Capturing real evidence of a haunting and spirit activity is difficult. For the most part, successful investigating requires patience, an open mind, common sense, and the ability to use a few simple pieces of equipment.
Specifically, during investigations, I use a digital camera, a video camera with a filter, and both a spirit box and digital recorder. In fact, in similar posts, listen to more examples EVPs and ghost box clips I’ve gathered over the years.
See more about how to use equipment and obtain ghost images in our How to Hunt Ghosts course featured at the bottom of this post.

Haunted St. James Hotel in Cimarron, New Mexico
The St. James Hotel started building in 1872 by Henry Lambert one-time chef to Abraham Lincoln. Of note, The St. James Hotel was originally called The Lambert Inn. It had a saloon, restaurant, and 43 rooms. Wild West style murders there were a known fact. In particular, at least 26 killings are attributed to the infamous hotel. Specifically, among the Wild West notorious luminaries to stay at the St. James: Wyatt and Morgan Earp, Doc Holliday, Pat Garet, Billy the Kid, Annie Oakley, Clay Allison, Black Jack Ketchum, and Buffalo Bill Cody.
In this series of digital shots, I called out for Mary Lambert, the wife of the original owner, to appear. Amazingly, she’s been witnessed many times at the top of these stairs. I took about 10 rapid successive shots. Significantly, the temperature was moderate. Moreover, no breath or any condensation impacted the photos to explain the mist.
