YEAR: 1973

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: August

STATE: Washington

COUNTY: Thurston County

LOCATION DETAILS: In an area... called The Bald Hills, near The Deschutes Falls Park. This area is between the Southwest corner of Mt. Rainier park and the town of Yelm.


OBSERVED: I will break these down into the three events, divided by the types of events. The first two are from hearing screams at night. The third is a brief sighting.

One night, when I was around nine years old, I was asleep under an open window at my Grandparent's house. Sometime during the night, I was awakened by a loud roaring scream from the woods across the yard and roadway. It was brief. It lasted just enough to wake me up and hear it continue for a few seconds. I didn't want to look out the window, but would likely have seen nothing, for at the time, there was very dense forest across the street. The scream seemed to come from within the woods. It took me a long time to get back to sleep.

Sometime later, I heard a scream in a documentary about bigfoot that was almost identical to what I heard that night. No one else in the house heard the screams, or just never said anything about it if they did.


ENVIRONMENT: In general, the area is very remote. My grandparents' house was at the edge of an open field, in the middle of a dense forest. The Deschutes River flowed near by.

I was in a house. The screams came from the North, maybe 100-200 yards into the dense forest across the roadway that lead to my grandparents' house.
