October 25, 2009 (Vallecito) – Looking for a chilling Halloween adventure? Paranormalist/ historian Charles Spratley will lead visitors on a ghostly tour of the reportedly haunted Vallecito Stage Station and stagecoach route on October 31st, telling true tales of the colorful characters whose ghostly apparitions are rumored to roam the desert landscape along what was known in the 1850s as the Devil’s Highway.
Choose from an evening program with chuckwagon-style dinner, or for the brave at heart, an overnight campout (gear provided), or opt for lodging in Borrego Springs. The Anza-Borrego desert has claimed hundreds of lives--and what the desert spared, the hand of man sometimes took in strife or the murderous pursuit of gold. By campfire, hear tales of spirits said to inhabit the station (including the forlorn Lady in White) and hear stories of their untimely demise.
