we all know that YOU would run up and tackle and subdue Bigfoot. Then you'd drag him back for his big interview with Larry King.

Until you're within walking distance of such a massive and frightening creature, without any weapons to protect you, then I think you should reserve such judgement.

And another time this opinion has to be stated with nothing else contributing to the discussion.


Good find Harry55, I have to stay on my toes.


I will have to look into these more.

Those pics are taken at high altitude, the pic taker must be further along the same ridgeline.

What I can't understand is why he didn't walk towards it, and take photos of it tracks?

As for recreating the scene, theres no way of knowing where the bigfoot is standing. You could have a human walk towards the camera from behind that ridgeline, at some point his head will appear, as the human gets closer eventually his torso and half his legs will appear in the shot.

Actually thinking about it, if you do get the spot where the cameraman was standing, then a comparison shot will show how tall a 6ft human would appear when standing on the ridge and behind the ridge, so it would be interesting. But you have to trust the camera man not to have hoaxed this and already know where to say he took the photos from (a position closer to the spot). As far as I can see this it would be possible to confirm where he was standing if it can be proved he was using full zoom. Where it says focal length 24mm is that referring to the amount of zoom he had on?

What do I know? your comments on my mumblings are welcome.

Thanks Harry another good find. If I lived there I'd be going hiking tomorrow.

No I don't think so, it is just an attribute of the optical system. See Focal Length.

I am not a photographer so I don't know what this number says about the zoom of the camera.

The investigater just posted the sighting report at Recent Reports BFRO.
Quote from the hiker:



I could see that it was covered with dark fur. The photos don't show it too well, but I could see it with my own eyes. It definitely was not another backpacker or snowshoer.

Yeah,
"Excuse me Mr. Bigfoot. Can you hold my camera please, while I pull out one of your teeth for a sample?"


Interesting pics

I've camped in that area before................ If there is a place where an intelligent primate could live mostly unnoticed, that's it. I'm somewhat undecided on Bigfoot (probably leaning towards believing) but we've had sightings in SE WA too.

Reading the report just posted by the investigater at BFRO the hiker (R.C) did in fact answer some of our questions we had.



I drove to Vancouver, WA last night and met with the witness and his son regarding this report. He is 48 years old. He does a lot of solo backpacking
On the day of November 17, 2005, he decided to solo backpack at Silver Star Mountain, just north of Washougal, WA.

While on the summit he noticed a rock that looked strange and out of place. He said, “I’ve been up there enough to know every big rock along the way, and this rock didn’t look like something that I’ve seen there before”.

He got out his camera (a Sony 3.2 mega pixel) and took a photo. As he was doing this the figure suddenly stood up and started moving.

The witness ("RC") felt that he wasn’t in the best position for additional photos so he moved along the trail as far as he could move. He was in waist-deep snow. He noticed that it was much more difficult for him to move than the figure. The figure seem to step around easily in the snow.

He was able to shoot two additional photos before it disappeared out of sight over the top of the hill.

The witness stated he never attempted to look for tracks. The snow was too deep at the summit to move around easily.

He also states that he has more photos taken that day to show the weather conditions as stated.

This took place in Skamania, Washington and check out all the sightings of record at BFRO Skamainia Sighting Page
One report has recording fro March this year by campers.

Please do not think I am trying to bump this thread but this is starting to become very interesting. Just found this quote at Bigfoot Forums by MM( the one in charge at BFRO ) instructions to his investigaters:



If you go there please photograph anyone you see up there with a long gun. Also, please get photos of vehicles and license plates at any pullouts or trailheads near the mountain. This will deter shooters and make it safer for photographers.

This was his instructions to his investigaters checking this sighting out. Apparently he does not want someone trying to kill this creature and wants to keep them safe.

I'm here in the foothills, a very mountainous, tree covered region of california and I believe that somewhere there IS an ape-man of this size and stature that lives in the woods. I'm sure most will agree with me here but a few still frown on anyone believing in anything out of the ordinary.

Science and man have a long way to go until we will know the REAL truth of whats happening in our world... but even then, we won't ever know EVERYTHING.

It looks like another hiker that has his hood up, nothing special in those photos. He probably just sent his hiking buddy to go stand there and it turned out to look like bigfoot so they went with that.

I have to agree with that any humanoid of the size of reported bigfoots would be way stronger than just about any human. You would be talking power something on the order of a large bear I would think with bigger bigfoot reports.

Nobody in their right mind would try to corner something that powerful. Even a small mouse more afraid of you then you are of it can strike at if you corner it.
