I’m writing this from a very soggy Felton, California in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This is one area of possible activity I hadn’t yet visited so here I am! I have to say that upon arrival earlier in the week I was thinking to myself: no way could there be any bigfoots in this area. There are too many bloody people! Even in Felton! I went into Santa Cruz (just 7 miles away), driving through spectacular windy roads shrouded by redwoods. Santa Cruz was extremely congested and reminded me of many other coastal towns in southern California. This area is just outside Silicon Valley so I guess deep down I knew it would be crowded.
Anyway, I went to Big Basin Redwoods State Park about 17 miles from Felton. It was beautiful and tranquil–full of gigantic sequoias and redwoods. I hiked in solitude for about 10 miles, exploring different areas and venturing to a waterfall. I photographed the print above but it’s likely just a regular boot print. On my way back to my cabin, I stopped by The Bigfoot Discovery Museum run by Mike Rugg. I spent a couple of hours with him. What a treat. He is exceedingly knowledgeable and has quite the research going on here complete with a map of all locals sightings–he even shared some footage and audio of purported bigfoots with me. He also single handedly convinced me of the possibility of a bigfoot “pocket” here in Santa Cruz, stating they migrate from the south and are already habituated to humans. I’m intrigued enough to come back for more 🙂
On a final note, our short film EVE didn’t make the cut at Sundance 2015. There were over 12,000 entries with less than 2% chosen. Next, we will enter it into the Dallas International Film Festival. Work is underway on the screenplay, too!
Happy Holidays everyone! I’m delighted to say that our fan page on Facebook has surpassed 1000 LIKES! There will be drawings for signed books soon.
