Big FootPeople on every continent claim to have seen the footprints of a large man like the mythological creature we call Bigfoot. In British Columbia, Canada, he is called Sasquatch; in the Himalayas of Asia he is called Yeti or the Abominable Snowman. The Amazon people call him Mapingauri. These myths gained little media attention until Roger Patterson took 24 feet of 16mm color film of a Bigfoot walking in the forest on October 20, 1967, near California s Bluff Creek Valley just north of Willow Creek. Roger had become fascinated with Bigfoot after reading a press report earlier in the year. His friend Bob Gimlin was with him. The 24 feet of movie film were a big hit with the media.There have been many reports of large footprints and sightings of a large manlike, hairy creature near Mount Everest in the Himalayas. Footprints were seen by Sir Edmund Hillary and his crew during his historic climb in 1953.
