(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: King County
LOCATION DETAILS: If you were heading toward fall city from snoqualmie right before the salish lodge and snoqualmie falls.Take a right after the bridge onto millpond road and go left up the hill.Follow the road for 3 miles then you take a right and the the main line gate is straight ahead.Up the main line road a few miles the j line road is on your left.Thats the intersection where we saw it,it was walking the main line road the opposite way you are traveling.
NEAREST TOWN: snoqualmie
NEAREST ROAD: main line road
OBSERVED: Me and a friend borrowed another friends truck, skipped school and went bass fishing.It was about 3:00 in the afternoon when we decided to head home.We were driving down a gravel road that connected with the main line logging road. As we approached the main line road we noticed this creature to the right.It was about 80 yards away,and it started moving away from us very fast.The creature disappeared around a bend in the road about 125yards away.We sat there for a half a minute looking at each other in disbelief.Then we took off down toward where he went around the bend.When we got there the creature was about 200 yards down the road.It looked back towards us and went into the brush.When we got down there we shut the truck off and could hear rustling brush for about 20 seconds,but we couldn't see it.That was that.I grew up my whole life out in the woods,hunting, fishing,and hiking.I know all the animals in the area well,we know what we saw.It was unbelievable,we were close enough to get a good look at it.I was 18 at the time,now Im 36 and i can still see its face,its body,and its walk.The creature was at least 7'-8' tall,with long brownish red hair.It was a sasquatch,for sure.We never really talked about it to many people.All i know is these things are out there.
ALSO NOTICED: We got such a good look at this thing.I can especially remember its huge hands and fingers,and how huge,and light colored the bottom of his feet were.It looked right at us twice and i felt like it really wasn't that concerned about it.
OTHER WITNESSES: Just me and my fishing partner.
OTHER STORIES: I have heard of several sightings in the area.Two years after my encounter two good friends had a similar encounter in a different area.They were driving down a steep road on the backside of rattlesnake ridge,just down hwy 18 off i-90.They were heading down the road almost to a switch back,and they noticed a creature on the road below them.They got a good look and then it dissapeared into the brush.They said they were about 150 yards from it.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: It was about 3:20 in the afternoon.The lighting that day was really good,and it was a clear day.Which is rare in washington.
ENVIRONMENT: The area where we saw it was real thick second growth forest,so thick most places you can't see 20 feet.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Scott Taylor:
I called this witness and we talked for 30 minutes about his experience.
The sighting happened in the fall of 1991. The witness was 18 years old. He and his friend skipped school to go fish the lakes on Weyerhaeuser land east of the town of Snoqualmie. At that time, those roads were open all the time. Today, they are gated.
While talking with the witness, I could hear the emotion in his voice as he recounted the event.
He and his friend had finished fishing and were on their way back to town. They were traveling down the J-line road and right where it intersected the Main-line, the road makes a bend to the right. When they turned onto the Main-line road, they saw the sasquatch walking away from them on the right hand side of the road. It was about 70 yards away. They were both startled by the sight. They stopped the truck for a few seconds, and watched in disbelief as the sasquatch walked rapidly away and around a bend to the right out of sight. Before the sasquatch went out of view, it turned and looked at them. In a few seconds, they drove on around the corner. They saw the sasquatch was about 70 yards further down the road. It turned to the left and crossed the road, disappearing into the heavy brush.
Both young men were very upset. The friend of the witness was the most frightened. The witness said that his friend was terribly upset and disturbed by the incident for a long time. He has since lost contact with his friend.
The witness was able to provide good description of what he saw. The first thing he noticed was the sheer massive size. The build was bulky. He said it was at least eight feet tall. Its shoulders were four feet wide (he is in construction, and compared the size to the width of a sheet of plywood…good comparison). He said that the head was cone shaped, but not pointy. It had no neck and he could see the trapezium muscles connecting the shoulders to the head when it turned to look back at them. The head was large, and the face was black skinned. The mouth and lower jaw area was between 10-12 inches wide. Its face was more round shaped than oval. The upper legs were thick, and then thin below the knee. The bottoms of the feet he said were of particular note because they were light tan colored, in contrast to the rest of the creature. The arms were long, and the hands extended almost to the knees. The hands were black skinned. Its hair was 3-4 inches long. It was dark brown with some reddish tint. He was not able to get a look at its eyes or nose due to the distance.
I asked him how it walked. He said that it walked fast, but did not run. It walked with knees that were always bent. It walked very smoothly. Its posture was slightly bent forward.
This man, who is 36 now, lives in Montana. He is a life-long outdoorsman who has harvested deer, elk, and bear. He would not mistake a bear for this creature. His knowledge of the wildlife makes his observation reliable.
There is no doubt in my mind that this person and his friend saw a sasquatch. The description is detailed and accurate. The location is in typical sasquatch habitat. There is thick forest of varying age, ponds, lakes, and streams in this location. It is an ideal location, and I wish that we had access to the area.
