Are There Bigfoot Like Creatures in the Adirondack Mountains?
When you hear about Bigfoot or Sasquach, the talk is usually about the Pacific Northwest. But are there unidentified creatures like Bigfoot in Upstate New York?
There are legends of Bigfoot-like creatures in both the Catskill and Adirondack Parks.
Whitehall, New York, a small town on the eastern edge of New York's Adirondack Mountain Preserve, has long been considered a Bigfoot 'hotbed' of activity in Eastern North America. Numerous Sasquatch sightings have taken place in and around Whitehall and in the Adirondacks - dating back to First Nation Iroquois legends and folklore of the woodland 'Stone Giants' as well as documented sightings during the exploration of the St. Lawrence seaway and Great Lakes areas of the U.S. and Canada by French explorer, Samuel de Champlain, in the early 1600's.
