What I am about to show you is creepy. Really creepy.

The moment in which I discovered what I am about to show you literally gave me goosebumps. The weird goosebumps, though. Not the ones you get on a thrill ride, but the ones you get when you experience something paranormal...

A few months ago, I posted about a little trip my friends and I made to an old abandoned house in Spanish Fork. You can read the post here. I suggest you open it up in another window or another tab or something so you can follow along with me as I explain what I've seen.

Now, before I get into the creepy stuff, let me tell you that I've never seen a ghost. I do, however, believe they exist. According to the Mormon faith, when we die our spirits go to the "spirit world" which, as we have been told, exists here, but on another plane of existence. (More insight into this can be found at www.lds.org)

I've always figured that a ghost (or spirit) is seen when either a) God makes special allowance, or b) the laws of the universe provide a moment, or glimpse, into that which is normally unseen.

So, with that in mind...

The other day, I was showing a friend the post with the scary house. As I was looking at the pictures, I noticed something I hadn't noticed before. Keep in mind, these are the original pictures from that post. I have not altered or tampered with them AT ALL! In fact, I encourage you to click on them in the original post as well to see what I'm showing you...

In the second picture (the one with Scott and Laura in front of the house) look for a moment at the first window that is boarded up...

Isn't that creepy!? Yes, it could just be a pattern in the plywood, but it totally looks like a man's figure to me. The next picture, however, is what really kicked it for me...

Look at the twin windows upstairs. Look at the left one carefully. Do you see a bearded man? Are those stains on the walls? Dust? Or a ghost?

The thing is, when we were there, I got a really weird vibe. More so than from other abandoned places I've been to. I wanna go back now, though, and take more pictures. Part of me is really intrigued by this, while another part of me is downright freaked out.



  1. Barry I'll totally go with you! I've seen ghosts before, so maybe they'll be more accepting of me! haha
    Seriously though, that is creepy! And I TOTALLY saw the guy in the window.

    Maybe he's friends with the lady in white I saw when I was 6....hmmm.....
