As it turns out, it wasn't as abandoned as I thought it would be. There were plenty of people setting up for Halloween so unfortunately there were a few places that seemed interesting but were fenced off. I still managed to find a few places where there was enough of a gap for me to squeeze through (no easy feat mind you!). I didn't feel as creeped out as I thought I would though. This may be due to the fact that I knew that there were a group of people working on Halloween attractions less than 30 yard away from me.
The only true hair raising moment was when I was walking past the abandoned house to a small empty cage. I was far enough away from the workers where I couldn't hear them anymore but I could hear movement in the bushes around me. Reality struck that I was actually alone and there are LARGE cats that have been spotted in the mountains. I ran my hand over my knife which gave me an odd sense of comfort but I knew that maybe it would be best to return with a friend. Hopefully the next time I'm back the fences will be down and there will be more to explore!
