After many years of toying with the idea, and never putting a plan into action, I finally threw out the idea of a Halloween night run. At first, the interest was very minimal and so my efforts into making this happen were also very minimal. But at the last minute, the event EXPLODED with interest. I was getting emails constantly, and everyone wanted to invite friends. Before I know it, my evite was showing 23 people attending this night run that we later dubbed the "Creepy Crawl".
The meeting location was at Bullwackers Gas near Black Hawk. 14 rigs showed up to come tour a few cemeteries with me. We left around 6:30 and took the Nevadaville Loop to our first destination, Bald Mountain Cemetery.
Quick legend on Bald Mtn... Somewhere in the cemetery are the buried remains of a woman determined to be recognized as a true witch by her peers. At a certain point in the cemetery, whether it be winter or summer, you are to notice a very weak stench of rotting flesh. This is the point where you are assured to be in the right area. If you stand within a few yards of this malodorous grave, a green mist is rumored to appear. If your lighting is suitable you should be able to see the deceased woman stand upright and disperse thousands of maggots, covering the ground.
We did not find any witches, or ghosts, but did find plenty of cool, old graves.
