It's been almost three years since an iconic Bigfoot sighting in Iowa got some coverage online. The picture was posted, and got picked up by many cryptid fans, and news sources alike.

It's great to see Bigfoot go viral in Iowa. Even if many of us know, or at least believe it isn't real.

The White Water Canyon Sighting

This one happened a few years ago, but sightings are still happening today. A man named Jeremy saw a figure while on a walk and fortunately managed to get a picture. This happened in Bernard, Iowa at White Water Canyon.

What's cool about this story is that this story is that the man who shared it has done nothing else with Big Foot, Aliens, etc. Most of the time these guys who "see" something strange happen to see and take pictures of A LOT of strange things...

I'm not saying they are lying... I'm just saying it's interesting that it has happened many times. What is also cool about this sighting is that other reports of strange sounds and quick glimpses have been reported. Sadly no other photos have been shown yet.

About The Man Who Saw It.

Jeremy claims that whatever it was, it was really there.

"I was doing a morning walk at White Water Canyon with my sister, who lives up in Dubuque. I pointed out the figure and my sister laughed saying it was a person. We called out to it but got no response."

Do you think it's really, or is the fact that Jermy never stepped forward to get more fame in the community a sign that it really was just some guy who snagged a picture of Bigfoot?

The reason many believe Bigfoot could still be in that area is due to there being a rise in sightings over the last three years. Is it people just thinking they saw something due to the stories, or is the big guy still there?

Personally, I don't believe in a big hairy guy in the woods, but would love to be proven wrong!
