134 – Phantoms – Spirit Lake, ID

Play

Do you know about the phantoms of Spirit Lake, Idaho?

On episode 134 of the Travel Oddities Podcast, Harley and Brett confront the ghosts(plural) that are said to inhabit the beautiful waters of Spirit Lake.

Spirit Lake, ID is a logging town and we are fairly certain that is a Travel Oddities first.
Not only is this place picturesque with a scenic downtown, they have an activity for any outdoor enthusiast.

Like so many of the legends we discuss, this one starts with some spooky Native American legends. The Phantoms of Spirit Lake have their origin in these legends, and whether you are a believer or you just love the stories, this one has you covered.

What is the story behind the phantoms?

When is the best time of year to run into a phantom?

If you like your adrenaline spikes to originate from something a little more mundane, then you are going to love Silverwood Theme Park in Athol, Idaho. It is located in beautiful North Idaho, and has over 65 rides, slides, shows and attractions, including one that was voted best in the country by Travel Channel.

After your adventures in this town, you are going to need to refuel, and Messy’s Burgers is just the place to do that. Messy’s is a quick food restaurant in beautiful Spirit Lake, Idaho. Serving burgers, rippers (deep fried hotdogs), milkshake and floats.

Brett and Harley have not been able to come to a truce on the review front, so strap in, it gets really bleepy!

129 – Shunka Warakin – Ennis, MT

Play

On this week’s episode, Harley and Brett have to pretend to be qualified for dude-ranch life to explore the beautiful mountain town of Ennis, MT.

Ennis is nestled between three mountains with some of the best rivers in the country. It also has a cowboy charm that will have you dusting off your spurs and shining your six-shooter….or whatever actual cowboys do…we just see them on T.V.

We discuss the legend of the Shunka Warakin(just think giant, primitive, red-haired, crazy wolf). They have been spotted in Montana, Illinois, Nebraska, Idaho and Iowa.

What does the Ioway term,shhuhnkha Warahwalkin, mean according to Loren Coleman?

Where did the modern legend begin?

What is Ringdocus?

How many sheep would a shunka warakin eat in a year?

If you are tired of running from large wolf creatures…maybe you can have cute husky creatures pull you on a friendlier adventure. Spirit of the North Sled Dog Adventures is now on our bucket lists.

The Bear Trap Grille is a must if you are traveling to this little mountain town.
