|Hwy 33 in WV - Photo from Google Maps|
Pendleton county is the fifth lowest populous in West Virginia. The landscape is very much like what we find here in Southeast Kentucky. It is a truly beautiful area.
Spruce Knob, located in Pendleton County, is the highest point in the state and in the Alleghenies, its elevation being 4,863 feet. Parts of the Monongahela and George Washington National Forests are also located in Pendleton. It is and idea area for bigfoot.

Describe sighting in detail:
We were traveling on route 33 and observed a large object beside the road. I knew immediately it was Bigfoot. My wife asked what was beside the road. I replied "a bear" not wanting to get into the Bigfoot discussion with her again. (she was a nonbeliever at the time).
Her reply was "that was not a bear, that was Bigfoot!" I am working on getting permission to research this area from the landowner.
Follow up questions:
TM: Where did it go and describe the height and color?
W: We're not sure where it went. When we passed it was standing beside the road. We turned around and went back and it had left. It looked to be all black and judging by the tree it was near I would say it was 7 to 7.5 foot tall.
Thanks for the report, Wesley. We wish you good luck in obtaining permission to research the area. If you get in there and need some help, have questions or want to share what you find, then just email or message us.
Maybe we will have an update on this sighting and area in the future.
