Hoof Prints of Bath, NC
Many believe Jesse was taken to hell for his wild ways by the stranger on the dark horse. The hoof prints made by Jesse’s frightened horse remain imprinted in the ground to this day, over two hundred years later.
Bunyip or Water Horse
Being a water naiad myself, I find water cryptids to be especially fascinating. One water creature that has some especially interesting theories to back up its existence, is called the Bunyip.
The Eccentric Dr. Joseph McDowell
While working at the Mark Twain Cave in Hannibal, Missouri, years ago, I found the story of Dr. Joseph McDowell of St. Louis to be quite fascinating. His daughter died as a young girl, and he had her body pickled and stored in a cask in the cave.
Haunted Banff Springs Hotel
Unfortunately, beauty does not guarantee prevention against ghosts and spirits appearing, and more often tends to be a magnet of the paranormal.
Some believe seeing one’s own, or a family member’s, doppelganger, is a portent of illness, bad luck, or even death.
The Bleeding Yew Tree
In the churchyard, ancient yew trees line the path leading up to the church. One of the trees is extremely old and twisted with a dark red liquid flowing from a gash in the trunk. The liquid is the color and consistency of blood. I read one report that indicated the substance cannot be identified.
The Lady of Red Mountain
Most of us know the story of Doc Holliday and his exploits after moving west in the hopes that the drier air would help his tuberculosis. But, unless you live in Manitou Springs, Colorado, you might not have heard of Emma Crawford.
Every spring, for about two weeks, sometimes a little longer, depending on the amount of sunshine and rain our Earth receives, a phenomenon called "mushroom hunting season" sweeps through the mid west.
Haunted Rose Hall, Montego Bay
One would think a sugar plantation on the gorgeous island of Jamaica would be one of the more delightful places to visit . . . perhaps not, if the spirit of the notoriously evil Annie Palmer is still in residence . . . and from all accounts, she appears to be!
Haunted Goldfield Hotel, Nevada
One of the most fascinating activities that I enjoyed while living in the desert years ago was ghost town hunting. Wonderful treasures could be found. Sometimes even real ghosts could be seen in the towns that were often in the middle of nowhere and seemingly devoid of any type of souls.
