Did this bear’s look in a Colorado resort foyer make for a spooky sight?
The animal final week discovered its manner into the Stanley Lodge — which as soon as impressed Stephen King to write down “The Shining,” Fox 31 reported.
The resort’s vp, Reed Rowley, advised the station that the incident unfolded early Thursday morning.
A entrance desk supervisor captured video of the romp, which occurred as 300 friends had been sleeping, the station studies.
“Late night time customer from the wildside visits our resort foyer. We’ll make an exception to the rule about leaping on the furnishings,” the resort wrote on Fb Thursday.
The bear apparently found out learn how to pry open the foyer door, the report stated, including that nothing was broken.
King recalled spending one night time on the Estes Park resort together with his spouse, Tabitha.

“We had been the one friends because it turned out; the next day they had been going to shut the place down for the winter,” the writer wrote on his web site, describing their September 1974 keep. “Wandering by way of its corridors, I believed that it appeared the right—possibly the archetypical—setting for a ghost story.”
King added, “That night time I dreamed of my three-year-old son operating by way of the corridors, wanting again over his shoulder, eyes broad, screaming. He was being chased by a fire-hose. I awoke with an incredible jerk, sweating throughout, inside an inch of falling away from bed.”

He continued, “I received up, lit a cigarette, sat within the chair searching the window on the Rockies, and by the point the cigarette was achieved, I had the bones of the e-book firmly set in my thoughts.”
“The Shining” was later revealed in 1977.
Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall later starred in a 1980 big-screen adaptation directed by Stanley Kubrick. It wasn’t shot on the resort.
