The waterfall runs under the road and empties into Wolf Creek. This is where we had our lunch. Also, this is in the general area of the Loon Lake sighting and Tyee sighting. A police officer saw the animal in the Tyee sighting.
Polly has left a new comment on your post "Sally says, "Good grief!"...":
Did forest monters really kill the missing men of Azalea Lake? The speculation has always been that the men were most likely killed or abducted by the giant bigfoot creatures seen there in 1947 and 48. Lyle Bachman and another man (name unknown to me) were felling trees for Coos Bay Lumber Co. when the men came up missing and were presumed dead by company search parties.
A camp cook that still remembers the ordeal said the search party did find a tree stump covered in blood making them believe that one or both of the men were killed by the forest giants. It was quite clear to all the members of the logging camp that those men got to close to the hairy creatures seen there in those years.
Bachman's son is still alive but really doesn't want to say if he or his mother (deceased) thought the forest monsters were responsible. Bachman's son told me he was once going to sign a affidavit but thought he better not because he wasn't sure if the giants really killed his dad or not. He states he believes that is what happen to his dad but can't be positive. His dad told the family of a race of tall hairy giant like wild men looking creatures that watched him and his partner fell trees on the mountain surrounding the lake.
His dad was never heard from again and was pronounced dead in 1949. Coos Bay Lumber left the lake area in 1950. The lake is about 20 miles from the infamous Sru lake in the Siskiyous.
