Siskiyou County, California 2002
This is to report a curious event from September of 2002.
We stopped by a creek, possibly the South Fork of the Salmon River, to take lunch. Afterwards, we left our back packs to explore this lovely meadow area. After a while, we decided to return to our gear, and set off for the 2 hours back to the car.
.We had heard nothing unusual, and determined that the maker of these tracks came from the far side of the creek, regarded our things, then returned whence it came, as there were no tracks leading away from the area. The far side of the creek was quite strewn with gravel and stones, and there appeared top be an area where something had exited the water, leaving some wetness upon the stones
Needless to report, we made grand time in returning to our car! We asked each other if perhaps it might have been a bear, but apart from birds, we are not expert in any such determination. I gave it no further thought, until reading that a gent (whose name sadly escapes me here) involved in similar tracks had recently passed on.
I researched the web, and came upon your site, and herein is my report. I found that "bigfoot" is wont to make certain noises, and often emit a foul stench, but we noticed neither. I hope this mystery is of some use in your research.
Please refer to us as Mr., Mrs. R.N. , and L. (son) N.
