It's so easy to get spooked out where I live, and on my property. We have a Medicine trail behind my property that leads about 1/4 down to where we currently rent, threw this yard and down across the river, up the mountain to some dance grounds. This is not a "good" medicine either. This trail is used by the Putowon (POO-TOE-WON) which is a shape shifter, a witch type person. A medicine man/woman that does evil and not good. Or so our Tribal legend says so.
I live in a somewhat urban area, so I don't know what its like to live near the woods. I do live near the everglades, though. I like nature its just I'm not a big fan of going out at night. I have heard stories of the skinwalker and other things. Its just cool to think that there might be thousands of animals that lurk past human detection But its also kinda creepy.
