It's Bigfoot! Not the REAL Bigfoot but a large statue of the creature that arrived at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park earlier this year.

The statue is placed in hidden locations within the state park’s boundaries.

If you come across him, be sure to take a selfie. Post the selfie to your social media accounts with the hashtags #CoralPinkSandDunes and #SandSquatch.
If you show the post to park staff at the visitor’s center, you’ll get a discount on an awesome T-shirt.

Just like Bigfoot, the statue will roam periodically so it's never in the same place twice. Park Ranger Patrick Buhr said that the statue adds another fun aspect to an already action-packed park.

Buhr said in a prepared statement:

Coral Pink is unique because we have a little bit to offer everybody. We have amazing campsites, miles of off-highway vehicle riding on the dunes, dark skies, hiking, and even sandboarding. Now, people can add another awesome activity to their list when they come to visit.

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is just outside the city of Kanab in Kane County. The park itself features guided ATV tours, multiple campgrounds, and access to some of the best dune-riding in Utah.
