I told my family I saw sasquatch and they told me they saw him too!

in 1980, our family lived in Morley Alberta Canada close to the bridge and the school. We played all through out that area on motorbikes, making forts in the woods and exploring near the banks of the Elbow river. My older brother was 14 years old and my sister was about 18 years old. I was only 10 years old.

I remember watching a tall, big figure traverse the foothill behind what is now the community school. What struck me at first it was very large and moved very fast, though it was not running. The figure was dark against the pale straw colored hill. I knew immediately it was not a human. It was upright and moved on two feet. I also remember it had a funny shaped head. In my 10 year old mind it was as if he had balanced a cap on the crown of his head instead of pulling it onto his head. It was moving away from us.

I don’t remember my siblings being with me, so I was so happy that they both said they remember the same thing as I do and verified and the experience. They were able to relate more details as their experience a little better because they were older.
My sister relates that he was greyish, had hair all over its body, had the oblong head, had no clothes on and was bipedal and moving quickly. My brother remembers that it was very large, estimating over 8 feet and again, the oblong head.
We all remember that her was traveling through the same location and in the same directing (behind the Community school towards

I don’t remember what day it was or when it happened. It must have been either just approaching Winter or coming into Spring. The trees were bare, the bush on the hill he was moving on was scarce. There was no snow- if there was, it was small insignificant patches. We saw him clearly in the daylight. He was not trying to conceal himself in the trees that ran along the river. He did not stop. None of us remember feeling afraid and ALL of us knew what it was.
We didn’t ever talk about it, but not because we were ashamed or scared – it was as if we had simply seen a moose or something.
