I want thank Gumshoguy for sending me this account: “It was new years 1999. I was driving along #1 hwy with my brother his wife, my newborn and their 1yr old little girl.
We were heading back to Vancouver and made a random washroom stop beside Mooselake. It was a small rest stop sitting by the river. We already made a fuel stop in Jasper and didn’t want to make any more stops until we reached Kamloops. As we pulled in, there was a car sitting parked that looked abandoned, it sat in the direction of exiting the rest stop towards jasper way. We thought maybe the person just stopped for a sec to go back into the rest stop. I asked my brother to see if there was anyone there who may have left the car sitting running like the way we noticed with the doors wide open and igniton and headlights on. My brother took his family to the washroom.
I sat to settle my baby down and feed him, before we pulled in we had also noticed a trucker made a stop there a well. After they left for the bathroom, a guy had approached me at my window tapping on it, he was trying to get my attention in an urgent manner. I was startled and never opened the window for him. I was hoping he’d leave, he kept asking me to roll the window down and look towards where he kept pointing. I was too afraid to bother looking thinking he could’ve been a weirdo. So i avoided him best I could.
When my brother came back, I asked if anyone was in the bathroom who might have left the car sitting the way it was, he said nobody was around bc he looked for the person. Thats when the trucker immediately approached him to tell him what he was directing us to see. He told me he wasn’t trying to scare anyone but he wanted to clarify what he was seeing to assure he wasnt seeing things or going crazy.
We all looked to see what the urgency was it took our attention and breath away. It was something far taller and much larger than a person, it had fur and was dark in appearance, the arms fell much longer than anyone normally. It was pulling something that we noticed looked like a person up the snowy embankment above the road across the opposite side from the rest stop. Our jaws dropped and were frightened by what we seen.
It had to have been the person that left the car sitting idling. It gave everyone chills and the trucker told us he was going to report the car abandoned and person as missing. The creature we seen had no clothing on and what to appear as fur top to bottom. It was watching us watch him as he continued to pull what looked like a person up the hill. Right away we jumped into the car to get away from there before anything else occurred, the trucker also left immediately fast as we could go. While we drove away we had to pass along the embankment in the direction where we spotted what we believed was a Sasquatch. I looked out the back window sitting beside my newborn and niece scared outa my wits watching this creature running on top of the treed hill to our direction through the snow.
We drove as fast as possible to get out of there without making any stops, my brother was so afraid he was in tears and he’s a big brute of a man which left him feel a bit awkward after telling me he’s never experienced such a sighting in his life and never will travel BC highways again apparently this was his first time on the #1 highway. We didn’t bother reporting it bc we didn’t want people thinking we were crazy bc of so many skeptics then.”
