So up in Cedar Crest (a small mountain community) which is just a few minutes east of Albuquerque, right off the main highway is a little cemetery. I remember many years ago my sister asked someone about it and they said it was a Pet Cemetery. It was only a few years back when someone mentioned to me a relative of theirs being buried there that I realized it wasn’t a Pet Cemetery. During the nice months of the year we sometimes take Pooka up to Cedar Crest for hamburgers at Burger Boy, which is only a building away from the cemetery. We sit outside and eat and often I stare at that little cemetery and think that some day I will walk over there and have a look around, but I never did until yesterday.
It is a very small cemetery but it is kept up very well. No weeds covering the graves and they are always decorated with bright plastic flowers and other things. I assume that there is a caretaker that lives in the little house next to it, but maybe not.
I decided to not actually enter the cemetery because I had Pooka with me and if there was a caretaker they might possibly get angry about my dog maybe peeing on a grave. :) The Ramones Pet Cemetery kept playing in my mind and I sang along under my breath as we walked around. Most of the graves that I could see dated from the late 1950s – 1970s. Some were newer, but I didn’t see any older than that. I took some photos and then Pooka and I decided our adventure day was over and we would go home because she was getting very hot out in the sun.
Two of the photos I took have this misty type effect in only one area of the photo, which I thought was kind of strange. One of those photos also had two blue orbs in it.
The large full photos are here (that one also has the blue orbs) and here. I suppose someone could think that mistiness is due to a smudge on the lens, but the photos before and after those don’t have it and I didn’t clean the lens so it should have been it the photos I took after. Possibly it is something to do with the way the sunlight is hitting that area.
The only other thing I thought was strange while I was there (though not necessarily the least fortean) was this strange tombstone:
The full photo is here. I couldn’t read any of the other writing on the tombstone except Monster. Strange stone too, it was actually a stone with the middle part cut out of it and what seemed to be some sort of clearish film in the window (dirty glass maybe?). I am going to go back without Pooka next week so I can go inside and get a closer look.
Yesterday, Pooka (pictured above) and myself decided to do some paranormal investigating – just like Shaggy and Scooby. First we went to “haunted hill” where supposedly there is a cave where a man used to kill and dismember women. At night people report hearing voices, bodies being drug across the ground and sometimes they see a light which resembles a lantern in some cases, in others it is just an eerie red light. L.O.W.F.I.’s Andy Colvin visited haunted hill when he was here in Albuquerque and you can read about that here. There were actually quite a lot of people out hiking the trails for 3 pm on a work day, but no ghosts that we saw. We also did not see a cave or at least not what I would consider a cave. There was a strange bunch of rocks that were marked with white paint, not graffiti, just a large spot of white paint. Within those rocks was a small opening where you could imagine that someone could take shelter during a rain storm, but it wasn’t what I would call a cave.
I have been to haunted hill at night too, but I didn’t stay long and didn’t see any weird lights. However, being there during the day I looked for anything like light reflectors that might make someone think they are seeing a light and I didn’t see any of those either.
As for the story itself, I and nobody I know of that has ever looked into it has found any evidence of a serial murderer killing women there. Although, it does seem that this story has been around for a long time. I can remember my grandmother telling me as a child about a man that killed women there in the foothills as a warning not to get into cars with strangers.
If anyone is interested, Albuquerque Ghost Hunters did an investigation and picked up some EVPs, you can find out about that here. I don’t think that is the same “cave” that I photographed. I saw several similar type “caves” but assumed it was that one since it seemed to be marked so people would know.
After Pooka scared away all the ghosts by peeing on every little bush that we passed we decided to go somewhere else and headed up to Cedar Crest, along the Turquoise Trail, to a little tiny cemetery. More about that in part 2.

3 of my students and I saw what looked like a black bird way up in the sky but it was much too big and did not move like a bird. It seemed to hover in one place and then move. It kept doing these odd movements for about 10 minutes or so and there appeared 3 jets up in the same area. My students saw the black object decend straight down to the ground very quickly from very high above. That is what we saw. We are in the south area of santa fe NM

Phil Schneider, supposedly one of three people who survived the 1979 Dulce firefight between the large Greys, US intelligence and military at the Dulce underground base, was found dead on January 1996, due to what was said to be an execution style murder. He was found dead in his apartment with a piano wire wrapped around his neck. According to some sources, it appeared that he repeatedly suffered torture before he was finally killed. You can read his story here – The Mysterious Life and Death of Philip Schneider. There have been numerous questions surrounding Schneider, in particular his motives and state of mind. Seven months prior to his death, he stated the following during a lecture:
“To give you an overview of basically what I am, I started off and went through engineering school. Half of my schooling was in that field and I built up a reputation for being a geological engineer, as well as a structural engineer with both military and aerospace applications. I have helped build two main bases in the United States that have some significance as far as what is called the New World Order. The first base is the one at Dulce, New Mexico.”

About 9:05, ****** and I were sitting on the patio when we saw something strange in the sky (see attached photoshop rendering). It passed by roughly south to north. It was low in the sky (mountain tops visible above it). It was visible for probably less than a minute before disappearing beyond the neighbor’s trees. It made no sound. It was difficult to determine the size or altitude, but if it was about 3000′ AGL (common altitude for airliners passing over our house), it was bigger than (and traveling slower than) an airliner. I have to think it was low, because if it was higher, it would have been huge! It was very dimly illuminated. In fact, it was difficult to see if you looked straight at it (center field vision is not good at night). It almost looked like it wasn’t directly lighted, but might have been illuminated by reflection of the city lights. (Imagine the phosphorescent glow of a ship’s wake on the ocean at night.) It had no navigation lights. Our house is just north of the Tijeras arroyo, between Tramway & Juan Tabo. The patio faces east, with a good view of the south end of the Sandias. We spend a lot of evenings on the patio skygazing. It is common for us to see aircraft (airliners, helicopters, Ospreys), satellites, weather balloons and shooting stars. This wasn’t any of those.
