A popular ghost story in Brigard tells of a lost traveler who sees a blue light in the distance on a moonless night. Logically thinking the light is marking shelter, he runs for it, but the light never grows any nearer. Gradually, he finds himself lost in an ancient swamp. For a moment, he stops and thinks of turning back and trying to find the road. But then he glimpses the light through the trees and decides to make one last run for it. Suddenly, the swamp opens up around him, and he finds himself teetering on the edge of a cliff, the light gone. Before he can catch his balance, a gust of wind springs up from behind him and sends him falling to his death.
