July 2004

July 17, 2004 My two sons and I were camping this weekend at the One Potato Mineral campground...just up the Forest Service Access Road from Mineral Camp. (Sharp Creeks/Bohemia Mine area). We were hiking up the steep road leading to the Ghost Town mining area in the early evening. We kept talking about a "strange bird sound"...the "Whoop-Whoop- Whoop"...and just dismissed it as some weird bird. I happened across your website because I was looking for information on the Bohemia Mine. I had chills and goosebumps when I read your journal entry. We also heard "heavy" footsteps outside our tent on Saturday night, July 17th. Then in the very early morning...around 4:00am...I could smell something REALLY nasty. Here...something had "Marked" our tarp and our tent. The urine smell was SO strong...we had to leave our tent tarp behind. I really do believe NOW that we had a "Sasquatch Encounter". Whoa!
