Granite Peaks Viewpoint

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

The rock pile here was the site of the 1967 witnessing of a small family of Bigfoot by Glen Thomas. According to Thomas, the creatures were vigorously turning over rocks and grabbing and eating small rodents that they found. In so doing, they apparently sculpted the deepest ‘’vision quest’’ pit you might ever see. Now, the site has become something of a mecca for Bigfoot searchers and is capped by an assortment of strange cairns.

Views from here extend to the Granite Peaks on the northern end of Rhododendron Ridge to Peak 5017 on the same ridge. Mount Jefferson looms to the left of Peak 5017.
