Hey, that's a great point.

I prefer google earth for my own ends, although here in Alaska there isn't enough coverage to do what I can do on my own.

But in the Philippines, and in the lower '48 it is just stunning what it can do. The distance calculator, for example, puts the lie to claims made with regularity about how remote their little "Area X's" are.

I apparently left the site marked on my own google earth. The first thing that stands out to me is the logging rotation. Not one inch of ground untouched, but its like mowing the grass in sections. I can see at least five distinct ages of clear-cut patterns, probably more. But you are not a cable-length from a log yarder anywhere in the entire region.

Patterson involved himself in several track finds before 1967 (Walla Walla, Erion Ranch, Laird Meadows). They were all variants of his final Bluff Creek 1967 version. I have not looked closely at them but it would be an interesting exercise to see if they correlate with the shape feedback given to him by the camera store operator in Yakima (documented in The Making of Bigfoot.).

That's interesting. I thought the conclusion of the interaction with the owner resulted in a pair that indeed did so. Did the camera guy see two versions? I think so.

I loaned my book out, so I can't re-read that section. I got three grand in overdue book fees stacked up so far though, it's going to take over my retirement account in 4.7 years.
