    There is supposed to be a haunted house out in bfe, south of Topeka, KS. Someone in the house killed all the members of the family, then himself. There's supposed to be a pentagram in the middle of the foyer and if you go out there at night and you stand in the pentagram, you're eyes will turn blood red and you will die soon. Of course it's all heresay...friend of a friend and all that. That's about all I know of it.

    here is a link that has some of Colorado's legends: http://www.celtictale.com/colorado/legends.htm

    We also have the infamous Stanley Hotel ("The Shining" was filmed there), located in Estes Park. Hubby stayed there when he was doing construction one time, and he says the legends are true. He saw some weird stuff, like furniture being rearranged in the dining hall after the staff had gone home (not just tables moved around and such, but chairs and tables stacked on top of each other), doors opening and closing of their own accord, footsteps, piano playing when no one is near it, stuff like that.

    I'm looking for a good website about the ghost stories.
    couldn't find a good website, but its haounted as you can imagine by death rowers, people say they see orbs, and black shadows. They hear whispers and footsteps, and what sounds like someone following you. I believe that on the episode of taps, they saw something run up to and away fro the camera, and couldn't exlpain it. they said they would further investigate the site.

    I live in Atlanta, and this seems like quite a boring place when it comes to ghosts and other supernatural happenings...unless I'm just not reading the right books or something.

    The energies around that place are INSANE!! Hubby and I talked about having our wedding there, but after our walk through it was too intense for his liking. (Although it is beautiful!)

    I know that when Stephen King stayed there (prior to writing the Shining) he saw/felt/experienced a few of the things he wrote about in the book. Or at least that's how the legend goes...

    The Stanley was the very first place where supposed orbs actually showed up in my photos! I took them on my digital, and some came out perfectly clear, and others had "orbs". The orbs mainly showed up in the hallways. However, I had no physical experiences.
