Despite the urban sprawl of Seattle constantly pushing further
out, the hills east of the city of Snohomish are apparently still
visited by sasquatches occassionally. In the late 1970's vocalizations
were more common in this area. Nowadays an area in the higher elevations
seems to be the more active zone.
Seattle area BFRO volunteers Rob Johnson, Philip Bange, Steve
Galic, and Chad Cheney have been visiting this location on a weekly
basis since the latter part of January. The group has found several
sets of possible tracks in the snow, but due to snow melt the tracks
were all inconclusive.
The tell-tale trait of the tracks in question, other than their
size, is their stride length. They also head up into some very steep
and remote terrain.
The group has also reported "whistling" vocalizations at night,
and, on one occasion, bipedal-sounding footsteps. Unfortunately,
they were unable to see anything, due to the dense brush.
On the two trips with Jeff Lemley, recorded vocalizations were
broadcast over Don Anderson's loudspeakers, but there was no response.
The only thing heard during the second visit was the call of a spotted
