There's an awful lot of fake videos of alleged bigfoot encounters and evidence on youtube. Why people do this, I don't know. It's like watching an unfunny comedy routine fall flat on it's face to canned laughter. Whenever these videos show a guy in a suit, he always has a funny walk and wide arm swings. This is supposed to be in imitation of the Patterson figure. But it never looks real. It doesn't look real because Patty doesn't really walk funny.
The way she picks up and sets down her feet can be explained by the simple fact that she is barefooted on sandy, rocky, uneven ground filled with all kinds of obstacles. The only time she swings her arms out is when she whirls around to face her pursuers. She turns, looks back toward Gimlin, steps in a slight depression(almost unnoticeable) because she took her eye off the ground in front of her. Then looks at Roger, and turns and continues walking. She never stopped moving even though Patterson later said in error that she had paused. Which goes to show you that even eyewitnesses can be wrong. When she got down in the woods she came upon uneven ground and her armswings compensated for the unevenness.
The bottom of her feet, of course are covered with the dirt and probably pretty thickly, since she had been squatting by the creek edge and her feet were no doubt wet. This mud might seem to distort her foot in the mind of one who didn't take this in consideration, giving them the notion that her heel had a different shape than normal people's.
Even looking at her profile, it is not apparent that she has an unhuman, apelike brow, just that it is obscured by hair. My conclusion is that this is a large, hairy naked woman, human, but not necessarily sapiens.

- I've lived in the woods and came to know and understand the creatures that inhabit it. I have compassion for all God's creatures, most especially the creature known whimsically as "bigfoot", since he is more like us than any other. I am now an old man and unable to run around in the woods. If I were able I would be out there right now trying to prove his existence. I started this blog to try to express some of the ideas and speculations I have had on bigfoot. I am not into bigfoot social events. I don't gossip about other bloggers. I try to keep myself informed of events. My ideas and opinions are my own and I make no apology for them. They are not written in stone and I welcome any and all civil comments. I am looking for the truth, not fame.
