    (#1) Grouse Lake Has Its Own Jason Voorhees

    Many hikers have reported a wailing sound erupting from Grouse Lake. The first documented report of this phenomenon came from Galen Clark, Yosemite’s first park ranger in 1867. Clark heard the cries and thought perhaps it was a dog so he asked the local Native American tribe if they’d lost one. They told him it wasn’t a dog and not to go after it.

    According to them, an indigenous boy drowned in the lake many years ago and now he haunts it, calling out to those who pass by. If anyone goes into the water after him, he’ll grab their feet and pull them down into the lake to drown.

    (#6) A Teenager's Disappearance Sparked Conversations About Whether The National Parks Service Was Covering Up Such Incidents

    Stacy Ann Arras was 14 in 1981 when she was camping with family and friends in Yosemite. Wanting to go capture some photos at a nearby lake, she and an older member of the group headed that way. The older man allegedly stopped to rest halfway there and let Stacy go on ahead. She never returned, and not a single trace of her was ever found despite intense search and rescue attempts. Her widely publicized disappearance garnered the attention of paranormal author David Paulides, who conducted an investigation into the Arras disappearance and ultimately claimed that corruption among national park officials was suspicious and that something sinister might have been purposefully covered up in regards to Arras's strange disappearance.

    This has never been proven but has stirred up controversy around an already fearful topic.

    Then in July, a teacher at the Yosemite Institute, Joie Ruth Armstrong, went missing. Her body was found 27 feet away from her head in a drainage ditch. The deranged woman-hating lunatic responsible turned out to be Cedar Lodge’s handyman Cary Stayner. He would use his position to gain access to his victims.
