Never Normal - Hidden Bricks in Fargher Lake
A Trip to Yacolt... The"Haunted Valley".
The "Little Witches" and Yacolt's Shared Madness.
One of the three men said he was haunted by a spirit that often spoke to him, and that he was followed by something he called "Little Witches." Could this be fae activity? Another resident said he had a vision of oil on his property, and he was also being bothered by the same “little witches" that were compelling him to keep digging for it.
Finally, there's a third account of a man that was taken to a nearby mental asylum, although details of what his issues exactly were are unknown. Rotschy also noticed that a larger number of people in the area had been stricken with cancer, for which there was no explanation, and he definitely seemed to feel that the town was under some sort of curse. If visions of witches and oily substances still weren't enough, the town’s bad luck around the turn of the century expanded past insanity and disease to the worst fire in Washington's history, prior to the Shitshow that was 2020.

Hidden struggled with every business venture except making bricks with the Hidden Brick Company.
One car, an old Burlington Northern car identified by the ghost marks left on the side, was truly unsettling. The the energy felt just so overwhelmingly sad here. Whether its due to the fire, or due to the track not being used for so long is unclear, but Janet seems to believe the entire town is haunted due to the ramifications of the fire.
Welcome to Fargher Lake - "Never Normal."
The employees there didn't know why Fargher Lake is called "Never Normal Since 1921." She said she assumed it was just because they are "redneck town" but advised the shirts were available at the Mercantile across the street and they would likely know why not being normal is a big deal there. We had no idea that the REAL PRIZE was just behind the Mercantile, back by the windmill that is on all of the merchandise that the store sells...
