6 Places To Have A Paranormal Experience (PHOTOS)

Posted: 10/31/11 08:50 AM ET

Whether they're ghost hunters, investigators of the unexplained or just X-Files junkies getting their David Duchovny on, a surprising number of people believe in the possibility of ghosts, aliens, cryptids and other unexplained phenomena. After all, it only takes one UFO or Big Foot sighting to turn someone into a believer for life.

If you want to do a little more paranormal travel, these destinations are some of the top places to investigate or experience something from another world or dimension.

The Gifford Pinchot National Forest, surrounding Mt. St. Helens is home to many different species of wild creatures and creepy crawlies, none more useful for our purposes than Gigantopithecus canadensis--Bigfoot. This hairy homonoid is most often sighted in the forest around the Pacific Northwest and Mt. St. Helens is supposedly its home turf. Stories of cannabalistic wild men living around the mountain date back to the mid 1800s, so for many it's not a stretch to turn those stories into tales of Bigfoot.

Consider hiking through these pristine evergreens with a pork chop on a string for best results, and remember to keep that camera ready. Sasquatch seems to be getting quicker with age.
