Bastyr students, staff and faculty dressed up in their finest “ghoulery” to run the 13th annual Haunted Trails this October. They created a frightful forest creeping with ghosts, goblins and other scary sorts, along with a "Hades Labyrinth," a Circus of Horrors and a spooky cemetery. For younger kids, the Student Village turned into a trick-or-treating wonderland. Nutrition students also cooked up treats to keep fright-seekers fed and ready for more fun.

The event is a fundraiser for the University’s study-abroad programs, including the month-long China externship for acupuncture and Oriental medicine students to study and work at two of the country's most prestigious medical schools, Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Haunted Trails is one of the largest and most popular scarefests in the area. Have a look for yourself in the slideshow to the right.

Monster-sized thanks to naturopathic medicine and acupuncture student Jacqueline Blakely for the photos.
