The White Lady of Frio River is said to manifest as a wisp of foggy or the apparition of a woman wearing a white dress. She is believed to be Maria Juarez, who caught the eye of her sister’s husband, Gregorio. Maria was engaged to Anselmo Tobar, so she spurned Gregorio’s advances, and he shot her to death in anger. Gregorio went into hiding as Maria was buried in her wedding dress. Gregorio was found, tried, and sent to prison. It is said that Maria lies here in an unmarked grave, and her ghost wanders in the canyon as a kindly spirit all in white.
