This story was a wonderful and comical experience.
A few years back I went to visit some friends in Houghton MI for a weekend. On Saturday night we went out to see the local haunting, a popular spot. If I remember correctly we went to what might have been a national park, there was a large path that took us through a field of tall grass.
After a few minutes of walking I would start to feel intensely frightened, would take two steps and feel fine. This happened two or three times. It was very unnerving, but we kept going. One person suggested that it may be residual feelings from other people who have come by.
I think it was a fifteen minute trip when we decided to stop. The sight its self was a simple. It was a white globe that was moving there was no tail while it moved and, from our distance, nothing that looked like it was man made. There was no pattern that I could see, it was graceful. It seemed peaceful.
After a while of watching the globe, we started talking about heading back to the house. When I looked down to see a figure that looked like a Romero zombie coming out of the ground! When it got closer I realized it was a very drunk girl who had decided to move in closer to the globe and was crawling up the steep incline we had decided to stop at. It was an odd way to end the night. We had a good laugh at that.
The legend I heard about the lights is about an old railway man who still walks his line after an accident. The trail runs along the line of an old track, but I do not remember if the track was still there or not. Either way it was an interesting time and one day I want to return.
I wish I could tell you exactly where it is, but I do not know the area well enough and it was out a ways from the town. Also, we were not doing any official ghost hunting, though one day I think I might want to go back and get closer.
I have terrible night vision from living in the city all my life.
