Bigfoot and the Buried A-Frame

The reigning "Hide & Seek" champion is alive in well in this great stop off. Support the cause and grab some cool Yeti swag while sharing a story with good people! [Mike Larson, 09/03/2016]
Bigfoot and the Buried A-Frame

Stopped here and glad we did. It was a great visual of the impact of the mudslide from the Mt. St. Helen's eruption. Not sure how long the house will last -- glad we saw it while we could. Bigfoot Statue was fun photo op.

Bigfoot and the Buried A-Frame

Seems things change over the years. I saw this A-frame and surrounding area shortly after it was opened up after the mountain blast and they'd started digging out inside. THAT was interesting to see. It no longer is worth a stop. Just someone trying to make a buck on tourists. No upkeep at all. Skip this in your trip around the mountain.

We wish they'd left the mud mayhem and would open up the A-Frame walk-thru again, but still think it's worth a quick look in tandem with the Bigfoot statue. Also, we're counting on another eruption -- future generations can tour a Buried Tourist Trap.


Bigfoot Statue

Pictures online are pretty cool, but you really don't get how big this Bigfoot is until you see it in person. We thought it was well worth the drive. Too bad the gift shop was so lame; not one postcard of the statue!
