Unfortunately, the only full story I could find on this incident occurs in the same context as Big Foot. I'm not claiming that Big Foot is at the top of the food chain. I'm not thinking of Big Foot at all. But the mysterious disappearance of this professional skier on the slopes of Mt. St. Helen is just weirder than weird.
"Carter's complete disappearance is an unsolved mystery to this day," declared Bob Lee, well-known Portland mountaineer who is a member of the exclusive world wide Alpine Club, a leader of the 1961 Himalayan expedition, and adviser to the 1963 American expedition.
Lee said he had never seen one of the monsters, but that there certainly was evidence "that there was something strange on the high slopes of the mountain." He was convinced of this during the search for Carter, he said.
"Dr. Otto Trott, Lee Stark and I finally came to the conclusion that the mountain devils got him," said Lee seriously.
