Legends, Scary Stories, Myths, Ghosts, Monsters and Folklore in Michigan
The stone monster slain by Hiawatha, evidenced by large rocks on the eastern side of Grand Traverse Bay; the phantom woman in the garden of Stafford's Perry Hotel, Petoskey; the ghosts of a man, a woman and a girl in the Blue Pelican Inn (formerly Murphy's Lamplight Inn) in Central Lake; tales of giant lumberjack Paul Bunyan and his blue ox Babe (Oscoda is his official home, as the first Paul Bunyan story was published there but Ossineke has statues of Paul and Babe and the claims of other towns are disputed by Manistique, which also has a statue of Paul); the Melon Heads (melonheads) of Felt Mansion, similar to those of Connecticut and, I believe, the source of the Catskill gnomes legend involving Rip van Winkle and Hendrik Hudson; the slender, man-eating hidebehind, a "fearsome critter" indeed, which can conceal itself behind any tree but which, unlike pink elephants, can be avoided by drinking alcoholic beverages; and giant, lupine waheelas, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Michigan.
The spirit of Amelia Earhart, said to haunt the Landmark Inn in Marquette; the ghost of Samuel Graczyk, a lumberman accidentally killed on the day of his wedding, at Deadman's Hill Scenic Overlook in Mackinaw State Forest; the shampoo using and TV remote hiding ghost that haunts Wayne's Red Apple Restaurant and Inn in Wayne (the spectre is of a man allegedly murdered by a maid because he didn't give her a tip, so GIVE THE MAID A TIP); paranormal phenomena in the Henry hotel (formerly the Ritz Carlton) in Dearborn; the Dogman, encountered since the nineteenth century; the werewolves (loups-garous / loup-garous) that plagued Detroit when it was a French community and which might, one day, be reawakened (could a waheela be mistaken for a werewolf - or vice versa?); and strange occurrences in the Fenton Hotel, Fenton, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Michigan.
Some people say that they have no desire to visit America because they have seen so much of it on TV and in the movies. However, there is no substitute for the real thing. Being familiar with the USA is as important in the modern Grand Tour as familiarity with Europe. Las Vegas, Phoenix, St Louis, Chicago, Boston, Albuquerque, Skagway, Santa Fe, Houston, Seattle, Sitka, Detroit, Philadelphia, Fairbanks, New Orleans, Honolulu, Washington DC, Atlanta, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Anchorage, Savannah, Juneau, Minneapolis, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, Indianapolis, Lake Tahoe, Salt Lake City, Sacramento, Corpus Christi, San Diego, Kansas City, Miami, New York and Atlantic City are among the most famous cities in the USA. Other American mainland sites that should not be missed if a visitor to America, or an American for that matter, is to be regarded as well travelled, include The Florida Keys, Niagara Falls, Yosemite National Park, Mount McKinley and fabulous wildlife in Denali National Park, Native American nations such as the Navajo and the Hopi, the Ozarks, Glacier Bay National Park, Bryce Canyon, Marvellous scenery and sea life in Kenai Fjords National Park, Yellowstone National Park, the Everglades, Mount Rainier National Park, the plantations and bayous of the Mississippi Delta, the Appalachians, the beach at Waikiki in Hawaii, Hawaiian volcanoes such as Mauna Loa, the Okefenokee Swamp, rodeos, the Disney resorts, the Arctic wilderness of Alaska, the Adirondacks, Mount Rushmore, the wild west town of Tombstone, Route 66, the Grand Canyon and the California coastline.
The United States of America are so enormous that even most Americans cannot "know" all of their own country. Even visiting every state would be a major undertaking. It is possible, however, to visit the iconic places known all over the world, especially through Hollywood movies. We at camelopard.com wish you a pleasant journey in the USA.
