Two ‘ghosts’ photographed at hotel which inspired movie The Shining

Visitors to the hotel which inspired Stephen King movie The Shining captured a mysterious photo which appears to show two “ghosts”.

The Mausling family, from Aurora, Colorado, took the picture as they took part in a spirit tour at the famous Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, last month.

The photo, taken by dad John ‘Jay’ Mausling, showed the people in their group gathered on a landing part-way up the hotel’s staircase.

But it also captured what looks like two other “apparitions”, including one of a small girl walking up the stairs and another on the upper stairwell walking away from the people on the tour.

Here’s the photo that John took in full:

John and wife Jessica Martinez-Mausling said that when the photo was taken there were only two people on the stairs, the tour guide and a woman who was taking a picture with her cellphone.

They also said there were no young girls on their tour.

They told the Huffington Post: “At first we tried to be logical and think we somehow missed her so we asked our kids, their girlfriends and our friend if they remembered seeing a little girl. Nobody did. We do not remember seeing anything on the stairs when we took the picture.”

Have you taken any photos like this? Let us know!
