  1. Late at night at or around midnight on certain nights you can hear what sounds like traditional drums echoing around the area

  2. This lake is cursed, there have been many deaths and not just your average person. Many have gone to thar lake and never left, including a scuba instructor and an mma fighter.

  3. When I was walking back to our boat from the bathrooms. I felt a presence and then heard foot steps crunching in the desert next to me. Then a breath next to my ear!! I was totally freaked out!
