Lesley has left a new comment on your post "Newspaper Column, "Bigfoot: A Matter of Time"":
My name is Lesley Welburn. I'm a native of southern Oregon and a reader of Bigfoot Ballyhoo and other Bigfoot sites.This last week two friends and I went to Sru Lake and camped for 3 days.
The weather was somewhat tempered: snow showers and thunder storms two of the three days and nights. The reason for the trip was to eyewitness what the country up there is like.
The forest is incredible with huge stands of Port Orford Cedar and Douglas Fir. The lake itself is small but deep and is surrounded by timber.
We walked the area around the lake to look for tracks of animals. Deer, Elk,and plenty of Coon tracks were visible. On day two we hiked up the side of the mountain southeast of the lake. The snow was around five inches on the nearby old logging trail.
We hiked to the top of a steep rocky ridge to look down into the surrounding valley. On a very narrow game trail we came across tracks in the snow 18" long by 7" wide.
Not knowing if someone had made the tracks we scoped the entire area with field glasses. I will say if someone did make the tracks the question would be why,when and where did they go without leaving signs of leaving.
Nobody knew we were up there. Why would someone go up into snow country and walk a game trail with big cast on their feet? The trail is only accessible by hard hiking and there was no sign of anyone before us.
My conclusions is Bigfoot had walked the path just hours before we did. There's no way anyone can explain these tracks away as hoaxed or some other animal. All in all I'd say that the area around Sru Lake is strange and yet so beautiful
Thank you so much for such a great comment. I was wondering if snow was on the ground up at Sru. ... Linda Newton-Perry
