Hiking on Devil's Rest trail from Multnomah Falls/Larch Mt. trail, approximately 1/2 mile on uphill part of trail.


Description of event: My husband was up hill of me on the trail about 100' ahead when we both heard a strong "Whoop, Whoop" sound deeper in the forest away from the trails. We both stopped at the same time and both of us are natives and have never heard an animal whoop in the woods. We listened to hear if it would repeat, it didn't. It was clear and deep and bit of a distance away. We continued on feeling the sound wasn't directed toward us and only saw one other person on the upper part of the trail the entire time of our hike.

I have worked for a retail store for 18+ years. I have also drove truck, and did a little work with the BLM and USFS. I have not been affiliated with any other organization, only with OBF. I have had an interested in Sasquatch for many years. I have lived in Oregon all of my life. I have a little experience in tracking wildlife and knowledge on the mountains and forests of Southern Oregon and parts of Northern California. My research has been personal, but now I want to help others understand what they have experienced.
