We are on our way back from a short trip to Tunica Mississippi for some birding and gambling. Birding absolutely sucked and gambling wasn’t that much better. Tunica has gone way down since our last visit there over a decade ago. There were at least 3 or 4 casinos completely closed down and the ones remaining are definitely on the decline. We won’t be planning a return visit. We hit the Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge in hopes of getting another Bobcat or finding that Cougar we located last time, but missed getting a picture of – struck out on both counts and a lot of the refuge was closed for migration or hunting. Luckily we had a fun time at the Memphis Zoo so it wasn’t a total waste. The good news is I can finish the Halloween post I started from the casino a few nights back,. Yep, gonna take you on the rest of the trail so turn off all the lights and lock the doors – it’s the spooking hour.
Let’s start where we left off last time which brings us to the smoldering groundbreaker. Ron gave me this item as a gift last year. It jerks randomly while emitting wailing sounds and lights up. It is set up for a fogger to enhance the effects, but we didn’t have one to spare this year – picked up a couple more at end of season sales this year, so look for that addition next year.
Think I bought this hanging lady at last year’s clearance sale,. She lights up and has eerie sayings implying it was your fault she was left hanging on that tree. A lot of people missed this particular decoration this year due to it being somewhat hidden on a side of the tree.,
Hit the jump to see more sights from this year’s Haunted Trail of Tears.
