I think you have the Goatman's bridge story a little off. I've lived in Denton and now I go to school here and everytime I hear this story it goes like this. In the late 1800's Denton was quite small and Arglye (where goatmans bridge is) barely existed. There was a man that lived out that way who owned several goats and that was how he supported himself. Many of the merchants in Denton thought this old man to be very odd. This guy was a loner and no one knew much about him. Many of the older people in Denton knew this guy and remembered that his wife died mysteriously. A few of the men in Denton got drunk and started riding around the area. They found the old loner herding his goats late at night and drove the old man and his goats off the bridge. When the sheriff found out about this he investigated and could no longer find the old man or his goats.Weeks later after an event in the city a family was crossing the bridge in their wagon and could hear odd noises from underneath the bridge. After they crossed the bridge they looked back and saw the man staring at them, holding the heads of goats, one under each arm. Now the stories are that you can hear the sound of hooves on the bridge and splashes in the water and some people say they saw the man but his head was a goats head. I've been to this bridge many times and scared countless freshman but I've never seen the man. I do admit that the bridge is a unnerving at night and I have heard the splahes and heard weird sounds while standing on the bridge. I have also heard it's a place statanists hang out. It's definately a good place to take a girl if you want her to hang all over you.

Holy sh**! My dad just got done telling me the story about the goatman! hahaha! I thought he was just pulling my leg, I had no idea there actually WAS a goatman legend. He grew up in texas, he knows the WHOLE story. His versions didn't involve devil worshippers though. He told me about a news broadcast about it when he was younger. I'll get him to tell me the whole story again so I can post it. Better yet, I can call my grandma and ask her. She probably knows ALL about it.

my friends and i read about the goatman bridge the other night and decided to explore it for ourselves... oh man. we went at about 10 or 11 at night, so it was really dark, and really creepy. we just stayed and sat on the bridge for a while, and we did hear the splashing in the water, although we didnt think much of it (maybe frogs? or fish jumping?). the one realllllly creepy thing was we heard laughing. and it wasnt normal laughing, it was like evil, menacing laughing coming from multiple directions. we had a dog with us, and even the dog was freaked out. we left shortly after that.
i didnt grow up around here, but i was telling a friend that had our story later, and he told me that he knew of the bridge. definatley a place to go check out.

does anyone know of any other local haunted places?? i'd love to know and go check them out.

EDIT AGAIN: Here is the strange part. The pics with FOG came out blurry on both the 35mm and the digi cam. Pics without anything came out perfectly clear with both cameras.
Tempature reading (tempature is actually 46 everywhere else this evening)


Could the cameras use the same auto-focus method and in this trying to focus on a gery object not quite solid (in this case liquid) and not quite air as i would imagine an autofocus would try to wrestle with finding the correct range of millions of multi-ranged water particles there for not being able to focus correctly? Just a thought.

The railroad tracks thing is an optical illusion. The way the foilage grows and the landscape forms makes downhill seem uphill.

your photos seem kind of not very clear, and the colors are messed up. I have digital but it doesn't mess up like that ever. Nether does a normal polaroid picture I've taken then scanned.

I would be very careful about going out to the bridge again.  It isn't the Goatman that is going to get you...it has a reputation as a freaky party place and gang-banger party site.

is it cold at night at that place, doesnt have to be freezing to have visible breath, and you might not even see it because theres not enough light, but your flash will take care of that.

the fog pictures look like mist breath to me.
next time as you take a pic look over the top of the camera at the area the flash will light up straight away, it might help you see if anything is being lit up.

me and my friends went up there couple nights ago, we live in lewisville... we went up to the bridge... and what we hard was there is supposedly an old abbandonded church if you follow the trail off the bridge... where satanists and kkk members sacrifice sh** and what not...

wierd crap went on...

we got there and like... we went on the bridge and we heard drums, is the best way i can describe it, something hitting something else keeping a constant beat. my friend took pics, and when he did the drums stopped... then we heard the sound of like a saw cutting through something. my friends batteries died and he put new batteries in but they died almost instantly. my friend had gone there the night before and killed a copperhead with a crowbar. we went there and couldnt find it. also, we met a couple ppl and they took us to an abandoned house and its all kinda collapsed and crap but it was still pretty interesting. my friend and his cousin also were on the bridge the night before and they heard a loud thump and saw some kind of hairy thing crawling across one side of the bridge to the other... my friend got pics of it but it was on a cell fone and it was soo dark you can hardly see it... we are going back this weekend.

I for one, am glad that you didn't see some "Goatman".  
I know this is alot Urban Legend.  But, I also know that if someone ever did try to conjure up something dark, there, (and there are idiots that do it all of the time), it can't be good.
Good work, just be careful and use your wisdom, and protection.

So me and 3 other friends went up to the so called "goatmans bridge" tonight off of swisher. We had gone before 2 other times just to show our other friends how it is and nothing ever happened... until tonight.

We got there and there were about 5 other people and they were acting retarded and telling us crap about how it was and how they saw stuff. I for one didn't believe them cause they seemed like they were the type who would try to mess with us. We were taking random pics off the bridge, when we saw two of them coming back from the "trail". We didn't know about the trail so we decided to check it out. I made sure that the other people weren't over there... they were hanging out by the benches.

We then proceeded to go down the trail as I was still taking random pics. We kept walking along for a long while. Then all of a sudden we heard rustling to our left side. We all paused and stopped... I continued to take pictures but everytime I did we heard it again. We were scared but i told everyone to calm down. The first two pictures you will see are at the same time we heard the rustling in the woods. Keep in mind when you look that it's not smoke from cigarettes cause smoke cannot look like that and we had no flashlights or anything to shine. While i was taking pictures NO ONE was in front of me cause i led the pack. We heard the noise a couple more times. It actually sounded like someone was in the woods and were trying to mess with us. When we went closer into the woods off the trail to see what the sound was... there was a cliff. It's nearly impossible for anyone to be there, and run away when we heard rustling because to our left were just trees then a cliff. There was minimal terrain for anyone to hide without us being able to see whatever it or who it was.  After that we continued on a little bit and headed back. When we were at the benches the other group was still there.

I'm not going to post all the pictures... but a couple of pictures had ALOT of orbs while ALOT of other pictures had no orbs at all. So... dust in some pictures and no dust in other pictures? How does that make any sense? There is also a picture (the 3rd one) that shows a triangle with the points in bright red.                                  

Something definitely is going down over there and we will keep trying to document stuff. I apologize that we do not have any time stamps, but next time we go out there we will.
