What locations associated with mystery have you visited?

I went to Loch Ness during a trip I took to the UK with relatives in 1987 and have hiked into the Superstition Mountains - home of the Lost Dutchman's legend which are about 100 miles north of here.

The Kaiserthermen and the Roman Amphitheater in Trier, Germany.  They are supposed to be haunted.  My dog accompanied me into the underground portions, and became very agitated for no apparent reason on a few occasions.  The security guard spoke english, so we were able to ask him about the baths recent history, and he told us a few ghost stories.

Also, Metz in Southeastern France.  It was purported to be the home of a dragon like creature called the Graully.  It was exorsized by a saint, and never returned, but I can not remember the whole story off hand.

I lived in Baumholder Germany for a few years.  There were several other castles around the small town that I lived in that were said to be haunted, as well as the military barracks from WWII, which had served as Hitlers intelligence base.  The officers Club on base,"The Rheinlander", was a hotspot for sightings and strange happenings.

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that 's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

Iran;
Turquoise geode, itís boat ride, you lay down in a boat and you travel thru the cave.  It was so beautiful.

Temple of Anahita; Anahita is the goddess of heavenly water (Rain). Her is one the last Zoroastrian temple still standing in Southern Iran, all other  temple were demolished because they contradict Islam. ), her statute is no longer there, I think itís in London, and her alter has been defaced, However the grounds keeper, a Zoroastrian, showed us what no had seen in almost 4 years, he cut a pieces of grass and reveal the turquoise  inlayed floor of the garden.

Also one of the caves the Zoroastians lived in while the Islam was converting in Iran.  If you didn't convert, they would behead you.  My dad says about 3% of the Zoroastrian pop lived in caves for over 30 yrs, no one even knew that they were still  any zoroastrians left in Iran, most fled to India

Japan, a very old Shinto temple, i donít where.

The places in Iran you visited sound amazing. Must have been a while ago right because now they have a government guide on every tour, sounds cool neway.

Loch Ness is a great place to go especially in the winter when its really misty thumbsup.gif

Lets see.... Circle Hotsprings

Many people claim to see the ghost of a woman, witness things flying off the walls, footsteps can be heard, and more. The ghost likes to roam on the third floor, where the library is.

And yes I've seen her.  I was in the library reading some book on the titanic when I looked up because I heard footsteps and she was there... You could almost see through her too.

To add to the freakiness of the place the pool (Open air pool) was covered with ice fog so thick.... Though totally relaxing even though it was 60 below zero outside.  (Yep I went for the pool)  

hm... let's see....

Savage Rock in Denali National park.  I don't know if it's on any site as a mysterious place, but it's a strange rock formation.  You look at it from the base of the hill it's on and it looks like a native American lying down on the hill.  In the fall there's a bush near it that is about where an ear would be that's a bright yellow.  Looks like the feathers of a headdress.

Winchester mystery house The lady that built that was a nutcase... Though... it was a fun tour.

Several battle sites from the Civil war.  One of them I was at in early morning while there was still fog and I felt like I was being watched.  My friend and I quickly finished our jog that morning.  I think she felt it too.

Bristol Caverns which took us deep underground and I found out that I don't like being under ground any more than I like being above it.... Caves and Airplanes both scare me.  Though inside the caves were some beautiful sites....

The Mascarade in Atlanta.  My hubby is a Dimmu Bogir (Not sure if I spelled that right) Fan and we went to their concert in Atlanta.  I did get freaked out there... I didn't use the restrooms there though... with how I was feeling I was sort of afraid to.  Though I'm going back in april for an Iced Earth Concert.  (Hoping they play stuff from the new album.)Some intresting atlanta area haunts.

Here stands an Elfin warrior... Confuse her for a Keebler sprite and you'll be lucky to leave with limbs in place. - me acting silly in one of my various DnD rpg's
