1978, Barr Lake State Park, Colorado: Glowing Bigfoot Seen

While birding in along a remote path around Barr Lake, Marybeth Lessing, witnessed a strange occurrence. Lessing claims that she saw through her birding spectacles a large ape like monster punching the air. As she watched this creature seemingly shadow boxing, it became clear that it was a Bigfoot fist fighting a smallish glowing humanoid creature.

Lessing refuses to believe in UFOs or Extraterrestrial aliens. Lessing claims people who believe in those things have serious mental problems.

So what does Lessing think she saw the Bigfoot fighting? A radioactive mutant child, probably recently escaped from a secret government underground lab. As Lessing points out, those types of labs are buried everywhere around the Pacific Northwest.

1983, Castlewood Canyon State Park, Colorado: Bigfoot Bothered by Reflection

Lee John Horton was 11 years old when his parents took him to Castlewood Canyon. He was super bored and acting out. So parents made him sit on a rock near a little creek and waterfall, while the hiked around.

Horton was wearing a brand new watch. It was a bit too big for him and he thought it was heavy on his wrist so he took it off. That is when he noticed that the back of the watch face reflected the sun brilliantly.

As he played around aiming the reflection along the rocks and hitting the waterfall, he noticed a creature’s head. At first he thought it was just a beaver, but then it turned and he saw its face. Horton knew he was looking a Bigfoot sitting among the rocks.

Instead of being frightened, Horton aimed his watch reflection at the Bigfoot. It took a few minutes to get the aim just right, but finally Horton managed to get the reflection right in the face of the monster.

After a few minutes, of swatting its huge paws around and rubbing its face, the Bigfoot stood up to its full height. It looked over toward Horton, how threw himself flat among the rocks, trying to hide. Horton heard a WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO as the Bigfoot screamed at him in agitation.

When Horton peaked his head up, the Bigfoot was gone. To this day, Horton still does not feel bad about teasing the gentle Bigfoot.

1952, Greater Prairie Chicken Trail, Colorado: Bird Watcher Watches Dancing Bigfoot

Amateur ornithologist, Avery Hideman, was out birding along the Greater Prairie Chicken Trail in Fort Mason, Colorado. Hideman spied two Cassin’s Sparrows when he noticed something in the lower corner of his binoculars. He swung them down to investigate what he saw made him cruse and nearly drop his binoculars.

Hideman claims he saw two Bigfoot dancing along the ridge about a half mile away. Hideman was certain they were Bigfoot because of their enormous size. They were covered in dark hair and looked like giant apemen. Hideman was totally convinced when the two creatures kick up their heels and he saw their big feet! They were larger than any human feet that he ever seen.

Hideman watched for several minutes the two monsters prance around. Unfamiliar with many popular dances, Hideman probably misidentified the Bigfoot dance as “clear square dance moves.”

1957, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Colorado: Bigfoot Seen Entering UFO

Jack Chalich, a college student out on a morning ski stumbles upon a very disturbing sight. As he zig zagged down the Beaver Run Trail, he spotted something bright, shiny, and clearly metallic on the other side of the treeline.

He came to a stop to investigate the strange object. It was about the size of two Chevrolet sedans stacked next to each other and as tall as a playground slide. It gave off a light that was nearly impossible to look directly at, and the silver surface of the machine was otherworldly. It only took Chalich a few seconds to realize he stumbled upon a genuine UFO.

Just as that fact hit him, Chalich realized he was standing there gawking at it like a tourist. Immediately, he ducked down. He crept closer to the cylinder spaceship, laying flat on his belly in some dense bushes.

Chalich nearly sqwaked when he saw the tall white skinned alien beings walk out through the woods. They were chattering in a clicking language to a huge hairy beast. Chalich rubbed his eyes in disbelief as the massive Bigfoot bent down to better hear the large fish eye alien beings.

He watched in horror as three more alien creatures emerged from the side of the spaceship. They clearly greeted the Bigfoot, who gently embraced each one, before the whole group re-entered the UFO. Chalich passed out or fainted. Because the next thing he remembers is waking up at the bottom of the ski trail. His skies had been removed and neatly stacked next to him.

Chalich found that as he told his tale to others, many believed the UFO part but dismissed the claim that Bigfoot was an alien.

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…

2010, Roxy Ann Peak, Colorado: Man Hears Howls and Knocks

Thomas Colhouse was hiking in Roxy Ann Peak before sunrise.  Colhouse enjoyed the quiet of his pre-dawn hikes.  But on this day, Colhouse was disturbed by a distant howling.

“It was unlike any animal noise I ever heard before,” Colhouse said, “Sounded so mournful and sad.”

Colhouse stopped to listen. He thought someone might be in distress. When the howling continued, it was accompanied by a sharp wood knocking.

“When I head the tree knocking,” Colhouse continued, “I knew it must have been a Bigfoot making those noises. I heard them once before, back when I was younger. That same sad howling followed by the inhuman sound of a powerful blow upon a hollow tree stump.”

Once Colhouse concluded that the howling was some distance away from him, he continued his planned hike without incident.
