Description of event: Hello,

I don't know how interested you guys are in outdated reports, but here we go:

It was the summer of 1975 I was 12 years old. Me and my cousin Pauline who was 14 years old were riding my motorcycle in a farm field outside of Enumclaw Washington about a quarter of a mile from my house. It was a clear summer evening not a cloud in the sky approximately 8:45 PM. The sun was just starting to set below the horizon.
We had been riding my motorcycle in the fields for some time until it started to get dark, so we began heading back toward the house. Pauline was sitting on the back seat of my motorcycle as we proceeded for home. I had not gone very far when I heard Pauline let out a scream. I immediately stopped the motorcycle and asked what was wrong? She didn't say anything just pointed. I immediately looked in the direction she was pointing and saw a very large, tall lanky built creature walking at a brisk pace in our direction. I sat there in amazement for a few seconds watching the creature, in the meantime Pauline had gotten too scared and hopped off the back of my bike and started running for home.

Unlike my cousin, I was more curious than scared for some reason.
Most likely do to the fact I figured I could outrun it on my bike if I had to.

So I sat there watching it for approximately another 30 seconds or so until it was within about 50-75 yards of me. Close enough to just start making out its facial features.
It was like nothing I had ever seen before and it was very big.

At that point, I took off for home as fast as my bike could take me.

The best I can describe it is:
It was very tall and lanky in build, it walked with a slight forward hunch.
Its arms had a very pronounced swaying motion back and forth as it walked.
The arms were long and the hands seemed to be positioned at or a little below the knees as it walked. The facial features were very human like.

My relatives said we must have seen a bear, I can tell you for certain, and it was no bear.

Still to this day I don't understand why the creature kept walking toward me, it did not seem to be deterred by my presence. It made no threatening gestures, nor did it seem to care that I was in its path.

Another note:
A few months before the sighting, I had just arrived home from school at around 4:00 PM. No one else was home at the time. I heard an incredibly loud scream it seemed to originate from the side of our house.
By the volume of the scream I could tell it was very close. The scream was very terrifying. I have heard other Bigfoot screams on TV " Bigfoot" documentaries and the scream I heard that day sounded very similar.
