Big Foot Museum and the Trinity River

Plaster castings of Big Foot's
White water rafting the Trinity River.

Willow Creek, home of the Big Foot museum, is only 300 feet in elevation, but with mountains all around it you feel much higher. The surrounding mountains and relatively low elevation can cause the temperature to be as much as 40 degrees hotter here in the summer than on the coast only 40 miles away.

This means if you get too hot here, head to the coast. If you are too cold on the coast, head to Willow Creek and don't forget to go whitewater rafting while there. What fun!
