True Ghost Story: The Yosemite Doppelganger

True Ghost Story: The Yosemite Doppelganger

“We visited Yosemite Park September 7-9, 2018. We spent two nights in a cottage near #7285. When we went there, the cottage seemed spectacular: classical-looking on the outside, but modern-looking on the inside, with complete facilities and supplies. We truly enjoyed our first night there.

Then came September 8 when we returned to our lodge after spending the whole day in Yosemite Valley. All eight of us were in the kitchen, busily preparing for dinner, when I felt the urge to use the restroom downstairs. As I reached the top of the stairs coming back, I saw my uncle on my left, four feet away from me, walking towards the stairs I had just climbed. In my hurry to go back to the kitchen, I could only see him in my left peripheral vision. He was walking towards me as if he needed to go to the bathroom as well. I did not talk to him and just went straight to the kitchen, but something kept bugging me. He didn’t normally use the restroom near the bunkbed where my mom, brother, and I slept, so why was he going there now?

The question lingered in me as I returned to the kitchen. To my surprise, my uncle was there, grilling corn. I could not help but to look at him with wide eyes, because if everyone was in the kitchen cooking, then who was the ‘person’ I had just encountered on the stairs?

When I told my relatives what had happened, terror also appeared in their faces. But since my little cousins were with us, they just acted as if my story was a joke and made up excuses about who or what I saw. I listened to them, but deep within me I knew what I had seen. It had looked exactly like my uncle.

Thankfully, the night went swimmingly well, and I was able to sleep. When morning came, I saw that my brother was not in his bunk bed. Instead, I found him sleeping in the living room.

At breakfast, he told everyone that he was not able to sleep soundly because he’d heard footsteps in the kitchen and the living room. There was my confirmation. We’d both encountered the same ‘creature,’ slowly creeping around our cottage.”

From Imgur:

“My friend had his stealth cam set up on a deer trail on his property in NC. This girl popped up on one of the frames. Also, there is what appears to be a man standing in the top right.”

Ghosts of the Labor Day Hurricane

Ghosts of the Labor Day Hurricane

On September 2, 1935, the Labor Day Hurricane slammed into the Florida Keys, obliterating everything in its path and sweeping scores of men, women, and children out to sea. At least 423 people died in the Category 5 storm, though no one knows just how many perished. Even today, lost victims’ skeletal remains occasionally surface, along with whispered tales of ghosts.

In 1935, the only way in and out the Keys was by boat or by rail. As the storm drew near, escape by boat was impossible, and nearly 1,000 people found themselves trapped. A rescue train braved the pounding wind and rain, but was overcome when it stopped to help the stranded. The train cars quickly flooded, and many of the people who thought themselves saved were drowned or swept away. For years after the disaster, reports of a phantom train plagued the area.

“The Key West Extension of the Florida East Coast Railway was never rebuilt after the storm, but in the early 1940s, weird events began to be experienced along the old line,” reports American Hauntings Ink. “The sound of a steam engine and a train whistle could sometimes be heard later at night and occasionally, a headlight could be seen silently rolling by in the early hours of the morning.”

The phantom train isn’t the only hurricane-related haunting. Legend has it the victims’ tortured spirits roam the swamps at night, searching for help that never comes. The hunched figures reportedly stagger in the same direction before fading back into the darkness, only to repeat their fruitless march another night. 

Do you think victims of the Labor Day Hurricane haunt Key West to this day? Or are the stories nothing more than remnants from the tragic past?

Ghost Photo: Skull Orb

My cousin recently captured this skull-shaped orb while taking photos of a canoe she’d painted. Is it paranormal, or is there a more logical explanation?

Ghost Photo: Locked Out

The image above comes from Reddit’s r/paranormal. The OP writes:

“My phone has an app that takes a picture when someone tries to access it and enter a wrong password. One morning, the application popped up showing a snapshot with the message ‘this person tried to unlock your gallery.’ I was really shocked when I saw the creepy ghost-like image captured on my phone.”

What do you think? Did a ghost try to unlock the OP’s phone, or is there a more logical explanation?

The Screaming Girl of Treem Elementary

The Screaming Girl of Treem Elementary

ghost scream

Students don’t like going to a particular bathroom at Treem Elementary School in Henderson, NV. It’s not just seeing the white-faced girl, although that’s bad enough. It’s the screaming.

The Facebook page for Harriet A. Treem Elementary is filled with pictures of happy teachers and enthusiastic kids sitting criss-cross-applesauce in brightly colored classrooms. Located between the Whitney Mesa nature preserve and the Las Vegas wash, Treem Elementary is a cheery, inviting place where teachers work hard to help kids learn.

Nevertheless, some students don’t like going to one of the bathrooms there. It has a creepy feeling. It gets to them.

Songs and Shadows

The bathroom is cold. Even in the Las Vegas area where the August temperature sails past 105 degrees every day and it never rains, the bathroom seems cold beyond the power of air conditioning. The students noticed that their voices echoed, and the windows seemed to have reflections in them, reflections that disappeared just as you turned to look.

When Stefani heard singing in the girls’ bathroom, she didn’t think anything of it, at least not at first. She went into the bathroom and looked around. Toilets, the swinging doors of stalls, the silence of dry sinks — that was all.

As Stefani left, she saw a child’s shadow behind her, but when she whipped around, she saw no one. There were only shadows.

Help Me!

They say the little girl waits for the school to be empty. That’s when you see her. White-faced, framed by the window, the little girl seems to glow. Then she screams for help.

She wants you to help her.

Some area residents and students say the little girl died in the third or fourth bathroom stall. She needed help, and now she screams for it from the window or from the hallways. It’s rumored that the janitors see the girl’s ghost all the time, and that some of them have finally given up. They still hear her scream, but when they do, they shake their head and put in earphones. They know it’s too late to help her now.

Ghosts of the Pioneer Past

Most of the time, the little girl is wearing pioneer attire. Treem Elementary was built long after the Paiutes first settled in the valley and the Mormons built a mission there in the late 1800s. Still, as one of Vegas’ haunted places, Treem Elementary’s location near the wetlands is intriguing, The wetlands were the area’s lifeblood in the days when Vegas was one of the territory’s few watering holes on the way to California.

Did the girl die near the water? Did she die in the school bathroom? Could her ghost have been haunting that corner of Las Vegas long ago, a casualty of a pioneer disaster? No one knows, and the little girl who haunts Treem Elementary cannot say.

She can only scream.
