    1. Hello – not so long ago, I took a trip to Socorro, but, along the way I stopped to see Fort Craig.
      I had a camera and a digital recorder with me. While I was walking around the fort grounds, about 2:00 pm , I started along a trail that winds around the area. Nothing special happened, but, once I was far enough back on the trail, I distinctly heard loud foot steps behind me. I could have sworn someone was walking behind me. I turned around and….nothing. As a walked, the foot steps started again. I quickly walked back to the ruins area and used my camera. I captured some shadow people and one EVP that sounded like a gun firing. Weird huh?

    2. I went to Fort Craig because I of this page. I am a photographer, and I thought that I might get some interesting pictures. I have trouble walking because of an operation to my right knee. I walked up the trail and took a few pictures. Nothing happened while I was there (or at least I didn’t think so).
      When I got home I threw my hat down and didn’t look at it. The next day I noticed something was wrong with my hat. Here is a picture of my hat. There was nothing wrong with this hat before I went.
