I was returning from a vacation in British Columbia and because the weather was so nice we (I was with 2 friends) decided to stop at one the roadside rest stops; just into Jasper National Park from Mount Robson Provincial Park. I was walking along in the ditch area beside the rest stop when I noticed what looked like a very large human footprint in the rocky soil. At first I thought it odd, then I began to think of the stories of the Sasquatch that everyone talks about. I must admit, I have never really believed in that sort of thing but seeing this huge footprint made me think about it all again. I wandered about the area for another 5 or 6 minutes, finding nothing else. I told my friends about it and they said that it must be a joke; something someone placed there. I suppose that is a possibility, I cannot say for sure. But it looked so ‘real’. If I had to guess, I would say that the footprint was 40-45 centimeters in length. I could clearly see the impressions that the 5 toes had made.

I did have a camera with me, but it was packed away. At the time it did not seem like this footprint was important enough for me to rifle through my bags for the camera. I regret not doing that.
