Jefferson County, Washington
*Olympic National Forest

Here it is, the ultimate in Bigfoot sightings! It was a beautiful summer day. I was coming back from a camping trip at Ocean Shores in Washington State. We were somewhere in the Olympic Forest, not sure of just where on a long and narrow back stretch of highway when out of the woods leaped a huge furry Bigfoot covered in brownish black fur. Huge with long arms swinging back and forth.

I was only ten in 1981 and raised in a very strict Christian home, when out of my mouth came the words 'holy shit' and my Dad was already staring straight at this thing as my mom and sister were looking at me in anger for swearing. By the time they turned around again to see the Bigfoot, he disappeared into the woods again. But my Dad saw him and I was very glad Someone did besides just me. Dad pulled over and we both got out of the car. There was the worst smell I have ever smelt in the air. It was almost like the smell of a skunk but much stronger. There were tracks leading off the side of the road into the woods.

Of course, being a Christian woman, my Mom never did believe and to this day does not believe Dad and I. But as long as I live I know that Dad and I bonded that day when we saw something few people will ever get to see in their lifetime. Thanks for the opportunity to share my experience with you. Sincerely Shawn Seavey.

*The State of Washington's Olympic National Forest began as a Forest Reserve in February 1897, when President Cleveland signed the proclamation which withdrew 1,500,00 acres of public land on the Olympic Peninsula. In 1905, the name Olympic Forest Reserve was changed to Olympic National Forest. The center of the Olympic National Forest was proclaimed Mount Olympus National Monument by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1909. Various environmental and climatic changes occur within a relatively short distance around the Peninsula. In the 50-mile radius between Mt. Olympus and the Pacific Ocean, the vegetation changes from a lush, temperate rain forest typical of the Hoh, Queets, and Quinault Valleys to an alpine environment of lichens and mosses above 7,000 feet. Many Sasquatch sightings and cast footprints have come out of this area.
