I put out a call for Bigfoot and UFO sightings and got in this report of a Bigfoot crossing Hwy 41 in California. Although the submitted report is somewhat brief, it still contains some good information and helps establish a history and base for sightings in the area.

Date of Sighting: ? late summer of 1977

Describe sighting in detail:
I was coasting down hill on hwy.41 N., when I noticed the car coming up hill hit his brakes.
I thought deer, but to my surprise this huge dirty brown hairy critter was standing over center
I applied my brakes, he then turned his whole body to face my car. He stepped 2 times
and was out of site.
The creature was 8-9 ft tall.
If I'm correct and I think I am, Hwy 41 runs through Paso Robles up to Fresno. This sighting area would appear to have very little wooded area now but could have possible had more back in '77. There is also the possibility that the creature could have been moving into or looking for a better living area or maybe just heading to a water source. Its hard to say for sure.
Here is a 3D map of an area along Hwy 41 called White Canyon.
A thanks to Rudy for sending in his sighting to us. If anyone else has had a sighting in this area, then feel free to contact us.
