This is a second hand story! - - I have a good friend named Rusti who told me about a sighting she and her bother and 2 of his friends witnessed one night in 1998 while driving up Emigration Canyon in the Watsatch Mountains.
Rusti is a very honest person and I have no reason to doubt her. This has spooked her ever since. They were all in Jessi's (her brother's friend) car planning on doing some night mud driving.
It was close to 10 pm when they had to stop by the side of the road for a minute to equip the truck before going in the mud.
Once stopped, Rusti's brother noticed Jessi had frozen stiff. When he looked to see what he was staring at -- about 10 feet from the truck ahead of them stood what they believe was a Bigfoot.
Rusti said it just stood there staring at them swaying from left to right. They still had to equip the truck but nobody was about to get out of the truck at that point.
It didn't look like it was going to leave and Jessi honked the horn at it thinking it would scare him off like it would a deer. It had the opposite effect.
The Bigfoot started to take a couple steps towards the truck. They all got so scared Jessi just slammed on the gas in reverse and bolted away from it as fast as he could.
As soon as he did they saw the creature turn and go up the side of a slope and from there into the woods. He moved so fast he was gone in a matter of seconds. Not one of my friends have ever gone back to that canyon.
It happened in the Salt Lake County. At least I think that's what county Emigration Canyon is in. Rusti, her brother, and her brother's friend were the ones who watched it run off. Jessi was looking backwards navigating the truck as they sped off.
