MONTH: August


STATE: Oregon

OBSERVED: We, my girlfriend and I, smelled an indescribable smell high in the Cascade Mountains. This occured at 1:00am-2:00am

There were two witnesses, my girlfriend and myself.

My girlfriend fell asleep for 30 minutes upon smelling the smell. It could have been fright, it could have been something else.

The place name "Skookum" is one of several American Indian words for Bigfoot.
