    Unwanted visitor watches unsuspecting backpacker

    Unwanted visitor watches unsuspecting backpacker

    [ranking: 5]
    "I was out in the Dark Canyon Wilderness of Utah after two weeks of driving and backpacking around the country alone. The plan was a seven-day trip and after a few days of setbacks I was on my last night. By this time I was already a little scared of the dark but that's just what happens when you are your only company for three weeks. Anyway, on the sixth day, about halfway through my hike, I ran out of water. I made camp and went upstream in search of water. After a little hiking I found a little spring with deliciously cold refreshing water. I drank some before realizing I didn't bring my water bottles so I hiked the half mile or so back to the camp to get them. On my trip back to fill my water bottles, I kept feeling really vulnerable and uncomfortable. Every little rustle in the bushes set me off. I could hear birds calling in the distance that set me off. I kept looking for something following me.
    I can only describe my emotion as pure terror. It got to the point where I picked up a branch for a weapon. I kept telling myself that it was just paranoia but I couldn't shake the feeling that I was being watched. I finally got to the water and filled up my bottle, constantly looking over my shoulder. The feeling of unease was still with me when I headed back to my camp.There I came upon a fresh mountain lion print placed directly between my two footprints. It's one thing to think that your fears are unfounded paranoia, it's much worse to know they are true."

    Lone dam operator has a night visitor

    Lone dam operator has a night visitor

    [ranking: 10]
    ??I worked as a security guard at a hydroelectric dam in Virginia in a fairly isolated location.  About a month after I was hired, one of the guys at the dam told me that most security guards out there quit after a few days because they got so creeped out being alone at the dam at night, and he was glad I was sticking it out. In truth, it could be creepy. Sometimes at night, when I was patrolling the basement level of the dam itself, I??d think about the fact that I was fifty feet below the water-line on the low side with the only human being about a mile and a half away. Sometimes I??d hear weird noises in the woods, or catch a flash of a shadow while I was inside the dam. It takes a lot to scare me, though, and I knew I was either hearing critters in the woods or my mind was playing tricks on me. One night, however, something happened that scared the living hell out of me. It was a little after 11 p.m., and I was sitting in the guard house reading a book. Suddenly, I heard a tap at the door. What was creepy about the guardhouse at night was that when you had the lamp inside turned on, people could look through the windows at you, but the glare made it difficult for you to see outside. 
    When I heard the tap at the door, I thought it was a bug hitting the glass; it was so faint, and I knew I had the place to myself. Then the tap came again, more insistent this time. I grabbed my flashlight and opened the door. There was no one there. Then I let the door slip from my hand and shut behind me. To my left ?? previously concealed by the door as I had opened it ?? was a huge man, at least 400 pounds, wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray sweatpants.
     
    The sweatshirt was smeared with fresh blood. My heart started hammering. My blood ran cold. I was so scared I couldn??t speak. As it turns out, he was a local fisherman who had been fishing off the bridge and he was wondering why the power company hadn??t started back-pumping into the lake yet, because they usually started a little before 11 and that was what always drew in the big striped bass. He was smeared with blood because he??d already caught and gutted a couple and wiped his hands on his shirt. He felt really bad when he realized that he had approached me basically in the same way that a murderer in a horror movie would have. I am thankful to this day that I was unarmed security, because if I??d had a gun, I would have either shot him or accidentally shot myself while trying to shoot him.??

    Trail crew hears inhuman screams

    "I was working on a trail crew in the Trinity Alps of Northern California. We had 13 people on the crew and a few support staff. At this point we'd been in the woods for about two and a half months. We had all seen and heard bears, mountain lions, pretty much anything you can think of that would make terrifying noises. After dinner one evening, most of us are sitting around the fire doing whatever and all of a sudden there's a LOUD agonized screaming sound. It was unlike anything any of us had heard. If I had to describe it, I'd call it a mountain lion's shriek combined with the horror of a banshee. Everyone was understandably freaked the hell out. It sounded reasonably close so a few of us, myself included, decided to investigate. About three miles from our base camp there was a creature tied to a tree, absolutely losing it's mind. It was a llama! At this point, it's 10 p.m. or so, and 25 miles from the nearest trailhead. We tried to calm it down without much success and went back to camp.The next morning, the llama was gone. It looked like it had broken its restraint and ran off.
    We kept hearing the horrible llama noises from time to time for a few weeks. Towards the end of the season, a group of hunters passed us on the trail and after chatting for a bit, we found out they tied the llama there because it decided to be stubborn and refused to walk anymore. Apparently it laid down on the trail and WOULD not move. So they left it and decided to come back for it. We figured at that point, the llama was probably dead. We hadn't heard any hellacious llama screams for a few months and didn't really think about it. However, at the end of the season when we all finally got back in the crew van and were driving out, that damn llama jumped across the road about 30 yards in front of us. I still think about the demon llama from time to time.   

    Farmers witness ant invasion

    Farmers witness ant invasion

    [ranking: 7]
    "I spent an entire year at my cousin's farm in Colombia. It's very deep into the mountains and 90 percent of his land is covered in forest. One day I was picking some tomatoes when suddenly the whole mountain goes silent. Not a single animal made a sound. All of a sudden every critter imaginable starts coming out of every hole and every crack and starts running uphill. Massive tarantulas, huge cockroaches, beetles, mice, rats, etc. Anything that crawled on land was rushing away. Then the dogs started barking and whimpering. My cousin yelled, "La ronda, La ronda!" which means "The round, the round!" He tells me to get inside the house.
    Then he gets a bag out with some sort of poison and starts pouring it outside the house. I hear what sounds like running water coming uphill from the trees. I looked outside and saw what was probably millions of ants crawling up the mountain and eating every living thing in their path. It was absolutely terrifying. I couldn't see the ground because there were so many ants. Luckily, the poison worked and the ants crawled away from the house. My cousin was happy because the ants killed whatever pests were around."

    "Some friends and I took my truck up in the mountains during the winter time and we towed each other on a tube across the snow. We'd drop the tailgate in my old long-bed Ford and a few guys would sit in the back with one of those bazillion candlelight spotlights. When I was driving it'd be fun to make really wide turns in the dark so the person on the tube didn't have the luxury of headlights or taillights to somewhat illuminate their trail. The person in the bed of the truck with the spotlight would be funny and shine the light clear off to the side so it was pitch black if you were on the tube. One particular winter night, a snowstorm was rolling in so we headed up to the usual spot. It was really DARK that night. I was driving while a friend sat on the tube.  
    The guy with the spotlight shined the light clear to the side of the truck and as I checked my mirror, I made eye contact with a guy dressed in jeans, a red plaid shirt, and an orange baseball cap. As we made eye contact, I lost all control of my body for probably only five seconds, but it felt like an eternity. I stopped the truck and turned it around and asked the guys if they saw him. They all said no, so I flipped the truck around and turned on the high beams and they shined the spotlight all over. I got out and looked for footprints in the fresh snow and saw nothing. 
    That night we went back home and I told my dad about the weird experience and didn't think anything of it. A week later on the news, the police reported finding a body in the area close to where we were and asked for any tips. My dad convinced me to call the police and tell them we were up in the area and saw that guy. I called and an investigator came over to the house, I told him I saw that man seven days ago. As soon as I said that, the investigator asked me, "Are you are sure about the date?" When I said I was positive, he showed me a picture of the body they found wearing the same red plaid shirt and orange ball cap. Turns out it was a man who suffered from some mental handicaps and committed suicide on the mountain, one month BEFORE I saw him."

    Couple's tent gets slashed open while they're sleeping inside it

    [ranking: 11]
    "I was camping in upstate New York a week after two prisoners escaped from a prison. This was a high notoriety escape and was national news. My girlfriend and I had hiked and camped for two days before this. We were very comfortable, had met a lot of awesome people, but everyone was on alert of the escapees. We had settled in a remote area upstate New York with no one around that night. I was sound asleep that night. At 5:30 a.m. I had started to wake but stayed in my tent, trying to go back to sleep for an hour or two. Not long after I was awake did I hear rustling in the woods around our campsite. At first it was a few rustles, which caught my attention, but not enough to be alarmed. Suddenly, the rustles are right outside our tent and I am on edge. Before I could even tap my girlfriend, all hell breaks loose. My tent is slashed open with a knife while I am watching.
    My heart almost went through my throat. Before I knew what was happening I was being pile driven into the ground by men with guns. Thankfully I had noticed in the seconds that the men had POLICE armor on. I started screaming out my name, my address, my Social Security number. My girlfriend was even jumped on and forcefully subdued while she was sleeping. Once everyone's adrenaline calmed down, we showed our ID's and proved we were just camping. It was one of the scariest moments of my life. Turns out we were not far from where the prisoners were just spotted, and the police hadn't come across anyone in days had thought for sure they had found the escapees."
