Spooky Forest...!

Here is a good little spook story for you to consider today! We all like a good spook story and a great mystery, so I figured why not have a two for one today?

Even if you don't believe in ghost and such, you'll have to admit that this story is strange. This would probably make a great movie. Gotta be better than some of the crap out there right now, right?

Hoia Baciu

Believed by many to be the most haunted forest in the world, Hoia Baciu in Transylvania is the setting for many unexplained, spooky tales. It also doesn’t help that the trees are bent and twisted in seemingly unnatural ways, giving the woods a horror movie feel.

Several visitors to the Hoia Baciu have returned from their trip terrified, claiming that burns and rashes have appeared on their bodies for no apparent reason. Some even claim to have skipped a few hours during their exploration among the creepy trees. They have no explanation for why they cannot remember what happened during the ”missing” hours.

Many people are truly convinced that ghostly apparitions hang around in the forest, and the locals absolutely refuse to set foot in it. Especially since rumors of floating heads and voices emanating from the darkness started making the rounds.

It all seems to have started back in 1968 when Alexandru Sift took a photograph inside the forest of what many continue to believe was a UFO. Another persistent story tells of a shepherd venturing into the woods with 200 sheep, never to be seen or heard from again.

Ongoing ghost hunts have turned up no clue as to what might be behind all the weird events taking place here, but paranormal experts are not giving up the ghost just yet when it comes to studying Hoia Baciu and revealing its creepy secrets to the world.

Better have our coffe in the kitchen this morning! Still a little chilly out on the patio!

Since that forest is in Dracula's backyard, it doesn't surprise me at all about all the weird stuff that happens. And since I do believe in extraterrestrials, that wouldn't surprise me either. Good story for today. I'll bring some fresh buttermilk biscuits and homemade strawberry jam to go with our coffee.

That does not look like a good place to spend the night. I think I'll pass on that.

Another mild morning here in Florida, but I still need my coffee.

Good one this morning, I'll wait for them to figure something out from this side of the world. Would hate to get lost in that forest no matter how much I love a forest.

Had to put on my fleece lined hoody this morning to move the truck out of the driveway. Hot coffee feels good going down

Wow, even those trees look spooky. I wonder if there had been a meteor explode in the atmosphere above that forest and damage the trees, thus as they continued to grow, it produced those weird shapes. Oh, I'm sorry. I am being too logical, it must have been caused by a flying saucer.

Hey Linda M...
You would almost expect it, right?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey Sixbears...
Right you are about not spending the night. No camping out there!

Thanks for coming over this morning!

Hey Jo...
Not the kind of place to get lost, that's for sure!

Thanks, sweetie, for stopping by today!

Hey Dizzy...
They are certainly in keeping with the story, that's for sure!

Many thanks for dropping in today!

Hey Mamahen...
I have to agree with you on that!

Thanks for coming over today!

Hey Phyllis...
Sounds like something from a carnival fun house, doesn't it?

Thanks for the visit today!

Living beside a huge bog I know strange things happen both there and the forest around it but so far no missing hours and floating heads :-)

Good mystery today!

Have a great day!
