Deroche: Idyllic farm community nestled on a beautiful waterway

Some say Big Foot has been here, but we have our doubts

Deroche is a beautiful little community about 20 kilometres east of Mission, B.C., on the incredibly scenic Highway 7.

Located at the foot of Nicomen Mountain, this photo shows Nicomen Slough, which is across from Nicomen Island on the Fraser River.

Surrounded by farmland and dominated by mountains, Sasquatch are said to have visited the area over the years.

What are your chances of seeing a Sasquatch? We’d venture to say it’s fairly unlikely, because the big, hairy, ape-like creatures, if they exist at all, are said to be extremely shy.
