One of the numerous “Weeping Woman” ghosts that haunt the southwest, La Llorona is the hispanic boogey-woman. She appears everywhere and the story is always the same: a woman drowns her child in a river/lake/ocean/pond/drainage ditch/bathtub and then spends all eternity weeping for her lost child and searching desperately for it.

  1. Not true! I remember being so scared of this when I was a little girl and now as a grown adult I live across from an Arroyo and there is nothing haunted about it

  2. I have actually had an experience seeing a woman walking through that arroyo she didn’t even seem like she was walking she was more like gliding through me and my homie was a few feet away from her but by the time we turned into the arroyo to walk down it she was no where in sight only the smell of lavender all the way down the arroyo

    • Yes, it is true. It doesn’t happen all the time and when it does, you can hear a howling scream and cry that echos and the dogs start barking, growling, and howling out of control going down the arroyo. I had the window open late at night and got to hear all that. Now, it’s like Nope.

  3. Even though this has not to do with the lady in white but me and my friends walked down to the arroyos we found foot prints thats not of a man or normal animal i will send you the photos if you want to see them and had heard strange noises and growls so i believe she is not the only one that dwells there.

  4. My understanding is that this is fairy tale for keeping kids out of the arroyos. Arroyos are known for lot of drownings in the past, especially during monsoon season where you could have a thunderstorm 20 miles upstream of it and it can have a flash flood within minutes. This sort of like parents telling their kids the boogy man will get them if they go out at night.
