Hiking Sasquatch Country: Exploring Bigfoot's Backyard

Hiking Sasquatch Country: Exploring Bigfoot's Backyard is an all new book by Wendy and Gary Swanson. Here's the description from Amazon:

"Five years of hiking and exploring the mountains long rumored to be home of the elusive Sasquatch, have resulted in a hiking guide like no other! Not only is the reader given driving directions and GPS coordinates, but also a complete photographic journal of the hikes available for online viewing. Take a preview of each hike on your laptop or tablet, to have an advanced look at your destination. 39 hikes and another 37 historic places of interest with photos of almost all destinations are included. Read about the "possible" Bigfoot encounters by the authors, and the historic records of the murders, like the "Almeda Mine Disaster." This story was brought to life by research into old records by the noted author, Zane Grey, who had a cabin on the Rogue River not far from the site where the miners were killed by "mysterious apelike creatures!" Hike into one of America's few remaining wilderness areas, and you may also come to understand why the authors' started their journey as critical of any possibility of Sasquatch, they now agree that, 'with the vast amount of wilderness areas that no human has ever touched, combined with several unexplainable occurrences, the possibility that Bigfoot creatures exist certainly would explain a lot of things, and it's entirely believable now that we've been in its beautiful home!' They ask that you treat its home with respect and tread lightly while you enjoy your visit!"

 The book has 39 chapters on hiking routes and historic sites, as well as chapters on Bigfoot sightings. I think it looks pretty interesting. It has a total of 138 pages.

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.
