"I was backpacking in Yellow Stone above the tree line at about 10,500 feet. We are hiking on a ridge above a lake when all the sudden we come across a horse skull. No body just the skull, pretty cool looking. We get to our campsite not to far away from the lake near where we found the horse skull. When we get [sic] climb down to the lake we find the body of the horse rotting on the edge of the lake with with negative film strips floating in the water and laying around the shore near the body."
"My gf and I were hiking the Appalachian Trail and we're alone and haven't seen anyone for a while.
We get to the shelter one night and there is this old guy, very disheveled with a walking staff that has a baby doll head on the top (immediate creepy vibes). It was just us and him at the shelter that night - were [sic] stayed on the top level and he was down below. I don't think I slept at all. It got real creepy when he started telling stories that night of how he used to drive a cab in New Orleans and he told about how he didn't mind if people had sex in the back of his cab, as he could watch in the rear view mirror. Got up early the next day and got the f out; left him some Power Bars as he looked like he needed them."
"I was backpacking in White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire and camped out for the night after a day hike. I wondered [sic] off from our fire to go take a pee and stumbled upon a circle etched into the ground with tuning forks surrounding the circle standing up straight. It looked like a creepy ritual circle and it bugged me out so I booked it back to the group."
"Hiking to one of my favorite spots in the Appalachian Mountains I came across what appeared to be a recently built stone alter with a large wooden cross situated behind it. There was a string tied to the cross that went directly over the alter and tied to a tree across the way. Several other strings tied to trees all of which had markings freshly carved into them. There was a pentagram of rocks in the middle of all of it.
There's been lots of rumors throughout the years of satanic cults worshiping in the woods of this area. This was my first experience with it."
"A cage. Not like a trapping cage or anything but something that could easily hold 5-10 average sized people.
I was hiking in the mountains just above the house I lived in, at the time, in Missoula, Mt. Took maybe 45 minutes of walking, mostly uphill and without a path, to get to the spot. Round steel bars for the edges and rope instead of chain link for the walls and ceiling. It was all set up just on the far side of the ridge line I was walking, so it couldn't be seen I suppose.
Nothing around it, no foot prints or tire tracks or anything. The rope looked undamaged as well. No idea what it was for but it definitely creeped me the f out."
"Bush-walking in NSW (Australia) me and my friend came across this weird platform looking thing made out of rocks. Later that year the cops arrested some bloke on suspicion of the murders of a series of backpackers who had gone missing over the course of a few years, and at the sites of several of the murders slightly off in the bush were these 'altars'.
The tv [sic] program Current Affairs runs footage of one (the trial and run up to it were all over the news) and yeah it's that thing we found. The 'altars' were typically no more than 300 yards from the victim's shallow graves. The guy who was arrested and subsequently convicted for the murders is Ivan Milat, Australia's worst serial killer."
"I was backpacking in western China and ran across a military rocket, cached at an abandoned campsite in an area with a fairly large anti-Chinese (terror oriented) nomadic population. I got out of there as fast as I could."
