Ash Cave is closed from dusk to dawn. Ghost investigations after dark are part of park events.
For centuries, hundreds of thousands of the living have entered Ash Cave. In the light of day. But some have never left. One of these lingering souls residing there in the darkness waits for hikers along the trail, watching them, peering at them from behind trees. Following. Sometimes, she calls softly out to them. She is the Pale Lady of Ash Cave, the ghost that has been known to tag along on night hikes. In the Darkness. You don't want to be the last in line with her ghostly presence only footsteps away. And there are others. Dead soldiers. Native Indians. A child. Even nonbelievers have heard them, felt them, seen them.
The investigation was in Ash Cave on October 29. There were approximately 100 people. The amount of sand and dust kicked up from people walking around distorted most of the images (many people misconstrue the little reflections of camera flash on the sand kicked up as orbs). However, we were able to take a few clear ones during the hunt with infrared and full spectrum cameras.
In the late 1800s and 1900s, churches met in Ash Cave complete with choirs. Listen carefully and see if you can hear the singing in the background of our chatter.
In 1973, an 11 year-old girl was tragically killed in the cave when a stump feel from a cliff edge above the area she was hiking. Her name was "Debbie." You can just barely hear the name at the beginning of this EVP.
