12 Ft Tall Bigfoot: Photo Update

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 7th, 2012

The biggest Bigfoot in North Bonneville will be unveiled at 7 p.m. today [July 6, 2012, in Washington State] at the main entrance to the town off Highway 14.

The arrival of the Great Elder will cap — at least for now — a program of regular Sasquatch sightings coordinated by the city’s Heritage Trails Committee. A whole family of the legendary Northwest woods inhabitants created by Ken Craig of Washougal has been placed on a quarter-mile paved loop around the community park.

The Great Elder, which is carved of wood, is by far the largest, standing 12 feet tall and weighing 2,000 pounds. His formal arrival kicks off the city’s annual Gorge Days festivities this weekend that include a classic car show, barbecue dinner and sock-hop. Source

Here is a photo of Ken Craig’s sculptures:

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    That sounds like a cool idea for decorating a park. Sadly, I doubt the statues will be able to stand there permanently without being vandalized. (I would say stolen, because 2000 pounds would really not stop some tool-using bipeds, but then where would a thief put it? In his “man cave”? Too big! In his back yard? Too obvious!)

    My father was the mayor of North Bonneville for a decade and I suggested making North Bonneville the sasquatch capital of the Columbia Gorge because of the number of sasquatch sightings in Skamania County where it was located.

    I am really pleased to see that the new town council has adopted the sasquatch ethos. This is truly welcome. North Bonneville is the location of a sasquatch presence on Christmas Eve, 1998 when my father found seventeen inch sasquatch tracks in his backyard. I was there at the time and inspected the tracks myself. They were eight inches wide at the toes and impressed four times deeper into the snow than my own prints. I weighed 195 pounds at the time.

    Several years later I saw the identical tracks in photos taken by Robert W. Morgan at Buncombe Hollow, Skamania County in 1975. It is remarkable that 23 years later the same creature was still in the county without being detected.

    Several members of staff at North Bonneville City Hall have seen a sasquatch including one witness who watched an eight footer walk across State Highway 14 in three steps. The city’s chief of police and his grandmother were harassed by another sasquatch in the environs of Beacon Rock.

    Now that North Bonneville has created the sasquatch sculptures I hope it does become a centre for sasquatch interest. North Bonneville is just a few miles from Stevenson where the annual Bigfoot Daze are held and where on April 1, 1969 the county commissioners made it an offence to harass or harm a sasquatch.

    Good luck to North Bonneville on this venture and I hope visitors to Cryptomundo will visit this beautiful city and take in the attractions nearby including the incredible Hot Springs Resort and the Skamania Lodge. Nature trails abound and the southern portion of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest – location of numerous sasquatch sightings – is just north of Stevenson.
