Bigfoot Carving

Very cool and well-carved 14-foot-tall Bigfoot. He is no longer holding a raccoon but now a surfboard, for some reason.

[Connie in Seattle, 04/14/2016]

It's more likely a snowboard in this neck of the woods. This Bigfoot replaced the previous raccoon Bigfoot, which has been moved to the backyard near the picnic table.

Bigfoot Statue Holding a Raccoon

A brand new 14' tall sasquatch standing in a waving pose where Bigfoot holding a raccoon formerly stood. Bigfoot Statue Holding a Raccoon is still present but has been moved further down the hill. A shorter (seated) sasquatch is located on the park bench behind the espresso stand. Another sasquatch can be seen inside the window of the building just left of park bench. Several Bigfoot signs posted. Friendly staff and great coffee at espresso stand.

Wooden Bigfoot Statue

Approx. 2 miles past Index-Galena Road on US Highway 2 East stands a wooden Bigfoot Statue which provides a great photo op. Also here is a sign that indicates this spot being a filming site for the 1987 movie "Harry And The Hendersons."

There are restrooms here as well as a small store and a perfect view of Mount Index.
