Details regarding the creature’s appearance:
Additional information about the creature: I am from Dallas, TX. and was visiting my newlywed friends in Lacy, WA. (about 50 minutes south of Seattle). Part of the trip was for us to visit and hike up Mt. Rainier (at least as far as we could with all the snow and bad weather they were getting up in the Northwest. We parked the truck at the lodge and continued on foot on the Wonderland Trail. We hiked for a at least a couple of miles and there were no people around at all. Mind you, this was not the best of days to go hiking or climbing on Rainier; they were getting record accumulations of precipitation.
Consequently, we appeared to be alone on the trail. While my friends were hiking in front of me I let out a very loud and deep hoot. I’ve read in other reports that bigfoot makes this noise, calling to others of it’s kind (I have always been interested in unusual phenomena, and done lots of research on the subject of Sasquatch). This made my friends laugh. I hooted a few times and then gave up, just fooling around, when Ken (my good friend, who is a U.S. Army Special Forces green beret at Fort Lewis, WA.) and I heard a very similar, but much more powerful hooting calling back from up the mountain. Distances of the calls was not able to be determined, but I think they must have been at least 300 yards away. Ken an I just stopped in our tracks and looked at each other. Lisa, his wife, was about 30 feet up ahead of us, but didn’t hear it because she had a head -band around her ears. We called to her and she stopped too. I called out again with another set of hoots, as loud as I could. A few seconds later, all three of us heard the reply again, except that the calls sounded like they were getting closer to us, and there might have been more than one ??? making the calls. I continued again, and this really began to upset Lisa and Ken to an extent. They wanted me to shut the hell up. The replys came again!
I have been hiking, camping, and exploring in the wilderness of many, many places in America (as did Ken), and we have yet to ever hear anything like this before. It was so loud and deep and powerful sounding. I know there are spotted owls in the vicinity, but this was nothing like that, or other animals that I know about. It was starting to get dark, we couldn’t see too far in front of us. Thinking ahead, we marked our trail every so often with chem-lights. After that last set of hoots that we heard, Ken ordered (and I mean ORDERED) us to turn tail and head back to our starting point. It was such an incredible feeling we had. We were all so weirded out, the hair was starting to stand on the back of my neck. Too bad I did not get to catch a glimpse of whatever it was making those calls. But I can tell you again, it was nothing we have ever heard before.
I was unable to collect any evidence
