There's an 11 foot Yeti in the middle of nowhere. The only little shack/store that was open when I got there had crafts and homemade pickles.

Yeti Santa.

Bigfoot Statue - Ranchita Yeti

Ranchita Yeti decked out in his holiday hat. I didn't know that Christmas would show us another side of these attractions. We asked to meet the guy who made the Yeti, in order to see the options we could get if we wanted to buy our own one, but he wasn't in at the time we were there. The people were very friendly though.

Yeti statue.

Bigfoot Statue - Ranchita Yeti

This is an 11 foot tall white Yeti or Sasquatch or Bigfoot (whatever you call them). It's got a pink face, hands and feet.

[Joe Rauh, 01/01/2008]

You can have your very own Yeti statue, custom-made in Ranchita. Optional: Solar powered eyes that will glow at night, a motion detector with alarm in case it tries to walk, and an external motion detector with a recording feature allowing the owner to have the monster say anything when someone approaches it: from a loud growl, to a friendly "Eat at Joes" depending on its use.
