    The strange phenomena at the Driskill Hotel, Austin, including the odd sensation experienced by guests who stare at the third floor picture of a child holding flowers; Pecos Bill with his coyote family, his rattlesnake Shake (that served as his lasso) and his true love the catfish-riding Slue-Foot Sue (Neil Armstrong may have been the first MAN to set FOOT on the moon but Sue banged her HEAD on it many years earlier, after being thrown by Bill's appropriately named horse, Widow-Maker); the unexplained phenomena and spectres of the Hotel Lawrence, Dallas, including the ghost of a gambler; the three ghosts of the Hotel Galvez and Spa, Galveston, including one that leaves the scent of gardenias in a room; ghosts in all of the rooms (including one that still sometimes leaves tips for the maid) at Miss Molly's Hotel bed and breakfast, once a bordello, in Fort Worth; the emerald-headed serpent, a great deity that inhabits a crystal cave in the Gulf of Mexico but which, according to Native Americans, may be seen from the coast, when it ventures to the surface with a great display of light; and the sounds of happy children heard in the Hamilton Hotel, Laredo, even when no children are near, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Texas.

    Creepy and malevolent black eyed children (Black Eyed Kids or BEKs) in Abilene; phantoms of the Faust Hotel, New Braunfels, which include a black cat; the phantom of a former cleaner in a brown uniform and the ghostly sounds of children playing in the Rio Grande Plaza Hotel, Laredo; the lady in white who carries a cat in the Marriott Plaza Hotel in San Antonio; paranormal phenomena at the Tarpon Inn, Port Aransas, including a bathroom that sometimes has a pink glow; the ghost of a murdered call girl in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio; and the spectral cowboys who, in the hours before dawn, walk in the courtyard of the Y.O. Ranch Hotel, Kerrville, are more weird folklore associated with Texas.

    The groaning Enchanted Rock, said to be genuinely magical; the ghostly nun and the doppelgangers of staff who roam La Posada Hotel, on the site of a former convent, in Laredo; the Confederate soldier and the phantom boy nicknamed "Jimmy" who still roam Tremont House hotel in Galveston; the spirits of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, such as the shade of Sarah Morgan (who was killed by a student) in the biology building, the ghost of a bearded and stetsoned professor in Holden Hall, the phantom of a student in the underground tunnels (still trying to sneak into the girls' dormitories) and "George", the harmless spectre of the old President's House; the ghostly civil war soldiers of Patterson Road, Houston; appearances of the spiny goat-sucker, the chupacabra; the suicidal jumper who is said to still haunt his room at the Omni Austin Hotel; the winged, humanoid monsters of Littlefield who allegedly lived in the basement of two elderly spinsters; and the Lake Worth monster, a creature appearing as part man, part goat and part fish, are yet more strange folktales of Texas.
