PHFATMAN'S PEAK

One time I saw a group of men try to exorcise the demons out of someone on the hill there. I was just walking around and looking for cool stuff to shoot when I heard them chanting and singing... I ended up almost part of the ceremony but the sun dipped a little too quickly for my liking...
