Ok, here goes. I was 11, my mom was 40, it was 1978, in Colorado, on top of a mountain, Stony pass. The pass was a mail route, by horse, in the 1800s. It was a grueling pass, and very long! We were 4 wheeling and after we’d peaked the mountain, I asked dad to find a tree asap. We were above timberline, so as soon as we hit tree line he stopped. Me and my mom went up the hill to pee lol. We instantly heard ruckus and talking. Men , women, and kids, like a group of hikers. Mom said shhhhh, so they don’t see us.
Well, as I was zipping up, I saw bare feet then my eyes went up to a bigfoot standing straight in front of me, no more than 20 feet. I never felt one second of fear, neither did my mom. This being was so timid and apologetic acting. We immediately locked eyes, and it was trying to communicate with facial expressions. I grew up with deaf people, and I went into interpret mode. It seemed to be saying, I’m so sorry, and just a sweetness that was angelic. I don’t know why, but I think it mistakenly walked upon us, and didn’t want us to tell haha, but mom screamed , leave us alone! The saddest look came over its face, and it stepped behind a tree, I turned and mom was running, I ran after her, my dad was headed up. We were yelling bigfoot, we saw bigfoot! I grew up hunting and outdoors , and even in 1978, no mistaken this for a monkey or bear.
That is ridiculous comparison??? Not even close, especially the bear. We ran straight back to where we saw it, and it was long gone. We had no idea about tree structures etc. So, we left. We asked the ranger in town of Lake City if they have reports, and he said , OH YES!!! We did not make a report. Since my encounter, I have been a changed person. I am open minded, and I’d never call anyone a liar, or hoaxer.
I have luckily been believed so far, no ridicule. But I feared telling our story, when I was young. Now, I’m so proud of that day, and that most incredible experience. I feel completely blessed, and consider it a gift from God. My main curiosity is, why did we not feel fear???? We did feel shock, cuz we were pale, mom was white!!! But we went right back to show dad where it stood, and where we stood.
I was 20 feet, mom was about 40. I know you’re a busy man, and I’m so sorry if my story has bored you. I only sent it after being pushed. I hope you found it interesting. Thank you for your time, and for what you do! I truly appreciate you letting people know the truth. Bless you!”
