The Legend Of Bigfoot Roaming Through Oregon Forests Has Inspired Imaginations Since 1904
The legend of Bigfoot (a.k.a. Sasquatch or Yeti), has existed for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. Ancient people all over the country told stories about large, hairy, human-like creatures, and most of those tales were terrifying – so scary that the people often didn’t dare to say its name out loud. Today, Bigfoot is more fascinating than terrifying, and it’s one of Oregon’s most famous legends.
