Indiana’s Patoka Lake Welcomes a New Resident: A 25-Foot Tall Sasquatch!
The legend of Sasquatch has been a subject of debate for decades. Is there such a thing as Bigfoot? There is no shortage of witnesses who claim to have seen the mythical creature, but we still don't have the hard evidence to prove its existence. There have been some Sasquatch sightings in Indiana recently, and the photographic proof to go along with them.
Visitors to the French Lick Cabins at Patoka Lake are guaranteed to see Sasquatch - the big guy is there every day with his fishing pole, hoping to get a bite. The park is now home to a HUGE (25 feet tall) carving of Sasquatch, just sitting there with a BIG smile on his face, just enjoying Mother Nature.
The massive carving was created by the talented crew at Bear Hollow Wood Carvers, located there in French Lick, IN, and this particular Sasquatch was the brainchild of French Lick Cabins owner Jason Emmons. Here's the low down from the folks at Bear Hollow...
When Cindy and Jason Emmons purchased the French Lick Cabins at Patoka Lake Village a few years ago, they were picturing different ways to incorporate elements of Bear Hollow. Guests can find carvings from the Bear Hollow team all around the cabins and grounds, but they wanted something bigger that could be seen by everyone. That is when the idea of a huge Sasquatch hit them. Jason pitched the idea to the team and they were all for a collaboration project!
We Know the "Why" But What About the "How"
There's no way I could begin to explain the process of creating a structure this big, and even if I did, you wouldn't want to read it. For a build like this, I think a video will tell the story much better than any words. Check this out...
