(Show Printer-friendly Version)
DATE: Unsure of the exact date, the late fall of 1981 or early spring of 1982. Probably between November and February
COUNTY: Lewis And Clark County
LOCATION DETAILS: In Wolf Creek canyon near Wolf Creek, Montana off of I-15 returning to Helena after a trip to Great Falls
NEAREST TOWN: Helena
NEAREST ROAD: I-15
OBSERVED: While returning to Helena after a trip to Great Falls, I saw....something....illuminated in the cars headlights on a moutainside approximately 150 feet or less off of I-15. Trying to interpret what i saw, i didn't say anything at first. Then a few seconds later my girlfriend said, "do you believe in bigfoot?" It literally sent a chill down my spine and all
I could think of to say was, "You saw that too...." . She simply said, "yes".
I don't know what it was, but i know what it wasn't. It definitely wasn't a bear, goat, sheep, deer, elk, lion, dog, or any other wildlife that lives around here. It was white, standing erect, in excess of 6' tall and appeared to be just watching traffic on the highway (hard to say really, because the duration of this sighting was only a few seconds and it was dark) I find it hard to believe that someone was out there late at night in freezing weather standing in the snow in the middle of nowhere in a gorilla suit (especially a white gorilla suit!) so I've ruled that out as well.
ALSO NOTICED: Nothing else unusual
OTHER WITNESSES: Just one witness and myself riding back from Great Falls to Helena. No alcohol, drugs, or anything else that could have conceviably altered our conception of what we saw
TIME AND CONDITIONS: at night
ENVIRONMENT: Steep, rough, wooded, rocky canyon (Wolf Creek canyon) Dry country but with a creek and an interstate highway (I-15) running through it and near the Missouri river in the Gates of the Mountains area. Elevation probably around 4000 to 4500 feet with snow on the ground at the time. After nearly 20 years, I probably can't determine the spot much closer than 2 or 3 miles.
