  1. I’ve heard of a different legend here, where a farmer’s daughter had been raped and murdered by an employee of the farm. She’s said to scan passer’s by in search of the man (and blood-relatives) and seeks revenge for her abuse and untimely death. People have said to even see a woman’s eyes peering through the fog that envelopes traveler’s vehicles.

    Though I cannot confirm any such incident of her prying eyes, myself as well as a few beloved old friends have traveled this area a few times and have first-hand witnessed the area being swept with an unusual density of fog. In fact, we nearly had to come to a stop as the fog seemed to come out of nowhere between the hours of midnight to 3am.

    I do however feel as though this is more of a location to visit if your’e already in the area or within a reasonable distance, as we’ve made a few journeys there that resulted in rather anti-climactic happenings. Also, there is no landmark or defining detail which makes the destination irrelevant. It is a lot of fun if you are in the right head space for it. Remember, half of the time its the journey there that really makes a memorable trip.
