1991, Trail of Two Forests, Washington: Bigfoot Cave Discovered


1991, Trail of Two Forests, Washington: Bigfoot Cave Discovered

Eric Petersen was hiking about on the Trail of Two Forests. He came upon a hole in the ground, slightly off the trail, that he had never seen before. So Petersen stopped to investigate it.

Petersen slowly crawled into the new cave. He could tell that the cave was recently evacuated, because of the loose dirt and smell of fresh earth. The cave was filled with bones and car side mirrors. There was a bed of leaves in the corner. And there was a strong odor of animal body musk.

Petersen was certain that he was in a Bigfoot lair and not a homeless person’s nest. The large footprints and strings of hair that were clinging to the rocks around the bed of leaves were tell tale signs of the creature.

Petersen thought to wait to see if the creature returned to his lair, but as night began to fall, the possibility of being alone in the dark with a sleepy Bigfoot did not appeal to Petersen.

1991, Salt Fork State Park, Ohio: Man Sees Blind Bigfoot

Camper Adam Taggart was just about to turn in for the night. He started to extinguish the camp fire when he heard something moving though the woods toward his campsite. At first, he thought it must be an woodland animal of some variety. But the closer it came the more the sounds sounded human.

Taggart called out announcing his presence. The noise stopped for a good minute. Then the crunch of underbrush and the bending of branches continued with a renewed vigor. To Taggart’s ear, it sounded as if the person approaching his campsite was intoxicated.

Expecting the worst, Taggart armed himself with a metal rod he had been using to keep some of his material from blowing away. As the figure emerged from the darkness, Taggart realizes the contours of the figure are too large and menacing to be human. Humanoid, yes. But human, no.

The figure was massive. It was over 15 feet tall and covered in a knotted white fur. Taggart fears that it was a bear, at first, but quickly assessed that the figure was the legendary Bigfoot. Taggart tried to lock eyes with the monster, but the creature’s eyes were completely milky white.

Taggart stood up on a log to make himself look bigger, but the Bigfoot barely seemed to notice him. It occurred to Taggart, after watching the beast stumble about, its massive arms swinging methodically in front of itself, that the Bigfoot was blind. Or nearly blind. So Taggart just scooted out of its path as it lumbered past him. It walked so closely to him, he could have hugged it full on without moving anything but his arms.

To this day, Taggart worries about that blind Bigfoot and feels badly that he did nothing to try to help it. Though what could he really have done?

1991, Mt. Massive, Colorado: Man Proves His Point

Dr. Hugh Griggins developed the hypothesis that Bigfoot were unable to be photographed due to an advanced biological evolutionary camouflage trait. He thought that Bigfoot were emitting an electromagnetic pulse that rendered them unfilmable.

Dr. Griggins took to the lecture circuit with his theory. His presentations were packed. He became the authority on photographs and film evidence alleging to have captured Bigfoot. His fame grew due to the speed and accuracy he could spot a hoax or debunk a photo.

Finally, Dr. Griggins was willing to field test his theories. He gathered together a small group of renowned Bigfoot hunters to set out on a three month trek to attempt to capture the monster on film. Accompanying the expedition were four of the nation’s best photographers and cinematographers.

Near the end of the third month, while hiking around Mt. Massive, the crew came upon a Bigfoot about half a mile away. It was hand fishing in a creek. All the photographers were able to get great shots with zoom lenses. The film crew got over 40 minutes of film. Everyone in the exhibition witnessed the sighting.

Once back, everyone anticipated the photographs and film development. Finally, Bigfoot would be proven real. But then something happened. All the pictures came back blurry and with unreadable images. The film foot was shaking and indecipherable.

Dr. Griggins asserted this as proof of his theory. But some on the expedition have claimed that Dr. Griggins staged the sighting after tampering with the cameras and other equipment. An allegation Dr. Griggins fiercely denies.

The debate still rages…
