A couple of months ago, this woman had a terrifying experience on the infamous Donner Pass in Truckee, California.

Donner Pass, well-known for the horrific Donner Party incident during the winter of 1846 to 1847, is considered to be haunted due to the years of violent, tragic deaths that have occurred there.

She grew up in Reno, Nevada, and went to Truckee countless times because the cities are so close. Up until recently, she had never encountered anything out of the ordinary on the Donner Pass.

Over the holidays, she and her fiancé celebrated Christmas with his family in Northern California. At 6:30 p.m., they left her in-laws’ house to begin their five-hour drive back home.

They stopped at a gas station in Yuba City, and she didn’t use the bathroom there. Later, she wished she had because she had to go to the bathroom, and all of the other gas stations on their drive were closed for Christmas.

At around 10:30 p.m. or 11 p.m., they reached Donner Pass, and she couldn’t hold it anymore. She thought that the closest rest stop was toward the bottom of the mountain pass, in Arco, but luckily, there was a rest stop at the top, so she didn’t have to wait as long as she’d originally thought.

It was a bit strange to her because since she’d driven on Donner Pass many times, she thought she would have remembered seeing this rest stop before.

From the moment that she and her fiancé stopped here, she was anxious. In the past, she traveled to Truckee for paranormal investigations, but she never felt this way before.

It was clear that she was in fight or flight mode, and it was tough to shake the nerves, but she had to go to the bathroom so badly that she needed to push her fears aside for the time being.
