Dark Phantoms of Robb Canyon - Reno, Nevada

About 15 miles north of Lake Tahoe, just west of Reno, Nevada the is a small canyon that runs to the north and south called Robb Canyon.  A serene, beautiful valley that was a haven to get away to.  That all changed in the early 70's when someone exploring the canyon made a gruesome discovery.

A hiker exploring Robb Canyon discovered what was thought to be human remains partially sticking out of the dry desert soil.  When the police arrived, the unearthed the body of a woman and three men that appeared to be transients or homeless.

It is thought that the spirits of these souls lost in this desert canyon have not gone.  Over the years since the discovery many claim to hear strange blood curdling screams coming from Robb Canyon.  Many exploring the canyon have seen what are known as shadow people.  Dark human like figures that are not people, but some sort of dark phantoms from the after world.  


Many exploring the canyon at night, never make it very far as they are overcome by a feeling of dread and fear.   They end up leaving not long after darkness falls.  There have been reports by some who claim that they have been held down by some unseen force.
