Access To Ape Caves
cold but clear
mid morning
We were in the parking area of the Ape Caves on Mt. St. Helen's
in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest


Description of event: My wife and I drove up to the Ape caves. I got out and was playing with my 18 month old son. I started to sing a piece from an opera so he could hear the echo. After a few minutes I heard a few loud "whoops" coming from the woods. At this time all the birds in the area stopped making any noise. My wife said "Hey, do a coyote call." So I howled like a coyote and we heard a few more "whoops" farther away. She then pick up a few pieces of wood and banged them together. We then we heard a loud grunt. We thought it could be elk, but the feeling in the air at this time was a little creepy. We then drove about a half mile away to the Trail of Two Forest. We were admiring some birds. We then heard a low grown and all the birds disappeared. We then decided to leave.
