Ghost sightings are often hard to believe, but one woman claims she saw something strange while recently visiting the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. 

In a photograph taken by tourist Kimberlee Kimberly, what appears to be a woman in a white gown can be be seen standing alone in a hotel window. 

"I took this at 9:03 PM and there was no one in the windows but when I looked back at picture she was in it," stated Kimberlee Kimberly who was in town visiting Colorado from Montgomery, Texas. "I took another picture at 9:04, less than a minute apart, and it's just windows and she is gone."

"Some of the employees at The Stanley said it's one of the best they have ever seen," added Kimberly. 

The Stanley Hotel is famous for its charm and history, located in Estes Park, just outside of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Shame on you for wasting print on trash like this. This is not some tabloid at the supermarket checkout but your sure trying to be.

Everybody loves a good ghost story and most of us take it tongue in check. But this was presented as real news. Just stop it. It's the 21st century.
