A pile of scary, ghostly horrors in a city park!

Creepy skulls await visitors near entrance to The Haunted Trail for the approaching Halloween season.

Is it nearly Autumn? That means Halloween is quickly approaching! And so are the usual nightmarish horrors!

I saw during a walk through Balboa Park’s west end that The Haunted Trail is under construction. Around Halloween, the annual outdoor “haunted house” scares even the bravest living residents of San Diego. Passing through the dark, ghostly trees at night might be scary enough, but imagine being surrounded by legions of hellish ghouls and flesh-eating zombies!

I conquered my own fear and poked my camera over a fence to record the coming terror…

What would Halloween be without a pumpkin head. And some ghouls, ghosts, specters and whatnot.

That's one big pile of terribly mangled bodies. It almost looks like what happens during a fumble in football.

I thought one grim reaper was quite enough, thank you.

And to top it all off, a good old spooky demon with horns. October must be approaching!
