5) Apache Death Cave

The battles between the Apache and Navajo Native America tribes is infamous. An attack on a Navajo encampment by Apache raiders left only 3 girls alive, who were taken prisoner. The Navajo leaders sought revenge, tracking the Apache raiders, but failed to find them. Another attack let them know the raiders were still in their vicinity, and they sent out a search party to find their enemies. Strangely, they noticed warm air coming up from the ground when they passed over a spot, and found a large underground cave where the Apache has been hiding. The Navajo tribe got their revenge, slaughtering every man in the cave once they learned that the three young prisoners had been killed. Apparently the site is now cursed, and it does have a rather spooky look to it. Visiting it is the only way to truly understand the mood this death has brought the cave.
