Technically, we didn't trespass...although we almost got murdered.

A week ago today, Yvonne and I were in a scary movie.

It all began during our quest to find pretty vineyards to photograph. I had never been to Napa before and Yvonne knew I would like it. Donna drove us there. Somehow, we ended up on a mountain. A very windy mountain. But there were vineyards there too. Who knew?

Yvonne spots an abandoned barn. Immediately, we are both intrigued. Trespassing is my guilty pleasure. After passing it, we convince Donna to take us back. There's a gate in front of it and a fence that is falling apart, but there is no "No Trespassing" sign, so technically we weren't doing anything illegal.

We climb through a broken part of the fence and walk a little closer. We immediately begin taking pictures. It looked like a scene from a movie!

But as we continued walking around, it began getting creepier and creepier. First, there were TONS of snake holes. That made us a little nervous...but to make matters worse, we started noticing the MASSIVE snake eggs. This place was definitely deserted.

Then, to make matters even worse, we found a noose. Yes, you heard me—a noose—an object used to murder people. Don't believe me? I have proof.

And near it was a metal thing sticking out from a tree to hang the noose on. How convenient.

Still, we were here for the adventure so we didn't escape after seeing all the bikes of the children who had been murdered or the piles of rocks under which they were buried. (We come up with superb stories, if I do say so myself!)

Still, one of the three building remained—the scariest one. A dirty white house(?) with doorways but no doors. We walk up close to it, cameras in hand. At first glance, it seemed safe enough. Yes, it was rundown, but nothing too horrible.

But then we noticed them—more piles. Definitely shaped liked body piles. With our hands lifted in picture taking mode, and our fingers on the shutter buttons, we were SO ready to take more pictures...until we heard it. The erie scary movie whisper of the wind. It blew through this haunted house causing a creak from the door that was non-existent. And we dashed off faster than we have probably ever ran before.

As we were running towards Donna's car off in the distance, another scary movie moment took place. My shoe fell off. "Ahh! My shoe!" I yelled, as I turned around and ran in the opposite direction to go get it. Yvonne, being the great friend that she is, risked her life and waited for me. I put my shoe back on and we ran to safety, panting.

This was definitely an adventure! All to see some vineyards...
At least we got to see them! :)
