Google Earth Image Sparks Controversy: Is it Really Bigfoot in Colorado’s Uncompahgre National Forest?

“Short answer: No, it is not a Bigfoot.  If you see it being shared as a Bigfoot Photo, just ignore it.”


An image on Google Earth has been circulating online, which appears to show a figure resembling Bigfoot in a Colorado forest. The image was first discovered a few years ago, but recently gained attention when it was shared on a Reddit forum dedicated to the cryptid. The image is of a remote part of the Uncompahgre National Forest in Colorado and shows a dark bipedal figure walking through an open area of land.


Many believed that the figure could be Sasquatch captured by Google’s satellite, however, upon further examination it was determined by user u/Northwest_Radio that the figure was likely a small natural body of water.

The image may continue to be shared online as it is rediscovered by Bigfoot enthusiasts.
