I'm glad we got to explore the place.
Even though I haven't really been able to find out much of anything
about it, somehow that just kinda makes it more intriguing. I
have heard stories from people who told me they felt as if something
was watching/following them as they explored the road, and I do admit
it did have that hushed, watchful kinda atmosphere to it when we were
there. I can see how it could easily get a spooky reputation.
And I'm so curious as to why it's
named Witches Hollow... the 'Witches' indicates multiple witches, was
that done for a reason... or was it just a grammatical
oversight? Then there's the intersection of Witches Hollow and Agress
Road... I dunno what that road was named for either, but it's
so close to being 'aggress' ("aggress- To set upon; to attack")
that it helps to lend a kind of sinister air to the crossroads.
Throw in the way that Witches Hollow
Road was mysteriously blocked off, the nearby cemetery, and the big
brooding vultures that roost all over the area, and it all just
makes for a really creepy-cool spot to explore.
(...and speaking of the vultures, btw
at certain times of year upwards of 50-60 vultures can be seen
roosting on the rails of an old water tower that overlooks the area of
Witches Hollow and the cemetery; people of Roosevelt affectionately
refer to them as the 'Roosevelt Roosters' and it's a strange sight to
see them all up there silently staring, as if they're just
watching/waiting for their next meal... *eeep!*)
Do you have any background information or stories to tell about this
to purchase one of these, or any of my other photos...?
