Sierra Tahoe Bigfoot Research

This site is dedicated to the research of bigfoot, and it's habitat, in the Tahoe and outlying Sierra region of Nevada and California. We listen to witnesses who want to talk about their experiences, and keep them confidential unless otherwise requested. Our mission is to learn as much as we can about the possible existence of the sasquatch, in the hope that we can all gather a better knowledge of the species, then ultimately, we as a race understand that it's habitat, and way of life, must be protected.

SASQUATCH: Our First Day In the Field for 2010

It's been a long winter in the eastern Sierras. I've been chomping at the bit to get away from the computer, and out into the field. Finally, we had one nice week of warmer weather, so I seized the opportunity to get back to the area I highlighted in a video from February 17.

We started our hike at 5500 feet in elevation. Ground conditions were perfect for prints. At first, we could see a set of a single human's tracks, along with a medium sized dog's, that lasted only about a half a mile into our trek, as we approached the 5800 foot level. They seemed to be a day or two old. Otherwise, there seemed to be no signs of humans taking this trail once we hit the 5800 foot area.
This is where the snow got thicker, and the human tracks ended.

The snow began to get deeper. Though it was melting at a pretty good rate, the top layer had a frozen crust, and soon we found ourselves falling through, up to our waists in some spots. I, being overly optimistic that the warmer weather would have melted more snow than we found, did not wear the appropriate shoes. I was wearing my warm weather shoes, with breathable mesh, that didn't fare well in the snow.

You can see how thick the snow is if you look to the right of me, where the snow has melted around the base of the tree. If you look past me, about 150 yards to the higher ground, is where I filmed the video from.

After about an hour and a half of getting beat up by the crumbling ice layer we were walking on, we decided to concede. We came to an area of high ground that was exposed to the sun, where most of the snow had melted. So we climbed to the top where we could get the best possible vantage point, where we sat, watched and listened. This is where I filmed the following video.

As you can see, too much time at my desk this winter, and I haven't shed my winter layer.

My nephew Henry.

As we made our way back down, out of the snow line, we came across some large quadrupedal prints. They were fresh, as we did not see them on our way up. Henry and I had our heads on a swivel, as we thought they might be mountain lion tracks. They were 4 inches long, and 3.75 inches wide. We measured the distance between two tracks to be 39 inches. Though we found no evidence, on this short outing, of squatch activity, these prints made the day a bit more exciting.

Upon investigating it further, once I got home to the computer, I've come to the conclusion that these tracks are definitely not mountain lion. They definitely are canine of some sort. Whatever it was, it was huge! 4 inch paws are massive! Cougar prints are said to average 3-3.5 inches. CLICK HERE to see a nice comparison of large feline tracks, to canine.

Moral of the story is........ No matter what the conditions, or how short the day was, it is really great to get out into the field.

I'll get back out there again soon.

Interesting. Thanks for the info Annon.

Go Read Cliff!

I usually make you all aware when I read something I like from the bigfoot world. I am guilty of having fallen behind on that lately.

I'm sure most of you, already read Cliff Barackman's blog. He's posted some good stuff since I last mentioned it here on the blog. Instead of me listing them all, just CLICK HERE to go over to his blog and check it out. He recently made a trip out to the Olympic Peninsula, and it is his trips out into the field that I most enjoy reading about.

Check out my links on the right side of this page, for all the squatchers I read on a daily basis.

Final Episode of MonsterQuest? This could be it.

It has been mentioned, on, that Sierra Sasquatch could be the final episode of MonsterQuest, according to the show's executive producer, Will Yates. Read more about it on Cryptomundo by CLICKING HERE.

You can let your voice be heard, by the suits at History Channel, by CLICKING HERE. If you like the show, please write in and say so.

It is of my opinion that if they focused on more of the credible work, done in the bigfoot field, the show would attract many more viewers. Though it's interesting to hear about other Cryptozoological creatures, I think they tried to diversify too much, and it makes the show look more like science fiction, rather than a documentary style program. I think more bigfoot, and less fluff, would make the show much stronger. They didn't even do bigfoot episodes from Oregon or Washington, did they? Those are the squatchiest places on earth! I also think that if they mixed in a couple of chupacabra episodes, that would draw more viewers too. No, I'm not a chupa fan, but there are hundreds of reported sightings, and associated mutilations every year, and I know there is an interest in the subject, especially from the Latino community.

It's too bad, though I didn't care for a few of the episodes, I know that my son and I are going to be quite bummed out if it gets cancelled.

MonsterQuest: Jaime Avalos-Sierra Sasquatch Episode Wednesday, 8PM

I just wanted to remind everyone that there's a new squatch episode airing on MonsterQuest Wednesday, March 17 at 8PM on the History Channel. Sierra Sasquatch will be featuring Jaime Avalos, and the work he's done, following a suspected group of 3 juvenile squatches. If you're not familiar with his work, check out the videos, in the video bar, down on the lower right side of this page. Here below, is a video of Dr. Meldrum examining some of Jaime's casts, of his group of squatches, and verifying that casts from various locations, are matching up and looking to be from the the same group.

I also wanted to make you all aware that Jaime's got a new website started., and .net. It is in the beginning stages of development, but will slowly be coming together. There will be a lot more pictures and videos added to it in the near future. It isn't flashy, and is actually rather plain, but you can blame me for that. I've been trying to put it together for him. Neither one of us has much web development knowledge, but I have a little more free time to be helping him out. I'm glad to do it, as he has become a good friend, especially in this whole FELLOWSHIP OF THE SQUATCH quest I've become so involved in.

For those of you who read this, who have a site/blog, please make your readers aware of the upcoming MonsterQuest Episode. If they are like most of us, I'm sure they are all hungry for more sasquatch, especially on TV! Thanks!
