Searching for Sasquatch in Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park

Funny Canadian sign
They wouldn’t put up signs if he wasn’t real!

Perhaps you remember the commercials from the 1990’s, of a Sasquatch wondering around the Canadian forests with a case of Kokanee beer in his hand? Or maybe you don’t remember them, or believe me that you should always be on the lookout for the Sasquatch while in Canada. Check out that sign. The Canadians aren’t just going to put up this sign for no reason 😉 He’s gotta be out there!

My dad and I hiked near the Kokanee Glacier a couple of times over the past few years. He went for the stunning beauty of the area and I went for the possibility of finding the Sasquatch. That and I wanted to capture a funny photo of me standing on the Kokanee Glacier, drinking a Kokanee beer. Funny right? But alas I couldn’t do it. I was and probably never will be physically fit enough to hike up to the actual glacier. It’s 1800 meters to the top (5905 feet) which is a lot for this chubby kid to hike up to!

I was able to admire the park from a lower elevation, where I took lots of photos from where I could hike to, which I will share here:

'huh, the side eye didn't scare the lady off'

‘OK lady, here I am for my close up’

I never found the Sasquatch while in Glacier Provincial Park and until I do, this photo will have to suffice:

Or this one… the Sasquatch seems to have a familiar face!

This doesn’t seem right… there’s no beer in his hand!

I found your post on the Sunday Traveler link-up. Beautiful photos! Despite Sasquatch roaming about, it looks serene and peaceful to me. -Heather, Life of a Traveling Navy Wife

The marmot is so cute! 🙂 Wouldn’t have been that happy about bumping into the sasquatch though! 😀

That’s a great sign. Yes, the Sasquatch must be real if they put up a warning sign. Do they have Sasquatch boxes, like bear boxes, where you can stash your beer while you hike so the Sasquatch don’t steal them? I think if you drank a case of beer, you’d be able to convince yourself you could get to the top of that glacier.
