Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
I was camping with a friend near Trinity Lake.
Describe what you heard / found / saw
It was between 9-10 pm when we heard rustlings in the woods near our campsite. We looked and bothnsaw an outline of a figure about 6 and a half feet tall. We could see the creature's eyes looking at us. Itnmay have been a little shorter (we were sitting down at a picnic table). The creature was clearly outlined,nstanding upright about 25-30 yards from us. After watching for about a minute we got scared andnstarted yelling and throwing rocks to scare it away. We were so scared that we left our campsite andnwent to stay in a motel that night. Later we began wondering if maybe it was a bear, but when we camenback the next morning everything was as we had left it at the campsite, including our food, which wenfigured a bear would have eaten.
Describe the time of year and the environment
It was the early fall in a thickly wooded campground in northern California. There were not too manynpeople around that weekend.
