Sara Cook was married at La Posada, this is Sara in the ROSEROOM of La Posada in 2016. Sara was married on a Sunday and on Saturday she had me guide her wedding party, in two large groups through Santa Fe on a GHOST AND HISTORY TOURS. Below is her and her group the first tour on safari in Santa Fe.
Below: Tour guide Allan and BELL CAPTAIN RICHARD of LA POSADA---the staff is very good to Allan's tour groups, on some tours we end our trek at the LA POSADA BAR. Hisotyr & paranormal at La Posada.
Below are some GHOST-PHOTOS taken on Allan's private tours.
Here is the data concerning what these shots captured----
On May 14, 1896, Julia Shuster Staab, died (Murder-Mayhem) in her mansion. The deed was done in her private quarters: bedroom-bathroom-parlor area. Her heirs, eventually sold the mansion, since 1932 the grand property has housed a first rate-resort hotel. For over a century Julia's shade has been seen by Santa Feans passing by the mansion or by the resort's guests and employees.
Julia has appeared in many forms, be it a globular ball of energy or the classic standard misty form.

ABOVE---a picture of Julia, isn't she pretty! I always had problems with this portrait---What kind of problems? I had my doubts that this was Julia----I was later told by some people -- a FEW shadow chasers & old Santa Feans--that this portrait is that of Julia's niece, who was a near duplicate of Julia. But through the decades--- resort employees were adamant that this portrait was of Julia…. The only easy conclusion that I could come to about this painting is that whoever this woman was-- be it Julia or a niece or LADY X--- this lady was very striking.
But I was still a DOUBTING THOMAS---the idea that the original portrait of Julia was smoke damaged by way of a fire that swept through the mansion-- and that Julia's daughter or niece modeled for their middle aged mother or aunty (JULIA_ - --did sound logical--- - but it just did not feel right to me. But I finally stopped expressing my doubts--- WHY? --Because through the decades--- on many different occasions the resorts management teams--stated FIRMLY--- to me-- that the portrait is that of Julia--- END OF LINE! IT IS JULIA THEY ALL CHIMED IN THROUGH THE DECADES! Eventually it dawned on me, that if the chiefs of La Posada say that it the portrait is Julia--- then maybe I should put my stubbornness & skepticism-- on ice… because the high sheriffs who run this resort would know better than I, by way of in-mansion documents. SO I finally accepted the idea that this portrait -- is a touch up from the smoke of-- Julia's original portrait that was slightly damaged in a fire.---------------------------------------------------
