Beaver Creek State Park, Gretchen's Lock
This was sent to me from a lady named, Kris. I had met her while out at the Negley Festival. She was kinda enough to share this with me and everyone that reads the blog. I was very excited and very grateful to have her share this with me.
I would like to say a special thank you to Kris for Sharing this story with all of us.
The second Sunday in Oct 2007 we were having a family picnic in Sprucevale & that evening, approx or we were sitting around the campfire. It was very dark except for the fire. All of a sudden we heard a very strange sound, like a howl or a scream. We thought it could have been a bird, but we just couldn't identify the sound, we continued enjoying the evening & a few minutes later we heard the same sound. At this point we all felt a little uneasy & decided to pack our gear & get out of there quickly !!!!! Earlier in the evening a group came by & told us they were "ghost hunters" & showed us pictures they took of "orbs" (sorry if incorrect spelling). About 2 weeks after our family picnic in Sprucevale, I read a article in our Canfield newspaper about this group (Haunted Investigative Organization). In the article, it told about their experience at Sprucevale , the same day we were there. They explained that while they were on their investigation they sensed a presence & heard a howl or a scream just as we did. Earlier in the day they found a single oddly shaped footprint in the mud on the bank of the creek. They returned later & took a casting of the footprint. It is very fascinating & I find it really interesting that they also experienced what we did on the same.
