I'm an avid outdoorsman and mountaineer, so obviously I have had my share of experiences. Here's my sighting log from the past 3 years:
Mt. Ranier,WA, July 2007: Found large prints at 7,283 feet on way to Little Tahoma an Muir Base Camp. Measured 14 5/8 inches long by about 7 1/2
inches wide on average. Imprinted on mud/snow. Saw 3 prints before path turned rocky.
Skagit River,WA, June 2007: Found a large unsettled patch of land near river. Some elk and bear in area but otherwise no other large mammals. Too
close to campground to be bear, and elk stay in higher elevations during summer seasons.
Denali (Kahiltna Glacier Base Camp), AK, August 2006: Attempted to summit Denali, but high winds forced us to turn back at 17, 800 feet. Waited for
helicopter back at base camp on glacier. While marking safe zones, I saw a large white animal an slopes of Mt. Foraker. Too high to be bighorn sheep,
no mountain goats in Alaska Range. Climbers were banned on Foraker during that month due to frequent, large avalanches that were becoming too much of
a liability. Went back to tent for binoculars, but when I returned 25 minutes later, I was unable to locate it. Alaskan Yeti???
Long's Peak, CO, May 2006: Heard unexplained noises eminating from woods on our hike to Chasm Lake, the base for the ascent to the summit. Sounded
like an overweight man grumbling after being waken up early. (best analogy I could think up) Lasted for 2 minutes, Accompanied by hideous stench.
Could've been an elk, but I still can't write off the possibility.
Jediah Smith Wilderness, WY, December 2005: Backpacked behind the Tetons for a week of winter solitude. During the trip, we heard loud wood-knocking,
commonly associated with apes. A couple tracks were also found by other backpackers during that week.
Jackson, WY, April 2005: The experience that begun my interest in bigfoot. I was sitting in my bedroom, which overlooks the sage flats of Grand Teton
National Park. It was about 5 o'clock. I glanced out the window and I glanced what was ABSOLUTELY a large, hairy figure walking across the flats. It
terrified me at first, but as I learned more about Sasquatch, I became interested. Of course, my 13 year-old mind probably could've been playing
tricks on me. It could have just been a man in a wool coat. Still, it warm out and I couldn't find a reason for what he would be doing way out there.
I saw it from about a quarter mile away.
Also, I was inspired by flying over Northern Ontario, just glancing at all the desolate wilderness made me marvel at how much land we havn't
populated (and what could be there in our place)...
