COUNTY: Skamania County
LOCATION DETAILS: The location was on the road over the top of Silver Star Mt. The road #4109 is on the western slope of Silver Star Mt.
NEAREST TOWN: Yacolt
NEAREST ROAD: FS 4109
OBSERVED: It was foggy and we had never been on this road before, so we had stopped pick-up and got out to check the road ahead on foot. As we were walking south on the road we heard rocks tumbling down from above us. We decided to return to truck and turn around and not risk going any further. As we were walking back to truck I noticed foot prints going uphill from the road in an area we had walked not more than 10 minutes before.
I wear a size 12d boot and was able to put my whole boot inside of these freshly made foot print. We all got scared and ran the rest of the way back to truck. As I was turning truck around I was looking over my shoulder out the window and noticed a large dark hairy animal walking upright pass about 50 ft. behind us. It looked right at us and kept going. We left the area immediatly.
ALSO NOTICED: Did not observe anything other than previously stated.
OTHER WITNESSES: There were three other people with me. We had all gotten out to check the road conditions. No drugs or alcohol was invoved.
OTHER STORIES: I have not heard any other stories about incidents in this immediate area. I have heard other stories about sightings in this same county though.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Time was around 1:00 P.M. The weather was foggy but plenty of light to see clearly.
ENVIRONMENT: We were on the edge of the treeline. Nearby land marks include summit of Silver Star Mt. and Pyramid Rock.
