In a rural valley near Chico, CA, there is an old covered bridge that runs over a small river. Back in the 70s when I was going to college there, the local legend was that if you walked across that covered bridge at midnight during a full moon, you’d see the ghost of a young woman who had hanged herself from the rafters in the late 1800s.
I was a very, very firm believer in things supernatural back then, and to a lesser degree, still am. The thought of encountering this wayward spirit made my skin crawl, but my girlfriend at the time talked me into going out there and testing the theory one freezing cold winter night. The sky was totally clear when we left town, but by the time we made the drive up the valley and got to the bridge, the whole valley was filled with fog so thick you couldn’t have seen a ghost two feet away.
So we didn’t see any ghosts that night… but we had a lot of fun keeping each other warm and cozy under the bridge!
