1998, Big Horn National Forest, Wyoming: Campers Rushed by Bigfoot

Campers Kristen Murphy and Elaine Gelles were sleeping in their tents in Bighorn National Forest. There was not a cloud in the sky, so the moon lit up the area. Around 3 AM, Gelles awoke suddenly. She had heard something moving around their campsite.

Gelles peeked out of her tent to see a brownish hairy figure creeping around. She curled up in the middle of her tent and held her breath. Hoping whatever it was outside her tent would just go away.

Meanwhile, Murphy, also, awake in her own tent heard the sniffling and grunting of the animal outside. While she did not brave a peek, she did see the shadow of the man-creature on the side of her tent.

The next morning the two friends exchanged notes about what they had witnessed and found Bigfoot tracks around some of the trees near their campsite. They packed up and did not spend another night at that location.

1969, Ross Lake, Washington: Campers See Blurs in the Trees

While camping with his family, Bill George Rochon, claims that he saw something moving around the tops of the trees.

Rochon tells how after his family went to sleep, he sat up near the dying camp fire smoking his pipe. He heard the trees rustling and whipping around like they would during a storm. But there wasn’t a cloud in the sky nor a hint of a breeze.

Rochon stood up and moved toward the noises. That is when he saw several large ape sized blurs jump from tree to tree. They were almost silent, except for the sound they made launching and landing.

Rochon grew concerned for his family. He thought about shouting or throwing stones at the blurs, but then thought better of it. Since whatever was in those trees, seemed to be minding its own business.

Rochon finished his pipe and went to bed. The next day, he told his family about what he witnessed. His son Georgie was convinced his dad saw some baby Bigfoot.

1972, Mt. Shuksan, Washington: Bigfoot Scares Campers with Tree Shaking

Mark Johson and his family of four were camping in the Mt. Shuksan area of Washington state. They planned this trip for a year and were two days into their vacation.

After turning in for the night around 8:30 PM, the three children playing a card game in their shared tent. Mark and his wife enjoyed some alone time in their tent. The family was startled when the tree next to their camp site began to shake violently. Not just the branches, but the entire tree.

The entire family emerged from their tents to see the tree ripple and quake like a punching bag hit by a professional boxer. When Mark walked around the tree to see what caused this shaking, he came face to chest with a huge Bigfoot. The creature was pounding the tree with both enormous fists.

Mark stood there in shock as the Bigfoot turned to consider this puny human. It looked Mark up and down, howled at the top of its lungs then slowly walked off into the woods.

It took Mark a few weeks to be able to speak about what he saw on the other side of the tree. His family believed it was really a bear he saw, but never had the courage to say it to their father’s face.

1976, Mount Adams, Washington : Hikers Followed By Baby Bigfoot

Pyle Lenning and Milton Beas were camping on Mount Adams in Washington State.  On the second night of their trip, Beas was awoken by pound rustling around his pup tent. By the time he found his flashlight, whatever was checking out his tent had shuffled off.

Beas told Lenning about the noises. Lenning explained that raccoons often bothered the tents, especially around dawn. Beas was satisfied. A few hours into this hike, the pair stopped to eat lunch. While they were finishing up, Lenning heard some human like sighing behind them. When he shushed Beas’ harmonica playing, the breathing was no longer audible.

That night another visitor snorted around the edge of Beas’ tent again. This time he called out, which audibly startled the visitor, who could be heard scampering off.  The next morning, Lenning found human like footprints in the dirt a few feet from the camp. The prints were, in Lenning’s opinion, clearly a young Bigfoot.

The next few days, both men heard the loud breathing, snapping of branches, and a soft whine at night. While the continued to find foot print evidence, neither of the men actually saw the creature. Lenning postulated that the young Bigfoot was on his own for the first time and had yet to determine if campers were friendly or hostile. He hoped that their interaction would not give the creature a false sense of security.
