Haunted Trails, Including White Sands

A top ten piece on haunted hiking places. Usually I think of haunted buildings, cemeteries, but hiking trails is a new location to think about. Why not? There are haunted areas, sans buildings (Horton, Oregon is one such place, in my experience), forests, such as the Hoia-Baciu Forest in Romania,  and of course, this item immediately brings to mind the research David Paulides has done with missing people in rural areas, including our national parks. In terms of UFOs, I found the following on the haunted history at White Sands National Monument interesting:

10 Top Haunted Trails To Go Hiking: If you happen to be here during sunset, keep your wits about you.

Because that is when you are likely to encounter the ghost of the Great White Sands. Otherwise known as Pavla Blanca.

Native legend states that the ghost Pavla Blanca was once a Spanish Maiden. Her lover, and husband-to-be, the conquistador Hernando de Luna, met his demise in the White Sands desert in 1540. (Backpackerverse.com)
White Sands of course is the place of many a weird encounter, including contactee Daniel Fry's experiences. Fry wrote The White Sands Incident and They Rode in Space-Ships, which can be downloaded for free.
