REPORT DETAIL

Description of event: A friend and I were walking up the Fanton Trail and about 100 yards into it I saw what appeared to me as a Bigfoot impression right in the middle of the trail. There was no doubt as to what it was and as my friend caught up with me I asked him if he saw what I saw. There was no doubt in his mind of what he saw seeing either. The print was about 14-16 inches long but what impressed me was the width which was about 6-8 inches just below the toes.
We walked about a mile up and continued to see these prints, I was armed with a .45 automatic and my friend with a 9mm so we felt safe but continued slowly with no smells or incidents. After about a mile I noticed another set of prints only smaller come right into the trail this kind of made my friend and I a little more nervous, about 20 feet later a third set appreared. This set was a little smaller than the second but we were sure that it was a third. At this time we decided to turn back. We smelled nothing, heard nothing but felt as if there was a pressance that knew we were there.
