Old graveyard in Clay county, Alabama


This is from a trip to Eastern Bumblefuck, Alabama. After driving for a few hours, parking, then hiking through the woods, we finally came upon some old tombs that were just piles of rock. As we progressed deeper into the woods, the graves became noticeably more modern. Still, I don't believe there were any  from the 1900s or later.


After three to four rock mounds, there were a number of granite slabs, and a collapsed wooden structure.


Beyond the wooden structure, there were just tombstones scattered throughout the woods.





Now I'm not entirely sure what is going on in this last one. When I took it, I didn't notice any bugs. Although, it is entirely possible that I could have missed one. Additionally, if you notice, it's in front of the leaf, which rules out a reflection from the stone. It could be a light, but there appears to be a motion trail behind it.
I mentioned in a previous post that I go on these explorations, not expecting to find anything, but instead just because I like exploring.With that being said, I do believe in ghosts, and those beliefs are based on first hand encounters. This however, is not one of those encounters. A vast majority of the time, when someone claims to have a picture of an "orb" it's really either a reflection, a bug or a light. The rest of the time, it's Photoshop. In the case, it's most likely a bug, despite what I do, or do not remember seeing.

  16. Unfortunately I don't know any good areas in the south. Back home in MA I used to visit an old sanatarium that got shut down earlier last century. It was a wicked experience for exploration nothing noteworthy ever happened except for surprising bums.
