Setting the Record Straight
Guest Editor:Blogger: Bud W. Lakeview
My name is Bud Walton and I worked for Block and Company on the Bluff Creek job in the years of 1957-1959. Bluff Creek is located in Northern California. There has been much rumor about Ray and Wilbur Wallace perpetrating the tracks that were found in 57-58 at the job site.
It has been said Ray Wallace made the tracks Gerry Crew found. This could not be further from the actual truth. When the tracks were made Ray was not in the area. I was one of the lucky ones that saw the tracks before the big craze started.
What people don't know is the tracks of Bigfoot were all over the area surrounding Bluff Creek before the job ever started. Another job that was going on in the same year was Salmon Creek near Horse Creek, California on the Klamath River. There too was found large barefoot tracks on the landings and road. This job was contracted by Pike and Sons out of Langlois,Oregon.
There was no contact between Wallace and Kirk Pike. Pike did not like Wallace because he under bid jobs just to get the contract. My son thought it important to refute the rumors that Wallace was the Bluff Creek Bigfoot. If he was, he had a flying saucer to get around in
