Crevasse Bigfoot - Malaspina Glacier, Alaska -The White Bigfoot series

Frank E. Howard shared his story in the 1908 edition of Alaska Yukon Magazine.

He never referred to the figure as a bigfoot or sasquatch.

Howard fell into a deep crevasse. Although unhurt, he was unable to climb back out. He began following the crevasse downhill hoping to find a way out. The path led into a large cave.

"I arose and started down the slope with the idea of reaching the water and following along the margin while the tide was low, in search of some crevasse leading out into the open bay. I was sure the great cavern was crevassed to the surface at some point beyond . . . looking up, I saw there was no clear opening to the surface. But objects were now revealed some distance around."

And it was revealed that he was not alone in the cave.

". . . an object rose slowly out of the glimmer and took form -- a spectral thing, with giant form, and lifelike movement. The object rose erect, a Goliath in the shape of a man. Then, watching me with a slantwise glance, it walked obliquely from me, until its form faded in the gloom of the cavern."

Never calling it bigfoot or sasquatch, Howard proceeded to describe the being.

"With its shaggy light-colored fur and huge size, the creature in some way resembled a bear with bluish grey fur, but that it had roughly human form, and at all times walked erect."

Ed Ferrell in Strange Stories of Alaska and the Yukon tells us: "There is no further record of Frank Howard. Yet his account is consistent with other reports of Bigfoot or Sasquatch."

Malaspina Glacier

In his book "Raincoast Sasquatch", J. Robert Alley shares my train of thought: "It seems that the event may have happened in some form or another, as described . . . At any rate it is an intriguing tale, if not simply a good yarn, and Ferrell's summation, of the creature described as 'consistent with Sasquatch' seems quite appropriate."

True event? Tall tale? Hard to say. But certainly worth knowing about.
