The Pacific Northwest is home to many things—the Space Needle, Starbucks, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and Bruce Lee to name a few, but it’s also home to the famous folklore of Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch. The myth states that the Sasquatch inhabits the forests of the Pacific Northwest, wandering and creating a whole world of followers behind him. Over the years many have searched for this creature and failed; yet a lot have created hoaxes of catching this beast. To this day no one has successfully captured Sasquatch, nor has anyone been able to prove he is real.

So in 2007, a group of twelve brave souls gathered their gear, packed their supplies, left everything in the real world behind them and set out into the depths of the Pacific Northwest to go on their own journey to find the beast in it’s natural habitat. A lot has happened throughout these years that words themselves could not explain, and now they’re sharing with you their documentation to tell their story about this legendary creature. I guess the only words of advice that any of them could give you is—Beware of Sasquatch!
