I'm Matthew Davis. I just had to tell about this thing I ran across this last summer, August 26, 2009, while working for Mt. Thielsen Trail Expeditions. My party of six hikers left Lemolo Lake on a four day hike to Mt. Thielsen. We hiked the first day and made our camp at Crystal Meadows. That evening was uneventful.
Early the next morning, we set out and hiked till dusk, and camped at Old Trapper Springs. In the night several in the party said that there was a sound of someone walking around in the forest right inside the treeline. It made a weird loud whistle sound on three occasions.
At daybreak we started out and right away felt that somebody was following us. We could hear something cracking limbs and a sound of rocks beating together just off the trail. Several in the party became quite alarmed at the sound. Then around ten AM we stopped for a break, almost right away this hairy manlike thing crossed the trail only thirty feet from us.
It was something between a gorilla and a man. It was very large built and eight foot tall or taller and covered in a short reddish brown coat of hair. Several of the group freaked out and started screaming and crying, while others tried to calm them down. After taking a vote we decided to go back to the meadow to camp the night as it was more in the open.
Next day we made it back to base camp and reported what we saw. A forest service lady named Wanda came and took the report and told everybody that it was a Sasquatch we saw. Several blurted out, "That's an old Indian legend isn't it?" The Lady said , "No it's not! We get alot of these sightings every year. No one in the party believed in Sasquatch. Now they're 6 of us that do. Thanks for letting me tell our sighting.
