1948, Upper Crater Lake, Wyoming: Bigfoot Sunning on Phantom Ship Island

William Drexler’s campsite overlooked Phantom Ship Island. He had just finished his sasauge and egg breakfast and was smoking his morning pipe, just looking out over Crater Lake. That is when he noticed something moving on Phantom Ship Island.

Drexler got out his binoculars. It took him a minute or two before he was able to get a good bead on the moving figure. What Drexler saw was a brownish grey Bigfoot, obviously soaking wet, stretching out on some rocks near the water’s edge. The creature was luxuriated. Drexler watched the creature for awhile lounge in the sun. Then after a bit the Bigfoot climbed to the other side of the island and Drexler lost sight of it.

Drexler told his friends about the encounter, but his friends convinced him that Bigfoot was a terrible swimmer and he must be mistaken about what he saw. To this day, Drexler remains confused about the whole scene.
