When he was younger he was a trail ride boss. This often involved sitting around a campfire conversing with many different people. This allowed him to be in an environment that cultivated folklore.
When I heard this story it was a late summer night. That day a group of 15 friends had travelled to my cabin in the backwoods of Alberta. We were all gathered around a crackling fire in a circle. The moon was full and combined with the fire the light was giving off an eerie glow. The goal of the night was to scare the girls and all attention was focused on Tate as he began to tell his story.
Everyone in our group had grown up in rural southern Alberta. We all knew the area which would make Tate's story much more realistic for the group. Scary stories always seem to pop up in this group around the campfire. Our group had fifteen people and everyone was feeding off of the energy in the circle. All people in the circle were Mormon and a key part of this culture are camp outs. Campfire stories have been a staple of campouts for as long as anyone can remember. Naturally now whenever a group is gathered around a campfire they slip into story. Culture like this allows stories to be passed on to friends, family and down generational lines.
Horror, Story, Canada, Legend, White Lady, Scary
There is a Lady that lives in the area around Mountain View and she is called the White Haired Lady. She gets this name from her appearance; she is tall, thin with a sunken face. Her hair is pearly white and falls in wisps to the middle of her back. You can often see her driving late in the night on the highways between Cardston and Mountain View. She stands on the side of the road and acts like a hitch hiker. The driver now has two options, they can either pick her up or continue to drive by. When you pick her up she quietly gets in your car, along with her weird appearance this ominous feeling accompanies her. She doesn't talk much just points to where she wants you to go. Her destination is always the same field in the middle of nowhere. This is where it gets weird. Once she gets out of the car she drops to all fours and runs like a wild animal in to the field. Now if you don't pick her up is where you get the real reaction out of her. She once again drops to all fours and starts chasing you. Now you can try to speed away but on all fours she can catch up to a speeding car going over 60 miles per hour. Now no one knows where this lady lives, ranchers have ridden for hours checking their cows in the deep mountains. They have found her sitting in fields taking a nap or relaxing. She looks up at them and then takes off into the woods once again on all fours. This lady has yet to hurt anyone but she sticks around Mountain View for some reason. No one knows why and no one knows if anything could set her off. She is a mystery to all who have seen her and a legend to those who haven't.
