One upon a time way back when my great grandfather and his buddies went trapping out to Little River, they would stay at a log cabin for weeks at a time to get furs for sale so they can feed their families. They would leave early in the morning and not return until late at night. Every night around the same time they would see a light shining on the other side of the river. All the men were so curious as to what it was or who was over there. So one night they decided to go and see what it was. As they were moving closer to the shore the light moved faster and they could hear some strange noises. But when they stopped their boat, the light came toward them really fast and there was a scary laughter and then the light disappeared. My Great Grandfather and his buddies were so scared that they started their boat and returned back to their cabin.

Up until this day they could still see the light every night at the same time but they still don't know what it is. My Great Grandfather always remembers how scared this really made him and thinks it is a ghost from the past who doesn't want to be disturbed.
