up and down to them that this woman had to have been a ghost. My friend Steph started to get scared. Our friend Colton decided we should not go down there, so we just went driving around in the down town area instead.
I believe to this day that the woman we saw was a ghost, but I do not think she was a harmful spirit. She just seemed sad. I have not gone to the river at night ever since then, and I usually always have someone with me. But since the
flood, that has not been an issue. After reading the other stories about the apparitions in Ruidoso, I felt like mine might actually be able to hold up.
And who knows, maybe someone else has seen this sad woman by the river.|

An occurrence I have learned about in Ruidoso was creepier than 'ghost' like. One weekend my girlfriend and her friend had come to Ruidoso with my friend Jason and me. Inadvertently we had gone to Roswell for our National Guard drill and my girlfriend's purse with her car keys were in our Jeep. Thus they had no way of leaving the house, secluded, about 12 miles outside the outskirts of Ruidoso. Being relatively stubborn and restless the girls left to walk the 12 miles into town to use a payphone and call us. Kim's cell phone was dead, and her friend had not gotten hers to work either. Four to five miles into the walk they noticed, on the top of a cut in the road, a cat watching them. There was something odd about the cat, the eyes did not seem normal, but they walked on. There were no houses nearby, but this did not make any difference at the time.
As they continued, the cat would appear in front of them, staring and watching, never moving. After two or three times, the girls would watch the cat; he would sit where he had been, watching them intently as they would go out of sight. Then, there the cat would be, again, in front of them. This happened for about a mile. Towards the end of the mile, getting freaked out by the cat, the girls went over to the other side of the road to get a closer look. There, on the ground, were photos strewn about of a woman in a bathtub with a very eerie, scared look in her eyes. The photos were obviously made in the 1970s or 80s. The weathering on them was not from rain, or exposure, but they appeared to be taken out of an album or photo box and just placed there. There was a series of them there. As they looked at the photos the cat just stared at them. They were, at this time, completely freaked out.
