Sacred Ground-Weird Experience
Yesterday morning I drove to the site of The Battle of the Neches, which is where over 100 American Indians were massacred, some reports say over 800 were killed. Native Americans consider the ground sacred. As I get out of my truck and take off walking I noticed that it was eerily quiet, not even birds where chirping. After walking just a minute or two I really felt like I was being watched, being stupid I continued on down the trail pausing to take this photo in one turn of the trail. I continue on to the site of the massacre, which sits in a clearing roughly one hundred yards in diameter. As I get to the granite marker that marks where one of the chiefs was killed a single coyote let out with a howl! There were no other howls or sounds.
Around the marker were various items people had left, bones, feathers, etc… I only took a few photographs as the feeling of being watched grew. I returned down the trail to my truck and headed home and the first thing I do is to do some research, in one article which you can read here, many people have reported a sense of “we’re not alone”. I have never before had any feeling like that, definitely one of the strangest feelings I have experienced. FYI this is a three image HDR composite and probably the only one you will get to see of this area.
