ESTES PARK, Colo. — A man staying at one of America’s most famous haunted hotels may have photographed something supernatural during his visit.
Henry Yau, the public relations director for the Children’s Museum of Houston, was staying at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, with his wife for a weekend getaway, Fox News reports.
During his stay, Yau took photos around the hotel — which was the inspiration behind Stephen King’s “The Shining.”
While Yau was in the lobby, he used the panoramic feature on his iPhone to photograph the grand stairwell.
“I don’t like when people are in my shots, so when I took this photo, I had waited until the grand stairwell was cleared of people before taking the pic,” he told Fox News.
When he looked at the photo the next morning, that was when he noticed an eerie figure at the top of the stairs.
He posted the photo on social media with the caption, “By golly! I think I may have captured a #ghost at #StanleyHotel.”
“I honestly don’t know who this figure could be,” Yau told Fox News. “When I was there, I took a historic tour and they said all ghosts who roam there are happy ghosts. So I’m hoping this one was a happy one.”
Built in 1909, the hotel hosts different ghost tours after gaining a reputation for being haunted in the 1970s.
After Yau’s visit, he says he believes the historic hotel is definitely haunted.
