Mike Johnson
Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies

Michael Johnson is the driving force behind Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies.
Michael came to Colorado in 1977 from north of Salina, Kansas. He instantly fell in love with the mountains and Colorado, and has spent countless days and nights exploring its majesty. He got started in this endeavor in the 1990’s after finding 17″ footprints in the snow at Rampart Range during Thanksgiving break.  In the same location, Mike had a Class 1 Bigfoot sighting when he saw a male Sasquatch in person.  This sighting was investigated by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO).  Mike is very comfortable in the woods.  He hunts elk and pheasant, and is well adapted to search for the legendary creature in the remotest areas of Colorado, in all four seasons. Mike is a Christian man, he is a husband, a father of three, and a proud grandfather.  He is very spiritual, whether it be his religion or his search for his Indian heritage. He is a man’s man, who loves life, the outdoors, his friends and his family. He is painfully honest, which has been his biggest challenge in this field, much to his surprise.  Mike is interested in both the scientific side and spiritual side of the Sasquatch Equation, which makes him a unique individual in the field today.

Robin Roberts & Roo​​
Sasquatch Investigations of the Rockies​

Robin Roberts is an investigator for Sasquatch Investigations
of the Rockies.  She has spoken at several Bigfoot meetings
and school-aged classrooms.  She has combined her love of
children with her passion of Bigfoot with leading school-aged
children on an annual "Looking for Bigfoot" field trips since
2013 in Colorado.  Her happy place is camping in the middle of
nowhere in active Bigfoot locations.

Roo is Robin Roberts' hiking companion.  She goes on many investigations and
camps in a couple of active Bigfoot locations.  What is special about Roo is she is a rescue from a shelter.  She was covered in bite marks and you could see every bone in her body.  She was deathly afraid of everything.  Especially men.  She has learned to be a respectful camper and loves camping as much as Robin.  One active Bigfoot location is actually named after her.  Called Roo's Place.  You can read about it at Robin's blog:
