COUNTY: Yakima County
LOCATION DETAILS: Along the Naches River
OBSERVED: Laurie Durrell Duyck by way of Linda Durrell
My two daughters and I were driving in to Yakima from our home in Naches. The road runs along the Naches River. Looking down at the river, as I always do to see deer or Bald Eagles, I saw a large dark figure at the edge of the water behind some bushes. Slamming on my brakes and backing up far enough to see the river again, the large figure was gone and no where to be seen. Of course my kids said, "Sure Mom, Bigfoot...I don't think so". About 2 weeks later I was driving on the same road coming home from Yakima in the evening. About a half mile from where I thought I had seen the other one, there were two standing side by side just looking down at the water. One was about a foot and a half taller than the other, both dark in color with very wide shoulders. And again by the time I stopped and backed up, there was nothing to be seen.
ALSO NOTICED: Then about a week later, my husband was coming home. When he got home he asked me where I thought that I had seen the two Bigfoot. I told him and he said that he had just seen something like I saw in the same area. He is a real skeptic, so for him to say he saw something, he must have. I look every day, and so far, I have not seen my friends down by the water. But I won't give up looking.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Late in the month of August, 1996, about 7 a.m.
