#10 Rafting on Rogue River sighting
(January 12, 2010)
On a rafting trip on the Rogue River from Galice, Oregon to Agness, Oregon in July 2008, we stopped at a camp 1 the first night. Next morning we left and decided to go on past camp 2 and raft till dark. After finding a very nice place to go ashore we stopped at this river bar with an old abandoned cabin back some 75 feet. This place was called Misty Falls. After dark we were sitting around the old fireplace talking about the next day. My close friend needed to go visit nature so I went outside with her.
It was then we heard from a distance a sound of rocks clanging together. We didn’t think it was anything so we returned to the cabin to hit our sleeping bags for the night. It must have been around one hour later that the sound of somebody walking around the cabin woke my friend up.
She shook me because all of us were in the cabin. We listened to a sound of something outside messing around with the backpacks as you could hear cans falling on the ground, then some kind of very low shatter. Then this growl rang out from right beside the door.
Everybody was awakened by it. One of the guys jumped up and swung the door open to find a giant hair-covered manlike thing throw a pack at him. He yelled out “Hey what the ...!” When he did, this thing took off through the woods. We could hear the sound of it walking on the floor of the forest as it left. It came back two more times during the night and made horrible screams like we’ve never heard before or since. Then a return scream from something far off...
When daylight came we grabbed the packs which were emptied all over the ground and got out of there.
This thing left behind tracks like is on your website: large bare feet. We reported this to the Rogue River Ranger Station, and never heard anymore about it.
