Townspeople of Union, Washington, believe that a population of large hairy bipeds survives mostly unseen in the Olympic Mountains. They share grainy photographs and are eager for additional confirmation. They realize that the First Nations of the region have stories and beliefs about Sasquatch going back centuries. They point out that a few people claiming to have faked an appearance doesn’t invalidate the whole thing. They don’t call this a religion but it’s certainly a shared obsession, with the attention of hunters, hikers, and café and shop owners whose businesses benefit from the curiosity of outsiders.
