I can offer two personal observations as to why Sasquatch remains hidden, and so elusive.
First off, I have always known about ideas such as Loch Ness, Champ, Sasquatch, and so on. When I happened to be in the same area where they are
constantly sighted however, it truly brought it all into perspective. Many years ago I happened to fly out to Washington State. I was there for the
first and last time (unfortunately I haven't been back since), on a trip with my family. The one aspect that really caught my eye, and my awe, was
the ruggedness of the wilderness out there. There aren't any woods, only forests. There aren't any trees, only giants. I was up in the Olympic
Mountains as well as Mt. Rainier, and I can say from firsthand experience that the forests and woodlands are so thick, that practically anything can
be hidden from sight. Entire planes have gone missing in the woodlands of Washington State, never to be found, or heard from again. I experienced the
areas all the way from B.C. to Tacoma, and out to the Olympic Peninsula, and with all assurance I can state that unless you have actually been there
and experienced the wilderness, you have no idea how deep it runs. Anyone from Alaska correct me if I am wrong, but I would say the wilderness of the
Cascades is comparable on a small scale to the wilds of Alaska.
Second, I was in Maine one time visiting relatives. We went out a couple of nights to this gravel pit area known for Moose sightings. There were
outdoorsmen up there with spotlights, and Maine backwoods experience, so it was definitely the spot to catch a glimpse of the Wildlife. However, we
never were able to see one, and not being from a wild area myself I felt disappointed. I really like the wilderness in terms of exploration and
visitation, but I rarely make it out to such remote areas as NW Maine. On the way back we were driving through a very remote area and were basically
praying that we could catch some footage of a Moose. All of the sudden I see a head appear out of the woods off to my right, and I yell "STOP!", the
driver pulled over and backed up. I was filming meanwhile, and when I brought the video camera to bare on the Moose the freaking thing posed! It did a
head turn to the right profile and froze, then did a head turn to the left profile and froze, then did a head on and froze, then turned around and
disappeared. It was then, and only then that I realized why we never saw a moose, the woods are so thick they could be 20 feet away and you would
NEVER know it! Even knowing where that moose was, and tracking him with the zoomed in camera, I lost sight of him as soon as he was just 3 Feet back
in the woods. Think about it, this is a creature that weighs about Half-a-Ton, and stands 6 Feet Tall, and 9 Feet long, yet it has vanished from
trained eyes within a few steps of entering the forest. You want to know how Sasquatch stays hidden? That is how.
