This Tunnel In Colorado Is So Haunted It’ll Scare The Living Daylights Out Of You
Once a booming mining and railroad state, Colorado is full of new and old tunnels both big and small. While large, nearly 2-mile-long passages like the iconic Eisenhower Tunnel are fairly unique and memorable, the topic of today’s article proves to be the same, except for different reasons:
Located in the hills of Colorado Springs' Bear Creek Park lie the tunnels of Gold Camp Road; a series of 3 arched tunnels that once served as not only a means of travel for the railroad, but automobiles as well.
Once the railroad's popularity decreased, several of the tunnels were closed except for three, which were converted from railroad to automobile use.
What makes these historic tunnels haunted? According to legend, one of the tunnels completely collapsed while a school bus full of orphans was driving through, instantly killing the driver and children upon impact.
Since the children's (alleged) untimely deaths, those traveling to the area have reported several paranormal experiences, including the sound of children's screams, small and dusty handprints found on cars, and even the feeling of being pushed or scratched when no one is around.
While most of these occurrences can be experienced in the collapsed third tunnel, there have still been reports of activity coming from the second.
It should also be noted that some workers met their deaths during the construction of the tunnels.
Bad omen? We think so.
What do you think: Are the daunting gates in place to keep passersby safe from the old and dilapidated tunnels? Or to keep the spirits trapped within?
