Permission To Be At Gretchen's Lock After Dark

I spent some time finding out exactly what you have to do to get permission to be at Gretchen's Lock, as well as other parts of Beaver Creek State Park, after dark.  I asked a few questions and Todd Metz, Asst. Park Manager, was kind enough to get back to me about it.  The following is the email I sent and his response.

Thank you Mr. Metz. I appreciate that you took the time to send this. I have been trying since March to contact someone about it with no success and my busy season is here now so I had to do something. On May 8 when my first Gretchen's Tour was held, Park Rangers went down and locked the gates to the park an hour before it started. When that happened I assumed it was because I was having an event down there and didn't have any one's permission to do it. Only I couldn't get a hold of anyone to get it.
There is also some confusion as to the rules about being in the park after dark. I would like to post the correct information on my blog so there are no misunderstandings.

1. Do you have to have written permission to be in the park after dark?
2. As long as you do not drive your vehicle inside the park, but walk, you can go in anytime, no permission necessary? Is that true?
3. Does the written permission include The Pioneer Village area of Beaver Creek State Park as well?

There are a lot of people going down there on a nightly basis and any information I can get out there will help to keep the area safe and organized.
Thank you again for your time.
Kindest Regards,

Now, here is his response.

You do have to have written permission for be in the park after hours.
If you park outside the gate, you are less likely to be asked to leave or have the chance of your vehicle being locked in.
The written permission does include the pioneer village.
Please keep this in mind: The rangers at anytime reserve the right to ask anyone to leave at anytime for any reason if they feel it necessary. This is even the case if you have the after hours form.
If you have anymore questions, please contact me.

So, now you know

An interesting picture from Georgetown Cemetery

First, I hate putting things on my blog and claiming they are something.  I have certain things on here that I won't even argue about which I feel have something paranormal about them, and you will find them at the bottom of the blog.  (Keep scrolling.  You will find them eventually.)
It is very rare to really get something.  In the picture above, you see a cemetery stone, and this is not what I am debating.  It is the double image of it, above it.  Within that image you see the face of a man.  This is something that happens a lot in cemeteries, and is also one of the reasons I don't listen to what other so called authorities give you as an explanation.  (dust, or bugs, blah blah blah)
I have thrown out pictures similar to this because,  I reasoned,  it is matrixing or just a double image.  But the face looking back has always been different.  Ladies have longer hair.  Men have shorter.  Sometimes it is a profile, while others are staring you full in the face.   The 4 Ghosts picture below is a perfect example of why I look everything over carefully and consider everything I see just as carefully.  I wish I had back some of the things I got rid of listening to what others believe instead of studying it for myself.  I will never make that mistake again.  Is that an apparition in the picture above?  I don't know. I am not going to say it is for that reason.  But, I am also not going to tell you it isn't.
