The Ancient Apparitions of Russell Caverns
Our final destination was Russell Caverns. Many visitors to these ancient caves have reported seeing ghosts there. Many have photographed ghosts and others have had ghostly encounters. The caves were occupied by Native Americans for over 9000 years and archealogical evidence is on prominent display in the cave museum. It is a short walk to the cave from the museum and it was a lovely day. They sun filtered through the leaves painting the forest floor like stained glass. We were the only ones there and the quiet was almost unnatural. There was no guide and there were no crowds. We entered the mouth of the cave alone and my son clutched my hand and said he was afraid.
The caves definately had a presence. It was the type of presence that fills me with an odd calm and a desire to linger. So we wandered through the small wooded area around the cave and the short path within the gaping mouth of the cavern for some time looking at the displays and reading the plaques. I took dozens of photos while my boys climbed over the rocks. My last set of pictures, taken in the same set as the ones above and just a few seconds later, show some very interesting movement. It was a clear day with no fog or cloud cover. I'm not sure what is going on in these photos, but I'm open to speculation.
