31 Days of Halloween Day 3 – Glastenbury Mountain

31

Only 28 days until Halloween!

Throughout the month of October I’ll be posting once a day with something to get you into the Halloween spirit, including movie and book reviews, real haunted places, occult topics and more. Come back each day and join in the fun!

There are plenty of weird places in the world, including Glastenbury Mountain in southwestern Vermont. The area has been called Bennington Triangle, at least in part because it’s been the site of several disappearances. Some people think that hte area is haunted, others believe it’s a favorite destination for extraterrestrials – the theories abound.

Author Joseph A. Citro came up with one of the craziest theories about the missing people in the Glastenbury Mountain region of Vermont. He claims that the mountain is an evil place, one that was avoided by the Native Americans because of its twisted nature.

Five missing persons cases have triggered all kinds of speculation about what happened to them. Only one body has been recovered, but the decay was so extensive that supposedly it rendered an autopsy inconclusive.

While it might not seem that weird to have multiple disappearances in an area, because that happens in a lot of places, especially in mountainous areas. Add to that the fact that Glastenbury Mountain has been the site of many paranormal events, such as repeated UFO, ghost lights and Bigfoot sightings. Hikers have also reported hearing unexplained sounds. People who lived in the region have said that “wild men” roam around in the woods. There have been other areas in the world that are so-called paranormal magnets, and missing persons is a consistent theme in those regions.

The most out-there theory that Citro came up with has to do with a man-eating rock. I am not making this up, I swear. Supposedly, when a person stands on it, they begin sinking into the thing and are “eaten.”

Today, the town of Glastenbury is virtually deserted, only adding to the mysterious feeling that surrounds the moutain.

What do you think of Glastenbury? Have you ever been there? Is there a haunted mountain by where you live?
