Lone Pine, California has only one road with a traffic light. Whitney Portal Road heads westward across Highway 395, traversing the Alabama Hills and onto Mount Whitney which is nine miles away. It is the tallest mountain in mainland United States. Like many routes that started out as trails they are witness to human traffic and tragedy, and inevitably tales of hauntings.
The setting is 1890s Nevada. A lonely miner turned rancher was murdered by his friends. He was dismembered, burned and buried so no one would be the wiser of what truly happened to him. The restless spirit of this man would not lie quietly, and not only was the heinous crime discovered, but the first woman to be legally executed in Nevada faced justice due to the revenge of the miner's ghost.
