Bigfoot is rumored to be living in the mountains and forests of northwestern United States (northern California, Ohio, Oregon, Washington, and Idaho) and Western Canada (British Columbia and Alberta).
The highest rate of sightings and recovered footprints are in the Northwestern part near the Oregon border around the Humboldt Forest, Bluff Creek, Hoopa, Weitchpec, Orleans, Somes Bar and Willow Creek, located between Crescent City to the North and Eureka to the South; between Interstate 5 and Highway 101 on Highways 299 and 96. Other California cities with a number of reported sightings are Mt. Lassen, Mt. Shasta, Weed, Round Mountain, Elk Creek, Caribou, Happy Camp, Clear Creek, Trinity Alps, Weaverville, Salyer, Crescent Mills, Lake Oroville, Hayfork, Vacaville, the Lake Tahoe area, Yosemite, Mammoth Lakes, Bear Valley; and in the coastal cities of Eureka, Yreka, Fort Bragg, Orick, Crescent City, San Rafael, Olema, Hayward and as far south as El Capitan Reservoir in San Diego County near the Mexican border where a family of 3 were sighted.
The deserted areas of Southern California are the home of the Desert Sasquatch and he has been reported several times only 12 miles away from San Diego. The Palmdale-Lancaster area of the Mojave Desert and Edward’s Air Force Base are the “hottest areas” in terms of sightings but credible sightings also occurred at Lake Isabella, Piute Mountains, China Lake Naval Weapons Center, Fort Irwin Military Reservation, Tehachapi, Monolith, Mojave, Edward’s Air Force Base, Rosamond, Lancaster, Palmdale, Victorville, Hesperia, Pearblossom, Valyermo, Apple Valley, Twenty-nine Palms Marine Base, Joshua Tree National Monument, Colton, Corona, Riverside, Ontario, Redlands, Beaumont, Yucaipa, Hemet, , Lake Elsinore, Indio, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Superstition Mountain, Manzanita Indian Reservation, Cleveland National Forest, and Cahuilla Indian Reservation.
A lot of those experiences have come in recent years from the Blue Mountains and especially in the high country just a few miles east of Dixie, a town of a couple hundred people on U.S. Highway 12, some 10 miles east of Walla Walla. Mt. St. Helens which has always carried legends of Bigfoot is a famous spot and last but not least a little town called Tete Jaune Cache, about eighty miles west of Jasper, Alberta.
