Re: "I WILL NOT Go Into These Mountains ALONE"
I live out here in the sticks, all I have to do is walk out my backdoor and I'm there. People die in the AZ desert all the time because they underestimate their need for water and rest. Day hikers die *ALL THE TIME* on the trails in the little hills in town they call "mountains", easterners crack me up. Heat-exhaustion and heat-stroke can happen much faster than you think.

Apart from the heat, rocky terrain, natural spiked boobytraps everywhere, there are the predator species present, bears, mountain lions, bobcats, mexican grey wolves, coyotes, feral dogs and goddamned murder-hobo tweakers. Of all those the biggest threat is from the human predators but you really shouldn't be stepping into any wilderness unarmed. Even if you have cell reception and they know exactly where you are with GPS, nobody is getting to you anytime soon if seconds count.

If you're alone out here, there's a good chance that if you do die out here nobody will ever find your carcass especially if you're off trail hunting for lost gold in places where nobody's stepped in maybe half a century or longer.

But as far as the spooky shit goes, IDK. I've been sitting around a campfire and had donkeys moving around just past the firelight braying and making a ruckus in the dark and it can seem pretty spooky at times, same goes for the first time you have a pack of coyotes playing and hunting close by, it might only be half-dozen of them but when you hear it you'd swear it was a hundred of them.

The swooping thing ... most likely an owl, I've had them buzz by in the dark and yeah you can feel the turbulence in the air as they pass by and hear their feathers lightly ruffle and it does sound a bit like cloth but the hovering ring wraith bit, yeaaaaah, I'm not buying it.

So you don't believe there are various creatures out there such as aliens and reptilians?

Seems like an excellent place to get stoned and have a majorly cool freak out. Putting it on my new bucket list.

A number of years ago me and a couple of buddies climbed Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, we smoked the ganja all the way up and then when we got to the base of Tuckerman's Ravine, we got blasted and then we started our ascent up the 2,000 vertical feet. It was absolutely awesome.

We used to free climb cliff's the same way.

Google map it. Pretty tiny mountain range. And not very tall.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77586719


24 square miles

Smallest wilderness and killed the most

Very rugged terrain
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77496865


"Square miles" makes anyplace sound huge. Most of that is flat desert or trails. It is a very well used area and is not really remote at all. Yes, it is "rugged" but they are really just rocky hills.

I watched that earlier today and he brought up a good point about how the government closed off land that would have been prime for expansion.

Lots of sites like this. Sequatchie River headwaters, valley, and caves are interesting in Tennessee. Government bought and closed off headwaters cave system. They put in two metal gates with locks, and have different sets of keys whereby it takes two people from two locations to unlock! Talked to locals who said giant bones found in caves. Indian tribes from diverse indian groups also buried in area and local said authorities can’t figure out why.

Specially ones looking for gold

I have some famous Indian mounds just down the road from me. I hear some people say it is a haunted area, but I don't believe it. It's too peaceful.
 Quoting: GA Girl


We have one just across the fence and deep in the woods. Which I have been to. It is not famous in fact my husband is probably the only person that knows where it is. No scary anything about it.
