Cooper and Heather eyed Danielle.
“The ranger knows this is happening?” Heather asked.
“Yeah,” Danielle said. “Everybody who lives around here knows, but they won’t tell you until they’re sure you’re okay.”
“Why? Wouldn’t it be better to warn people?” Cooper asked.
“I’ll bet they’re afraid it will dry up the tourist trade,” Heather said.
Danielle stopped in her tracks and laughed.
“What?” Heather asked.
“That’s what I thought,” she said. “It’s not like that at all. They’re afraid that they’ll have a spook rush.”
“Spook rush?” Cooper asked, slight grin on his face. They started walking again.
“You know, like the gold rush. They don’t want to lose their lifestyle. This place would be flooded with tourists. It would just ruin the area.”
“Crap, I could see that,” Cooper said. “People always flock to places like that. Look at the Winchester House, and Roswell.”
“Yeah,” Danielle said.
