My family and I live on the outskirts of Truckee, California. We moved there back in 1999, right around September. It was two years after that when we would see a Bigfoot while out looking for a Christmas tree.
Even back then, being from Oregon originally, we had heard the stories of Bigfoot, but never once did I believe them, period. As far as I was concerned, Bigfoot was in the imagination of money-seekers, charlatans, and, of course, pot smoking hippies.
I was wrong, very, very wrong, however. Here is what we saw, and how scary it can be to come across a monster like this.
