Caught On Cam: Bigfoot In Colorado?

Several Claim To Have Seen Bigfoot Roaming Around

GREEN MOUNTAIN FALLS, Colo. — Is Bigfoot real? It’s a question that many have asked since the first sightings back in the 1800s when explorers began talking about an ape-like creature that walked like a man. Many scientists have brushed off reports that the creatures exists, and so far no real proof has been presented.

Daniel Masias hopes to be the one to prove Bigfoot’s exists. His fascination began in 1982 when he claimed to have seen two of the creatures near his Green Mountain Falls home one morning.

“In the winter, when there was snow, we noticed there were footprints. The prints didn’t have shoes on them; they were just bare feet,” he recalled. Masias described the creatures as hairy and less than 6 feet tall, but the footprints they left behind were not human-like. Masias said one creature has a foot span of about 12 inches, the other about 7 inches.

”So, not really big, about average human size,” he said.

When asked why no one has seen these creatures or taken pictures with current technology, Masias said he thinks the creatures are coming through a wormhole, an intergalactic travel portal from one galaxy to another.

Masias isn’t the only one to have claimed to have seen Bigfoot. Ken French, a ranger for the Pikes Peak District, remembers seeing a strange creature near Centennial Point, near the summit of the peak. “I saw a dark uniformed color individual walking on the snow, and I stopped my tour bus and ask for binoculars,” recalled French.

He thinks the creature was about 1,000 yards away. “It was big and dark and it had a big gate, so it looked unusual to me.” French remembered that it walked like a person, but he felt it was odd at the time.

“It’s not unusual to see people on a snow slope, usually on a ridge line walking, but you do see people up there occasionally, but it’s usually a couple of people,” said French.

After the numerous sightings on Pikes Peak, ranger put up a Bigfoot crossing sign to warn visitors of what they could be in store for when they drive up to the 14,110 foot summit.

Masias is convinced he will get a picture of the creature, he thinks is Bigfoot. His motion-sensor camera already has snapped pictures that no one can explain, including one he said is an alien.Tak Landrock

    This post could be easily titled: Here’s Cryptozoology’s Problem.

    We have, on the one hand, a ranger who may have seen one. Rangers are…well, good luck getting much more reliiable witnesses. It certainly doesn’t seem to me that a person up there would have looked out of place to him; he even says you regularly see them there. This one looked different.

    Then, we have the alien guy.


  2. Yewlon responds:

    I was impressed for the most part especially that they included the rangers sighting, they they started going on about the other guy getting pictures of aliens and I just groaned.

  3. arewethereyeti responds:

    While Ranger Ken French’s report makes for an interesting anecdote, it’s only real value stems from its ability to help identify/confirm likely areas for future study; i.e., no matter how reliable the witness, without some kind of evidence to back it up, it’s only another “I saw Bigfoot” story.

    Then, of course, we have Mr. Masias’ alleged alien picture. As far as “that” evidence is concerned, to me it looks like he all he “caught” was a photo of his shower curtain… 😉

    A perfect example of the nature of cryptozoological reports, and of the volatility of the science itself… a guy finds human-sized bare footprints in snow, in Colorado, on a mountainside, in winter; good BF report, eh? Believeable, because he also claims to have seen two creatures of a size corresponding to the prints.

    Uh Oh – he also voices buzz-word loaded opinions of the creatures’ travel methods, immediately relegating him to a category inhabited by physicists and other scientific weirdos, and destroying his cedibility!

    Ah, but now comes a Ranger, with a more straightforward report of a single creature seen striding thru snow a mere thousand yards away… a thousand yards!? Three thousand feet away!!
    Go ahead, measure off three thousand feet down the block. How much detail can you pick out, even with binox, at that distance?

    But wait, the first guy has a photo! Let’s see. Oh. Great.

    I’m gettin’ too old for this.

    There is a typo in this article. There is no “Centennial Point” near Pike’s Peak. The correct name and location is Sentinel Point. Here is a link.

    Happy Bigfoot hunting!
