Has there been any talk about offering an expedition into the general area where the Berry-Morehead Sierra Sounds audio was captured? It sounds like quite a haul to get into the area, which I believe they have kept secret, but it might be worth taking a horse pack string into the area.

Since I've received no answer to my question, is it correct to assume that the upcoming Sierra expedition in November will be somewhere close to this area?

dougfoot - the Sierra Mountains cover a VAST amount of land. The exped location is not announced to anyone except those officially signed up. As you said in the original post, the location of the Sierra Sounds has been kept secret (as far as I know) and there is no information that would link the November exped and Moreheads location.

I think no one answered you because nobody had an answer.

I don't think there's been an 'official' exped by the BFRO but I know a number of researchers who have gone there. That's certainly on my list - just to be in the area! You have to remember lots has changed in 40 years...water moves, flooding, logging, etc., but it's still remote.

dougfoot --- the November Sierra expedition was in EL Dorado county and the Berry-Morehead Sierra camp was in Tuolumne county (about 3 counties to the south). If interested PM me,after much work and good intel I pretty much can put you with in a mile of the Berry-Morehead Sierra Camp.

pictures are taken for 2 completly different ridge lines. It's almost the identical angle but my pictures are taken on a ridge much closer to the rock formation. If you look in the original picture you can actually see the ridge top that my picture is taken from.

If you recall the Sierra Camp takes 8 hours on horse back to reach. my picture was taken out my drivers window on a fairly well maintained gravel road.

Yes the first 2 nights were very active then it tailed off to nothing over the next couple nights. My poor wife was scared to death, she thought I was crazy with all my BF reading and stuff and she's the one that woke me up the first night about 2 am saying "there's something REALY big walking down the bank". We sat up the rest of the night listening to the flurry of things going on around our tent.

That movie still haunts my sister and I, granted I was 8 and she was 6 the first time we saw it. Had to move our beds away from the window and shared a bed for about 2 weeks!!!

That bathroom scene traumatized my sister and I as well.

smithcd. I just got it from Netflixs. I saw it when it first came out back in the 70s and after reading so many people refer to it on the board, I had to watch it again. At least this time I don't think I will have nightmares for weeks.

The place where the Sierra Sounds is in a place where No motorized vehicles are allowed to be. No bikes of any kind either. Only horses and foot travel. I have actually camped there and had some weird things at night happen.

I have done alot of research on the location of the sierra sounds and I know where the base camp was. The location was very remote in 1967 but now there is A LOT more human activity in that area, including military bases. I beleive that if a BF was there it probably "migrated" to a more secure location away from humans.

If I lived in this area I would spend a lot of time looking for the actual base camp. I would love to just sit there and listen to the Bigfoot Sounds CDs. I bet you could still the shelter and the wood stove.. That would have to be on My Bigfoot Bucket list. I would love to go to Bluff Creek, Sierra Sounds Base Camp, Ape Canyon, Ruby Creek, Conuma River area on Vancouver Island, Toba Inlet are in B.C., and I would love to go to the Redwood National Forest... Did I miss any?
