COUNTY: Park County
NEAREST TOWN: Lost Creek Wilderness Area
OBSERVED: Creature was near a pond, initially bent over he caught sight of us after about 45 seconds of us observing him from about a 45 degree angle looking down and back about 100-150 feet. At first we thought it was a bear, but when he stood up erect and looked at us we knew it was not a bear. I don't think I have ever felt fear like that day. It has been 28 years and I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was a student at the University of Denver at the time and we told everyone at school about the incident. The next two weekends we took several photographers up to Lost Creek and walked all over the area but found nothing.
OTHER WITNESSES: My girlfriend at the time was with me. We later got married for 13 years but because our parting was as ugly as it gets I am not comfortable publishing her name here. We were just hiking the area having spent the weekend backpacking and camping the Lost creek area
OTHER STORIES: A few years ago I saw Unsolved Mysteries with Robert Stack and they did a segment on Bigfoot sightings in the Lost creek area.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Incident occurred early on a Sunday morning at about 10:00am Perfect weather, not a cloud in the sky, very sunny
ENVIRONMENT: Geography: Lost Creek is a wilderness area in mid-south central Colorado. Many large rock formations and pine/birch forests make up the landscape.
