One of our most recent trips out to do the fun Halloween things! We went to Anderson farms and had a blast!
Who is that little
girl on the stairs?
A photograph taken at the Colorado hotel that helped to
King’s bestselling novel “The Shining” shows what appears to be two
The Mausling family of Aurora,
Colorado, participated in a “spirit
tour” at the 108-year-old Stanley Hotel in Estes Park last month. After
returning home, they noticed a photo taken by John “Jay” Mausling that seemed
to show a young girl walking down the stairs.
John Mausling and his wife, Jessica
Martinez-Mausling, told HuffPost via email that there were no young girls in
their 11-member party or on the tour.
“At first we tried to be logical and think we somehow
missed her so we asked our kids, their girlfriends and our friend if they
remembered seeing a little girl,” they wrote. “Nobody did. We do not
remember seeing anything on the stairs when we took the picture.”
Here’s a close up of the mysterious figure on the
“I really like this photo,” Hansen said. “Assuming
that it’s not doctored, it ranks up there as one of the best photos of possible
paranormal evidence I’ve seen. If it is faked, I’ve got to hand it to them for
their level of detail and creativity because there’s usually enough easy signs
to suggest hoaxing.”
While the ghostly girl stood out the most, the photo may
also feature a second apparition.
The Mauslings said that at the time the photo was taken,
there were just two people on the stairs: the tour guide and someone else on
the tour with a cellphone. However, the image shows what could be a third
figure, who appears to be walking up the stairs and away from the tour
Hansen said he assumed this figure was just another
person walking up the stairs with the same motion blur seen around some of the
other people in the image. Then he noticed something else.
“Through the stair railing posts you should see the lower
half of this person like you do the tour guide and the shoes of the person on
the stairs… but I can’t make out any lower half,” he said.
Hansen added there was no litmus test for a ghost photo
so it’s impossible to know for sure just what was in the picture. The
Mauslings, for their part, said they don’t necessarily believe in ghosts,
but were “open-minded” and didn’t discount that they could exist.
While the Stanley Hotel is a top destination for people
who want to visit nearby Rocky
Mountain National Park, it’s also a hot spot for those hoping to have
a more otherworldly experience. Last year, a
photo of a supposed ghost at the hotel made headlines around the
world. That photo was snapped in what appeared to be the same location:
After a 1974 stay at the hotel, King called it “the
perfect ― maybe the archetypical ― setting for a ghost story.” King wrote
on his official website that he and his wife, author Tabitha King, were the
only guests when the hotel was about to close for the winter.
“That night I dreamed of my three-year-old son running
through the corridors, looking back over his shoulder, eyes wide, screaming. He
was being chased by a fire-hose. I woke up with a tremendous jerk, sweating all
over, within an inch of falling out of bed. I got up, lit a cigarette, sat in
the chair looking out the window at the Rockies, and by the
time the cigarette was done, I had the bones of the book firmly set in my mind.”
That dream became King’s third book, 1977′s “The
Shining,” which was set at the haunted Overlook Hotel. In 2014, the
book was named King’s third-best novel of all time in a Rolling Stone
