There is a road called the ''Devil's Elbow'' in the north part of Renton. The road earned this nickname because of the many tragic car accidents that occurred there, and now it is closed to auto traffic. You can still travel it on foot, if you dare. The houses are fewer and fewer as you travel deeper into heavily wooded landscape of looming trees and tangled vines. The sound of cars fade and is replaced by the gurgle of water from the creek and the foreboding cries of scavenger crows. An eerie feeling, as if you are deep in some lonesome wilderness is at odds at your sensibilities knowing you are so close to the busy city of Renton.
The freeway acts as a barrier as if to guard this suspect place from the rest of the world. If you peer into the brush lined gullies that drop off sharply along the twisty roadside, you might catch a glimpse of rusted metal and a flash of chrome of one of the many victim's vehicles that remain behind whilst their occupants have departed for their uncertain fate. Eventually the road turns into a trail where the pavement is cracked, and weeds have sprouted. Heading south and in the distance houses appear. You have just survived ''The Devil's Elbow,'' and unlike some lived to tell the tale.
Then there was the road they named ''Chuck Norris. '' But of course they had to change the name back again because nobody crossed ''Chuck Norris'' and lived.

Comment by Anon: Nice!.
Comment by Mister: This is true! The entrance to this dead end road is just south and behind the McDonald's at the 44th Exit off I-405 freeway. It parallels the freeway through heavy woods and a creek flow between the road and the freeway. Grab a burger and check out the Devil's Elbow....but keep your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel cause we're going to the Devil's ELBOW and going to have a real.....good time!.

About 15 years ago my boyfriend and I bought a house in a small neighborhood along the Cedar River by the Maplewood golf course. I was drawn to the house, and we bought the small 900sq ft house on the corner. Right away I started to feel like someone was in the house watching me. My boyfriend worked graveyard, so I had to sleep alone most the nights. I started having terrible nightmares. They were very gory, and some would repeat night after night. I got some tarot cards one day. I opened the package and followed instructions. When I looked at the deck some cards were now upside down. That freaked me out because these cards when I originally opened them they were all faced up. When you shuffle you shuffle from side to side. How did these cards become upside down? I got scared and threw them away.
