    The ghost who still makes phone calls from Room 1007 of the Paso Robles Hotel, San Francisco; cowboys still searching for their gold in Rios Canyon, San Diego; San Diego's haunted Horton Grand Hotel; the ghostly couple who haunt the Marriott Anaheim Fairfield Inn, Anaheim; the spirit of schoolteacher Miss Mary Lake in Room 410 of the Queen Anne Hotel in San Francisco, which was once a girls' school; the blue, brain-like ETs of Palos Verdes; the male phantom of San Diego's luxurious US Grant Hotel; and the haunted parking garage and eighteenth floor lounge of the Los Angeles Airport Marriott, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of California.

    The reputedly haunted Room 217 of the Marriott Hotel, Long Beach; the many hauntings of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, which include a Lady in White in the reception area, children playing in the swimming pool, a man killed in the engine room and the mystery of room B340; Tahoe Tessie, Lake Tahoe's answer to Lake Champlain's Champ and to Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster; the haunted fourth floor window and other mysteries at the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles; the little phantom girl who knocks on the door of Room 42 and the spectral madame of Room 33 who are among the ghosts of the San Remo Hotel, San Francisco; the spectral prisoners of Alcatraz; the many ghosts of Elysian Park, Los Angeles, including a headless hound and a Lady in White; and the ghostly sailors of the aircraft carrier USS Hornet in Alameda, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in California.

    The spectral white deer of San Diego's Presidio Park; Kabar, Rudolf Valentino's Great Dane, who still lollops about the Los Angeles Pet Cemetery; the wraiths of Camp Comfort County Park, which include a phantom horsewoman, a charred man, a headless man riding a motor bike, a bloody bride and a demonic hound that watches over the tomb of a vampire; the ghost of Claudia in the Mansions Hotel, San Francisco; the Mennonite Lady in White of Adelaida Cemetery, who on Friday nights puts flowers on the grave of a child; the phantom policeman of Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, who hands out real but not legal speeding tickets; the reputedly haunted Renaissance Los Angeles Airport hotel, part of the Marriott chain; and the sirens, serpents and flying monsters that once inhabited Santa Barbara Island and which may, perhaps, be reawakened one day, are more weird folklore associated with California.

    The beautiful but sad Amanda, said to haunt Room 325 of the Vagabond Motel, San Diego; Santa Paula's horned, white and hairy anthropoid, the Billiwhack Monster; the giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe, claimed as employees by the Red River Lumber Company of Westwood; the spirits of Sacramento City Cemetery, including a little girl and a pit bull terrier; the bigfoot or sasquatch of the northern forests; the spectral woman who still supervises the Phoenix Inn oriental restaurant in Alhambra; the spirits of Kate Morgan, a little boy and girl, the mistress of a millionaire, a Victorian lady who likes to dance and a former caretaker in San Diego's famous Hotel Del Coronado (used in the movie Some Like it Hot and remarkable for its Victorian wooden architecture); the haunted swimming pool of Ramona Convent Secondary School in Alhambra, where bathers have their legs grabbed by unseen hands (the nun in white, in the library, is more harmless); and the ghostly barefoot woman of Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, are yet more strange folktales of California.
