First of all, I want to categorically say I DO NOT have any pictures to post. All I have is a story to tell of what happened this past weekend. I did
not witness it but my mother, who was with me at the time, did.
My mother, who is getting up in age, wanted us to take her to Skyline Drive, in the Shenandoah National Park, in Virginia. It was her birthday and she
just wanted to visit the park again because she had fallen in love with the park, the meandering road that led up the mountain and just natural beauty
the park had to offer. We left with a van-full of people, including my mom, brother and children. We drove on the mountain and stopped a couple of
times to take pictures and just observe the beauty. This was on Saturday and it was in the middle of the day. Of course the park had visitors,
sightseers, etc so it was your typical sunny Saturday afternoon.
Anyway, I am not sure where it happened but we were approximately halfway around the Skyline Drive mountain when my mother suddenly said she had seen
some "people" in the woods who appeared to all have their arms inter-locked with each other and they appeared to be "scared" for whatever reason.
I was driving the van and I slowed down and asked her where did she see it. She said she saw it about 15 minutes ago but didn't say anything to us
because she was trying to figure out the whole thing in her head.
She said they looked like a family of "black people", they all had on the same type of clothing, dark and dirty clothing, they appeared to be hiding
or on the run and from what she recalled, it must have been 5-8 people. She couldn't tell if they were male/female/children...all she felt was they
were related in some sort of strange way.
We questioned her some more and she said she noticed them approx 30 feet from off the side of the road, they were in the woods but didn't appear to
have hiking gear or anything of the sorts. Just dirty clothing. She said she also felt these were spirits, and not people.
Now let me say that my mother, all her life, has been able to see spiritual entities/beings and hear things that most people do not hear. So when she
told us this, we all listened and believed her.
What I am still trying to find out and I need to do some more digging is if there had been any recorded deaths of groups of people on Skyline Drive. I
am not sure how far back I would need to go to look but maybe some ATSers can help with this.
I know there was some killer on a rampage back in the '80s but again, I would have to research this.
