This is my recollection of a recent sasquatch encounter where I was lucky enough to witness one running very close to me. I startled it with my flashlight and it bolted off down the hill. I was able to follow its movement with my light and got a glimpse of reddish-brown hair about 2 inches long, as well as yellow eyeshine. The eyeshine was about chin level with me. However, I was standing around 2.5ft above the surface he was running on. I’m 6ft tall so I have estimated the height to be somewhere between 7.5-8.5ft. Gauging from the eyeshine I have estimated his distance from me to be between 12-15ft. Judging by the sound, the footsteps proved to have a lot of surface. Each footstep made a thud which indicates that this creature was very heavy. This was the closest encounter I have ever had so far.
