Beach visitors find large footprints
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Curry County
LOCATION DETAILS: Directly across the highway from the Gold Beach Inn.
NEAREST TOWN: Gold Beach
NEAREST ROAD: Highway 101
OBSERVED: It was about 10 years ago when my girlfriend and I and two of our friends went to Gold Beach, Oregon where I was going to propose to her. We got a motel across the highway from the beach. That night we went to the beach and built a campfire and I noticed footprints in the sand. What struck meas odd was the fact that these were very deep (about 6-8 inches), very long (about 18 inches) and the stride was very long; I had to leap into each one. We followed the prints which went up a five foot embankment and disappeared. None of our group particularly believe in Bigfoot but do not totally rule it out. Just thought I would share our little story.
OTHER WITNESSES: Four witnesses sitting by a campfire
OTHER STORIES: No
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Between 10pm and midnight. At full moon.
ENVIRONMENT: Sandy beach with deep beach grass.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Dr. Wolf H. Fahrenbach:
Step length was an estimated 5' and the depth of the steps exceeded that which could be produced by any of the observers.
