Laird Meadow Road Footprint 1964
This footprint was found by Pat Graves on Laird Meadow Road, near Bluff Creek, California in 1964. During a conversation, Pat mentioned to Roger Patterson he had found the tracks just the day before. Roger hurried to the location, hoping to see the footprints himself; what he found was extraordinary..
The creature that
made the tracks came down from a mountain, crossed Laird Meadow Road,
continued down an old logging landing, and finally disapeared over a bank
and into the woods, with an average stride of 52 inches. Each footprint
was 17 inches long and 5 wide at the heel. The tracks were imprinted an
inch and a half deep, far deeper than Roger's own footprints. Evidence
of a flexible foot was seen in the prints, particularly when the foot
had stepped on small rocks; the toes curled over them.
