Summary
Hansen documents stories that describe visits to frightening places associated with urban legends in the areas surrounding Salt Lake City, Utah. He explains that most legend trips were made when the informants were in high school. He describes patterns that suggest gender roles among legend trippers, for example, that males are usually the ones who suggest making a legend trip. He explains that some people go on legend trips to either validate or discredit an urban legend, and that others go simply for entertainment. This project includes two photographs of legend trip sites
