Burney, and i remembered also as we observed this creature it did not look back at us, and it was walking in front of us on the opposite side of the road next to a tall caltrans 55 mile speed limit sign. A approaching car almost hit the creature,as the car was coming down the hill.

OBSERVED: I believe that i saw bigfoot, with two other witnesses in the vehicle with me. I seen a huge ape like animal that was reddish brown color, with long straggley looking hair hanging off it's arms, and legs. I also noted as it walked, its legs at the knees were bent as it walked its legs never straightened out like a humans legs would. The arms of this bigfoot were long and swayed as he walked and he was very tall, i noted that he walked next to a tall sign on the highway and his shoulders were in line with the 55 mile speed limit highway sign on hwy 299. I would also say that this creature was around 7 to 8 foot in height, and about 500lbs, or more in weight.
