Hiker has an afternoon sighting behind a mountain resort in Cle Elum
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Kittitas County
LOCATION DETAILS: I noticed that it's hands hung down by it's knees. It looked bulky/muscular. It's auburn/red hair stood out in the snowy environment. I was shocked to see it so close to the resort.
NEAREST TOWN: Roslyn/Ronald
NEAREST ROAD: Tumble Creek Drive
OBSERVED: I was walking in the woods behind the resort. It was pretty quiet, all I could hear was the Cle Elum river down below. I looked through the trees and saw an auburn colored Sasquatch walking. At first I thought it couldn't be a Sasquatch, there are people at the lodge. But as I looked again it's whole body was covered in shaggy auburn hair. I then thought it couldn't be a person, I've never seen anyone wear a snow suit that looks like that.
ALSO NOTICED: The Sasquatch was calmly walking away toward a more forested area. I have tried hard to convince myself that it was a person in a reddish shaggy snow suit but I can't explain the length of its arms and I've never seen a snow suit like that before. My gut keeps telling me that it was a Sasquatch, I can't believe it was so close to civilization. I always imagined that in order to see one, you would have to be in a remote location. It was also very quiet, birds were not singing, nothing.
OTHER WITNESSES: My mom was walking with me and I noticed that the area was looking "squatchy", lots of trees and across from the ridge it is fairly remote. I was wandering farther back into the trees, observing the nature. My mom did not see anything.
OTHER STORIES: I have not.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: It happened in the mid afternoon, it was shady in the trees.
ENVIRONMENT: I was behind Suncadia resort, there are groups of trees with sparse clearings. It is on a ridge and below is the Cle Elum river. Across from the river is the Wenatchee National Forrest.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Jason K.:
I spoke with P.S. over the phone as she retold her first-hand account from the previous year. She and her mother go out to the resort in that area every year to celebrate her birthday. They were taking a nature walk through the nearby forest as the snow was not too deep at the time.
She and her mother were walking somewhat apart at the time. As P.S. was walking south she saw what appeared to be a six foot tall being covered in bright red, shaggy hair walking upright away from her. It was approximately 50 to 100 yards away and walking parallel to the road.
She described it as having very broad shoulders and noted that its hands were swinging down by its knees as it walked. It had an oval shaped head with a peak at the top.
She wasn't fearful, but just stood there in disbelief. She didn't follow it or go look for tracks.
P.S. seemed to be a very credible whiteness telling an honest account of her experience.
