Motorhome driver reports sighting around 7am near Jasper
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
PROVINCE: British Columbia
LOCATION DETAILS: It was on my right as I was driving, less than an hour to the park - perhaps the last hydro clearing before the park?
NEAREST TOWN: Prince George BC, close to Jasper
NEAREST ROAD: Jasper highway from P.G.
OBSERVED: I saw one of these creatures while I was driving our motorhome from Prince George (BC) to Jasper Park. As soon as I saw it, I realized it was a Sasquatch. Difficult to say exact height, but much taller than a human ...perhaps 8'. The facial hair was not like a beard. A primate like face could be seen through coarse dark hairs. The hands could be seen moving at knee height as he walked toward the highway in the hydro clearing of the forest. It was about 6:45am, on a clear summer morning (I need to check our travel log, but likely August 14, 2005) My wife and kids were sleeping at the time, but my wife woke up and it was the first thing I told her. Unfortunately I could not find the camera at hand, and decided not to bother going back. To be honest I wasn't too interested at the time for some reason ... it was like, ok I have seen a moose, a Grizzly bear, and now a Sasquatch !
ALSO NOTICED: no
OTHER WITNESSES: No other direct witness, told my wife after sighting
OTHER STORIES: After I was home to Ontario, my father said he had read some sightings reported in the paper while I was gone in the same areas (northern BC?)
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Aproximately 7am (morning). It wasn't raining, perhaps some cload though.
ENVIRONMENT: forest on each side of clearing
