The podcast recounts the tale of five miners who were besieged by bigfoot in 1924, trapped overnight in a cabin in Ape Canyon, south west of Mt St Helens. Not Alone expands the story to include an encounter with a Forest Ranger the miners had after the bigfoot encounter and some theories on what bigfoot is, based on local native accounts.
May 18th marked the 35th Anniversary of the massive eruption that killed 57 people and destroyed 230 square miles of forest. Ash was blown 80,000 feet into the air and mud, ash and debris combined with melted glaciers to cause powerful mud flows that destroyed everything in their path as they rushed down the side of the mountain.
Certainly any creatures in the path of the ash and mud flows on that Sunday morning in May were killed, but there is no reason to believe that Bigfoot does not still roam that area. Bigfoot sightings from 2002 suggest that Bigfoot is alive and well in the forests and hills of Mount Saint Helens.
