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.

BIGFOOT: More Prints From The Lake Tahoe Area and Surrounding Sierras

Sorry to have neglected posting anything in the past couple months. We haven't had a chance to get out of town often enough, and when we did, our trips were rather uneventful. I will however catch you all up on some of the more interesting things that I haven't posted yet.

This is a print from a trackway we found near the area where C had his sighting (see)Christmas Weekend, about 3 weeks after his sighting. You can compare the size of it with my size 11.5 boot print below it. Click on Image to Enlarge. Note that the melt adds about 3 inches to it, as it was sloped downhill to the southeast so the rising sun would hit that back of that heel, and melt it away, elongating the heel. You can pretty easily see where the original heel impression came down.

This is a pic of the trackway itself. That's my buddy on the right. If you click on the pic to enlarge it, you can see that I marked the stride in the long yellow lines. A human gait usually does not straddle a line like that... a squatch's gait does. The insteps line up perfectly. The back heel's are marked in blue. Stride length was 5 to 6 feet. The trackway came up a steep rocky slope, through manzanita, from the top left of the pic. Not a place a human could have traversed, especially in those conditions. On the left side of the trackway, there were some human boot prints that were fresher, along with a rabbit hopping through the snow, and some canine prints.

This is a print found in a patch of snow, outside a cabin located just a couple miles from the south shore on Lake Tahoe. back in Feb. Click on Photo to Enlarge. The lady and her husband found it and sent it to me for my opinion. It was unusually warm at times this winter in the Tahoe area, nor did we receive a lot of snow. This was a lone print in one of the remaining patches of snow in their yard. Definite toe line, with decent toe impressions. She said it was on a slope and you can see where the outside of the foot, and heel slipped down and made a secondary impression of the outer edge of the foot. Looks to be 16 to 17 inches. It was a warm day and that print had been in direct sunlight at one point in the day, and also some light rain. Not a lot of fallen pine debris in the print, so I'm thinking it was made the night or two before. She hadn't noticed it the day before. Before finding the print, they also heard some loud crashing in the trees down the road from their house, which freaked them out a bit, since there were no other neighbors around. Then they came upon the track. The couple's grandson actually saw it first, pointed and said, "Bigfoot!"
