Thats the spooky truth according to Andrea Lankford, author of a new book, Haunted Hikes (Santa Monica Press). She says many of the countrys national parks are chock full of ghosts and strange goings-on.
For instance, at the Grand Canyon, rangers report seeing a strange light hovering over the grave of a trail worker who died while on the job.
And the Great Smokey Mountains National Park is home to the ghost of a native American woman who only shows herself to males visiting the park.
Most of the Park Services ghosts are harmless but Lankford says some cause real problems, such as an evil spirit who haunts the waterfalls of Yosemite and tries to entice visitors to taking a flying leap off the falls.
