COUNTY: Snohomish County
LOCATION DETAILS: Right after Red Bridge is a road going to Black Chief Silver Mine. This road passes through some residential property and then ends with a burm. We went past the burm about 5- 10 miles.
NEAREST TOWN: Silverton
NEAREST ROAD: Mountain Loop Hwy
OBSERVED: This has never been reported...
Two teenagers were riding dirt bikes on an old over grown logging road and stopped for a cigarette at a small lake or beaver pond. They were there for just a couple of minutes (3-4) when a loud blood-curtling scream was heard coming from an opposite ridge about a mile away, no more than two. The scream lasted at most 15 seconds and varied in pitch and tone through out it's length. It made the hairs on the back of their necks stand up. There were no roads on the opposite ridge. They immediately got back on their bikes and left, only telling immediate family members about the scream they heard.
No other people or ground marks indicating recent human activity were seen.
ALSO NOTICED: Many years later, while watching a Sasquatch documentary, the same sound was recognized. It was said to be an actual recording of a Sasquatch from southern Oregon or Northern California.
OTHER WITNESSES: Two witnesses (Dave Monzel at the time was 14, and Dave Reefe was 15 or 16), riding dirt bikes and then resting and having a cigarette. Dave Monzel is now an Aerospace Engineer in Marysville
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 2:00 P.M. Partly cloudy.
ENVIRONMENT: Heavily forested, the logging road had small alders growing through out it.
