The infamous Buckout Road

Hey all!

Sorry I haven't written in a while but every time I went walking in the woods I would forget my camera. Or there would be days where I would wake up and say "YES! I'm going to go today!" but it would end up raining.

C'est la vie haha.

Anyway, my best friend (let's call her "K") and I decided to go to the infamous Buckout Road! Anyone who lives in Westchester that knows about the paranormal knows about the existence of this road. Hmm, I guess I should explain some of the history? There are so many myths about what happens there, Albert Fish (serial killer that enjoyed eating children) used to live there, witches being burnt at the stake, a woman in white, ghostly entities, albino cannibals, etc. There's a cemetery that one day I would like to explore as well but only during the day.

Here's a wonderful site somebody actually devoted to the road:

So K and I went at night however we didn't get out of the car. Besides the entire place being incredibly creepy, we also didn't feel the need as two young ladies to wander through the woods while dark. Plus, there's no place to park! As we drove through it slowly with our windows down, I stopped the car occasionally to take a picture as well as K. On the road ahead in the distance we noticed a tall black shadow run across the street, I saw movements in my side view mirrors and more shadows walk behind my car. Also when you enter this area (starts off as Hall Street and turns into Buckout Road) even if there was no wind and it's a beautiful day, it's always windy and always seems much darker once you're on the road. I once stupidly enough drove through when there was a hint of a storm coming, lightning in the distance, slow rumbling thunder. As soon as I got to the beginning of the road, the lighting seemed right over head, the thunder was deafening and the wind was horrendous!

Ok, back to today! We reached the end rather quickly so we turned around to drive through once more. At one point when I had stopped for K to take a few pictures, with both of our windows down and no music playing, we distinctively heard heavy footsteps walking along side my car and erratic breathing. Listening carefully the rest of the time, we heard what sounded like crying in the distance, weird snarls, high-pitched whines, clicking sounds, and what sounded like something squeaking slowly then faster as if someone on an old bike. Mind you, no one was around and as far as we could see in to the woods there weren't any animals either.

On the pictures we caught quite a few orbs and in a few pictures it's interesting to notice that there seems to be dark shadow like images where the flash had hit everything except in a few areas. In one picture in particular where you can see part of the black pavement of the road, if you look on the left hand side you can make out a tall shadow standing on the road. If you enhance the picture even more you can see it so I will post both the original and the enhanced version.
