|Trail of the Spirits - Sica Hollow|
" a beautiful small hollow carved out by nature, abundant with flora and fauna, streams waterfalls and walking trails, trees ablaze with the colors of Fall, a place shrouded in mystery, replete with tales of spirits from the native Sioux who proclaimed it "sica" (pronounced she-cha) meaning evil or bad."If you Google it, you will discover that it is a place of legends, both past and present... tales of burning campfires seen from a distance, and native drums heard in the dark of night; stories of a creature large and hairy; whispers of encounters with spirits, and an eerie silence enshrouding all.
I have been to Sica Hollow in daytime and early evening, and felt the presence of things unseen. I would not choose to be there at night.
