Redding, California
December 1994

Interstate 5, approx 25 miles north of Redding, California

It has been years since I have even really thought about my confrontation with the Sasquatch...and I guess that I just feel that I need to tell someone about it finally. I am thirty now but at the time I was about 24. It was in December of '94 just north of Redding, Ca by about 15 miles. I was living in the San Francisco area at the time and had not seen my father for a few years. He lived in Silverdale, Washington. I decided that I would go see him for Christmas.

I drove a little Nissan Sentra the whole way there, but something happened on the way back. It was about 1 am in the morning as I was driving South on I-5. I was about 25 north of Redding, Ca when my headlights started to dim slowly and I was losing my radio station. I guessed that it was probably the battery. I didn't want to stop the car for fear of really being stranded out in the woods on I-5 — which was deserted at that time of night in that remote area. I managed to make it to a really small rest stop, which was also deserted at that time of night, but its one saving grace was it had a phone. I think the day was Tuesday and believe me, at that time of night it was freezing outside, it must have been at best about 10 degrees outside. I didn't have a coat with me so I decided to call the state patrol for a ride into town for a battery. They said that I was only getting a ride because it was so cold out and that they would send a car and to just wait.

What happened next I would never have thought would ever happen to me...maybe that's why I have never told anyone — I didn't want anyone to think that I was being stupid or just weird. As I sat in the cold on the hood of the car watching my own breath something came over me. You know how the hair on the back of your neck stands on end and you get a feeling in your stomach that makes you feel sick? Yeah, that's the feeling... well... I was feeling it. There was only one street light in the small parking lot and that was just above the phone... and I was parked about 30 feet away so everything around me had a weird glow to it — or at least it did to me at the time. There was no wind at the time but it sounded like there was something in the woods... as the whole parking lot was surrounded by woods. The parking lot was just a small road with about 8 parking spots... it was small for a rest-stop. Over the next 20 minutes my life was turned upside down. I would hear grunts from the trees that were right besides my car. I don't know why I didn't get in my car... I was just kind of frozen there. I made no sounds at all... I knew it was just some kind of animal and not really worried... or so I made myself believe at the time. After about 20 minutes of this happening on and off, it finally happened. Never in my like will I forget the sight or the feelings that I felt at that one moment in time. My body froze, it was like my heart stopped beating and all the heat from my body was sucked away somehow and my mind locked on the only thing around...and then it was there.

As I was looking at the phone, time stopped for me... I heard it next to me and I remember it just like this. As I turned my head from the phone to the woods just to my right... its like it was in slow motion... and just as my vision saw the woods, that were no more that 10 feet from me... it walked out of the woods towards me and stopped about 5 feet from me. He or she was about 7 to 8 foot tall and thick around the chest and hips with equally thick arms and legs. The thing about it that I remember the most was the hair. The hair was very dark brown or so it looked in the light... but it was shiny... not like oily shiny but super clean shiny. It just stood there looking at me for at least 5 minutes without moving at all. I was frozen in place completely! I can't remember any feeling that I might have had at the time except for the fear... but it was weird... it was like it was staring at me as if to try to figure out what it was looking at.

Then it was startled and looked toward the interstate. I thought I could have had a heart attack at that moment... for something so large, when it was startled it changed its stance in an flash then froze again. Then after 5 seconds or so turned and ran back into the woods exactly where it had come out from.

Not 5 seconds later the California State Patrol car rolled up... that's what must have startled the creature for sure. The patrolman honked for me and finally had to get out and come to get me. I never told him what happened... he probably thought he had to get out and get me for some stupid reason. I hardly spoke a word the whole ride. Later the next day when I had gotten a new battery and found a ride back to my car nothing had changed except the fact that there was now other people there... just resting. My fear came back... and the hair on the back of my next stood up... even though it was about noon and sunny. I couldn't keep my eyes off the spot where the creature had come out of the woods. For some strange reason I kept expecting it to come running out again. But after I had finished my repairs I found myself doing the strangest thing of all. I actually walked into the woods about 20 feet or so in the same spot that he had come out of and retreated into the night before. And just to let you know... I didn't turn around and walk back to me car... I just walked backwards the whole way... all the time scanning the woods for him... praying that I would not see him again. I have not driven through that area since... I know that it's stupid but it did something to me. It made me afraid like nothing else. I believe. I believe in something that 99% of the world says does not exist and that's what scares me the most because I know that it does... and if he can, what else can? I don't know that you believe me or not and to be honest, I don't' care. I know that it happened and I wish that it would not happen to anyone. I have never told anyone... and in writing this brought back all the fear of that night. If you have any questions about this or anything else... you may contact me but please do not tell anyone my name or email address. Thank you.

Platina, Shasta County, California
July 2000

Howling and screams, not a sighting. The reader should be aware, that "sounds" heard by informants are not necessarily from sasquatches and can usually be attributed to something else. I don't usually upload 'strange sound' reports for this reason unless the witnesses or informant actually saw a creature make the sound being reported. In this case, the reported strange sounds could have been anything. Bobbie Short

My son and I dredge for gold for a hobby. We have a claim on Cottonwood Creek about 1-1/2 miles west of Platina (Shasta County), California. My aunt has 10 acres with a house on Cottonwood Creek and our claim is on the adjacent BLM land. Section 19, Township 29 North, Range 9 West, M. D. M., County of Shasta, State of California. West 1100 feet, more or less from the Northeast Corner of Section 19, where the North line of said section intersects the Middle Fork of Cottonwood Creek, approximately 1.5 miles west of Platina.

One August night three years ago, we heard strange howling and screams. We have never been able to positively identify the source. I have heard mountain lions before. It did not sound like a lion. And I have heard a lot of different noises that bears make and I don't think it was a bear. My son and I have smelt awful "gamie" stenches at different times - day and night. The last time I smelled that odor was about midnight on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend - our last visit to the claim. That night we also heard something-large step on an occasional large branch on the ground that would snap loudly.

We were not able to locate where the noise was coming from. We were sleeping in the back of a pickup and it was breezy that night. When I would smell the animal, it would be a strong smell like it was nearby, and I would shine the flashlight all around but couldn't see anything. We have thought these "occurrences" to be bear signs. But recently I was surfing the web and listened to some of the recordings reported to be Bigfoot howls and screams. They sounded remarkably close to what we have heard, yet not exactly the same.

One recording was howls, and other screams. Both recordings had similarities to what we heard. What we heard was more like a very loud howl that started out like a cow or bull's "MOOOOO" and then escalated into a scream like that of a man scream at the top of his lungs at first then escalating further into an even wilder scream. It did it twice with in about 30 seconds. The actual howling scream lasted about 10 or 15 seconds. The howling scream un-nerved us. My son to this day does not like to go out after dark when we are up there. © Jeff Chambers

Shasta County, California
Sunday, April 20, 2003

Here in Shasta County, California I have already heard of one sighting in a populated area at Mountain Gate near Interstate 5 (last weekend, April 13, 2003) Bigfoot-like beast crossing rural drive way caught in headlights.

Another sighting on the Sacramento River @ Anderson River Park along nature trail late at night could be seen by silhouette. Sighting @ Shasta Caverns by tour guide and tourist in 2000...getting to be a lot of sightings here in our area...These are all sightings by different people over the last year or so. Might focus in our area for research...not far from southern Oregon, Willow Creek, Hay Fork, Mt. Shasta and the Mt. Lassen areas...at worst researchers would have a variety of camping opportunities.

We just moved to northern Ca on the Lassen side. I have always had an interest in Bigfoot sighting/vocalizations. Some of them are pretty damn hulky. Each time I’ve gone camping back in the back country, I would research those areas on the net for any Bigfoot sightings. Only once camping at Medicine Lake 2010 had I heard something that shouldn’t have been happening. North of the lake there is an old magma flow. It was just after 3:15-3:20 am. I had gone outside the camper to pee when I heard what sounded like tree knocking in the distance. I just stood there and listened to it until it stopped. It wasn’t hard to figure out which direction it was coming from. It was just north of the lake toward the flow. I wanted to go up in the morning to look around, but the family had plans to go to the lava caves and we left the next day. Now that I’m going to be living near Lassen I plan on going back and looking around. But this wasn’t the reason I wanted to post on this site. Now that we are getting settled into our home, I’ve been doing a lot of work outside I’ve heard coyotes other animals. I grew up in the North West but on 3 occasions now I have heard something out there that didn’t sound anything like any dogs, coyotes or elk I’ve ever heard. It will make the hair stand up on back of your neck. On two of them, I would almost say they where calling out to each other. My son was there for the New Years from Humboldt State. He loves backpacking in the back country. He came in from outside and asked me to hurry up and come outside to hear these howling/cries he said were calling to each other. He had never heard anything like this before - one was close and two were in the distance. It made him feel uneasy. It had stopped by the time I got outside. I hope to record it next time I hear it and share it. Last week we had coyotes come up from the creek, You could hear them in the distance and they sound so different.

Happy New Year 2015

Creekfoot: I do not think you are stupid or crazy. I have seen enough to fill a life time, yes they do exist. There are many more who know they are here than will admit to it. far more than 1%. I have detected 2 main reasons why people live in denial. # 1 is the nut case thinking that you would be thought of as being crazy. #2 is the mind of man, thinking that the world is made up as the man being superior and the only other is what they call dumb animals, These beings are smart and with the ability to out smart man himself. They are not hunting us, they know where we are. Do we know where they are? Not as a general rule. No we don't. Nightwind
