Since I last posted, I've gotten information on the area south of Rainier. Turns out that "the foothills" of an enormous stratovolcano covers an awfully large area. I know it's not Cougar Rock, the campground is too large, too far from the river and at least from the look of it on Google Maps doesn't have the right layout. There are a lot of rivers, and it could be any one of them. I did talk to a few people from the area, though, and a lot of people claim to have been camping in the area and seen these cryptids. There are adults now, and one of the people I talked to mentioned having "relations" with one of them, a beautiful redhead of ~20 with a slight tan. He also mentioned that she had a little sister, who was a blonde of ~14 and who made a lot of advances on him that he refused. That sounds a lot like the girls I met when I was there.
The others I talked to were his wife, who says she believes him *only* because he has nothing to gain by lying to her and a lot to lose. They had two kids, and those kids confirmed their dad's sighting. They were there when he started talking to her, but he sent them away because she was naked and he didn't want them looking at her. However, they didn't know she was half snake until he told them. She hadn't left the water yet. The younger child (a girl of ~8 years) did say she talked to one later on, a girl with black hair and scales about her age. Her story about their encounter was disturbing and squicky, (to me, at least) so I will not recount it. I believe her, of course, because mine was similar and a lot of it was stuff I wouldn't expect her to know about yet. Also, her brother shut her up quickly when she started talking. I asked him if he had a similar story, and he said yes. After that, he refused to say another word on the matter. He went to inform his parents, they came back and apologized to me for having to hear the story and asked that I please not tell anyone. (Hey, I'm not giving names. Close enough.)
I didn't get any further information, but I do remember the cryptid girl I spent time with talking about the others in her area, and she talked about a boy with black scales a lot. It's possible the black-scaled baby is their child. Further, while I was talking to them they said they shared this info and got responses about it with others who had been there. Some people laughed at them, others just dismissed them and ended the conversations, some zealously embraced their stories, but some others shared similar stories. Apparently, most of the sightings are southwest of Rainier, along the rivers there. The sightings are still uncommon and the internet is still drawing a blank, but there are people here who know about this and it's only a matter of time before somebody looks into it, or at the very least it hits the internet. (From more people than just me, that is.)
That's all the new info I've got.
