Santa Fe & Albuquerque feel “safe” to me. Almost benevolent. Huge contrast to Hwy 285 out of Roswell or even 87 out of Raton. With the exception of the UFO history, I’m not familiar with any legend or lore of either region.

As melodramatic as it may sound, in both places mentioned above; I personally, as a night-owl, sense my own violation of some unwritten contract of those that may inhabit the night vs the day. It feels non-intimate, as in: “many” & it feels foreboding; as in: “you should go now, hurry”.

I-25 east of Santa Fe through Glorietta & Pecos is notorious but the discord feels human/living to me.

Interesting, I have lived in Colorado since I was 4 years old & hadn’t heard of anti-Chinese riots but I will have to look that up!

You might enjoy the southwestern region of Colorado; specifically the region that spans from the Great Sand Dunes west to the Canyons of the Ancients & I would emphasize visiting Mesa Verde, in particular.

How do we know that haunted places or ghosts are related in anyway to deceased people?

I think this is a common misconception about ghosts. There is no evidence they are the spirits or souls of people that have died.

My mother didn't notice it, but my father and I felt a physical chill as well as the anger of still present ghosts who weren't supposed to have died.

I've been back several times. It doesn't scare me; it's just spooky. My late wife's feelings were about the same as mine, but the place did make her nervous.

you do know that Ammityville has long been deemed a hoax, right?

Been several threads about it.


Little Bighorn battlefield story is interesting but it's important to point out that the "last stand" was spread out over several square miles as the person mentioning must certaintly must have remembered the clumps of white crosses indicating where the bodies of soldiers were found (and also the bodies are of course not buried there but in a separate portion of the monument - Custer National Cemetary, which is a veteran cemetery from all periods of late 19th and 20th century I beleive). Those white crosses showing the points of action and where they fell are sobering and moving enough without ghosts, or more accurately contribute to the sense that this place is still alive - clumps of 3 or 4 here and there, maybe a dozen 100 yards away, two here, maybe farther away single crosses here and there where individual soldiers were attempting to flee, etc. Indians would have been slain also along the BigHorn during the initial encounter which I don't even think is part of the National Battlefield area, I can't remember.

Amityville, not "Ammityville".

Not everyone thinks that the whole story was a hoax. Most people believe that the Lutz family moved in, thinking that they would make some money from the whole thing.
Yes, they were pretty sleazy people. Scam artists, actually. They were supposed to live there for one year.
They couldn't make it.
The whole family met with misfortune, as did the next family who lived there.

There is something there.
