Show Low is a small town in the eastern central part of Arizona. It’s in Navajo County at an elevation of 6,400 feet. The area has extensive forest and is a popular recreation spot. Show Low is close to the White Mountain Apache tribe. Natives in the region have long told stories of Sasquatch living in the area’s forest.
The report below is from a witness who encountered what he believes was a Bigfoot in Show Low, Arizona in September of 2012. He and a friend were staying in Show Low and had started taking daily walks in the surrounding forest.
“My friend and I were taking a walk. It was about five o’clock in the afternoon. We heard an odd sound, sort of a low grumbling noise. It was very deep, not like a dog but like something from a larger animal. We both stopped and started looking around to see what had made the noise. My friend spotted it first and pointed to me saying look! Over by some pine trees there was a tall creature, I’d say it was around seven feet or a little more. I couldn’t really see facial features very well because it all happened so fast. The creature was brown in color and dirty looking. The hair was long all over the body. The shoulders were very broad and it didn’t really look like it had a neck at all, just bulky shoulders going straight into its head. It was on two legs and I knew right away it wasn’t a bear or any other kind of animal that I had ever seen. It looked at us and my first thought was that it was angry. It made that grunting, growling sound again, then turned its back on us and walked away into the trees. We got out of there right away as we were both afraid that the thing might change its mind and come back towards us. The whole incident was probably less than a minute. We didn’t go walking in that area anymore after seeing it, I know that it was a Bigfoot.”
Show Low is also near the Mogollon Rim, an escarpment that defines the southwestern edge of the Colorado Plateau. The Mogollon Rim is known for its high limestone and sandstone cliffs. Extensive pine forests cover both the slopes of the rim as well as the plateau. The area has abundant wildlife and there have been numerous Bigfoot sightings over the years.
