But last weekend I decided to do a classic hiking loop that I hadn't visited in a long time, despite knowing I'd be elbowing my way through crowds most of the day. I mostly managed to curb the symptoms of my antisocial tendencies, so nobody got shoved over a cliff and no dogs were bitten. But I digress... This thread is for collecting the most stunning questions you've been asked on a trail, such as:
Hiker #1: "Are those edible?" --after seeing me eating some cranberries from the side of the trail
Hiker #2: "What's that building down there?"
Me: "Where? Closer than the pond, or farther?"
Hiker #2: "Oh, a pond... never mind"
Hiker #3: "Which way's the summit?" -- at a junction where one trail went up for a long way, and another went down for a long way.
