    Driving east to west and back and forth on State Road 60, I’ve had the opportunity to drive through Lake Wales, Florida, on occasion. When doing so, I’ve frequently stopped at Spook Hill, a popular gravity hill located on a significant range of sand and limestone hills. When parked in neutral “on the white line,” your car will appear to “roll up” the spooky hill while actually moving in reverse. More about the story than the actual experience, my kids and their friends enjoy it. Not something I would drive out of my way to visit, Spook Hills is a fun 30 or so minute distraction while driving through Lake Wales. An off-beat and fun attraction, it’s free, you can take a few photos, and the kids will talk about it for hours. I often find myself riding the white line 3 or 4 times for the benefit of the kids. Spook Hill is located directly across the street from Spook Hill Elementary School, which conveniently adopted “Casper the Friendly Ghost” as their school mascot. In this day and age of “political correctness,” I’m surprised no one has forced a name change of this attraction. /s/ William E. Lewis Jr. Vero Beach, Florida
