Transept Trail, Grand Canyon

Park rangers and visitors have reported seeing the Grand Canyon’s “Wailing Woman” who’s said to haunt the North Rim. According to legend, the woman committed suicide in the nearby lodge during the 1920s after learning that her husband and son had died in a hiking accident. Dressed in a white dress printed with blue flowers, she floats along the Transept Trail between the lodge and the campground on stormy nights, crying and moaning over the family she lost to the canyon.
