Prineville, Oregon Ghost Sightings
I'm in a group called Oregon Explores group, and for a hobby of ours we like to go and investigate places where people have seen or heard about ghostly apparitions. Brian is the founder of this group and would like to know if there are any places we can do an investigation on. We have all the equipment for to do so and would let you know of any findings. If you're interested, go to Oregon Explores and leave message there with Bryan or me. Thank you.|

My father and I live in Prineville Oregon and have in the last year gotten into gold panning. We enjoy going to the Howard district, a ghost town twenty-eight miles northeast of Prineville. This was an old gold mining town with many exciting things and places to explore. One area with a lot of past mining activity is Judy Creek. We spend a lot of time there panning for gold and have experienced a few odd things.
One time we were there, we were checking out the area when we separated by about 100 feet. I was on the creek; he was on the road reading an old claim note. While he was on the road he yelled ''what's that'' I said ''I didn't say anything'', and I went along checking out the area. I leaned down to look at the creek bed when I heard what sounded like a woman scream (and not just an innocent scream, more like a blood curling one). And it really spooked me; I ran back up the bank where my father was and said ''did you hear that?'' He did not. I asked him why he kept asking me what I was saying, and told him I had not said anything while I was on the creek. He said he thought he heard people talking, like a whole town of people. He also told me that he has heard what sounds like a town of people every time we have been near there in the past.
This is a very remote area, and there is never anyone up there while we are. Another odd time was when we were both panning for gold, and it was a cloudy day with no patches of sun, temperature felt like thirty-five degrees. A second later a warm patch of air passed over us that felt like about sixty-five degrees. We both looked at each other, stood up and moved on. Let me explain at this time that we are both realists. We find a reason behind everything that happens. And we do not get spooked too easy.
