Vacation 2022: Haunted Texas Roadtrip Day 2

Today, we headed down to Huntsville Texas which is about an hour and 20 minute drive from the house and then, we headed over to Bowden Road aka Demon’s Road. We got a late start so it was already dark when we got there.

The place has a serious creep factor, and that was before we got out of the car. It’s another dirt road like Bragg Road, but it’s said to have more activity than Bragg. Bragg has trees that cross over the road creating a canopy in places. We didn’t go down the road that far, but the trees didn’t come that close to the road.

I don’t have any photos of our time there. We got out of the car, got our cameras out, and I took some photos while my son started taping. We had no cell service so he couldn’t live stream just like on Bragg Road.

As soon as I started taping, my phone completely died. I mean, just dead. No battery warning or anything. My son was using a flashlight as well as his phone, and the flashlight died right after my phone did. He asked me if I saw something down the road, and I couldn’t see anything it was so dark. His phone died a second later, and he said he felt himself get shoved.

He said it wasn’t hard, more of a “get a move on” type shove. He’d walked several yards in front of the car, and I had stayed by the front of the car. As I turned to walk to the driver’s side, I heard something hit the hood of the car, like a slap. My son was too far away to have touched the car.

We got both got in the car as fast as we could, and the car didn’t want to start at first. I’d turned the car off, no headlights or anything so the battery wasn’t drained – shouldn’t have been.

Needless to say, we got out of there as fast we could. When we got home, there were no pictures or video on either phone though I’m sure the pictures I’d taken had been saved.

I have no explanation for what happened. I didn’t see anything on the photos I took, and Joe says he didn’t see anything when he was taping. I can’t say for sure the place is haunted, but it was creepy. It was also a bit unnerving. I didn’t stay long enough to be scared properly, but I’m sure it was the right thing to do.

We plan to go back again, and we hope to be able to record something when we do.

Tomorrow night, we’re planning to stay at the Excelsior Hotel in Jefferson Texas.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!


Vacation 2022: Haunted Texas Roadtrip Day 1

We decided not to go to El Paso this year, going northward instead. That was the plan – then I started doing some research. Several of the places that were on the list for the Haunted Texas Roadtrip weren’t available. This meant looking for other places to visit.

Our first place is Bragg Road/The Scenic Ghost Road/Ghost Road right outside Saratoga Texas. This place is about 1.5 hours southeast of us so, my son and I decided to check it out. It’s supposed to be the most haunted road in Texas.

I took some photos and some video. We got there close to sunset:

Please, remember I’m not a professional photographer or videographer. I just point and shoot, taking the best photos I can. I did try my hand at making a video and once I’m able to buy the program, I’ll reload the video without the watermark. For now, here is the video:

Yes, the video has a watermark on it. I’m trying out the program and when/if I buy it, I’ll upload the video without the watermark. As it is, I hope it doesn’t detract too much from the video. I also know the audio isn’t that great – I’m new to this whole thing remember. I’m learning a lot from just what I did today, and I hope to do better with the next video.

Personally, I was a bit disappointed by the whole thing. It was interesting to see what I’m guessing to be the so called “Saratoga Lights” or “Bragg Road Lights”, but I was never scared. I was a little creeped out, but that was about it. It could’ve been the time of day and/or the time of the month as being the reason we didn’t see any activity other than the lights – who knows right?

I think I still got some decent photos while there was still light. The light on my phone leaves much to be desired. I don’t think I’ll be making videos professionally any time soon. 🙂

Let me know what you think. 🙂

YouTube Tuesday: Abandoned Miniatures

This channel has only been around a few months and only has 6 videos so far. However, those videos are amazingly creepy and very good!! Check out the video below to see what I mean:

I don’t know the name of the man who does these videos as he doesn’t say. He does say he’s an urban explorer and photographer who has turned to creating dioramas based on pictures he’s taken.

I think he’s amazing, and I’ve already subscribed to his channel in the hopes he’ll keep going with his builds. He has some great techniques for making his creepy creations as well.

I highly recommend checking out at least one of his videos – the realism is incredible!!
