Ordinarily a walk through the forest, even one with few views, has some value ... not when you run into trail ogres who yell at you and your dog, and thus ruin your day. We didn't exactly make it to the summit, but it was close enough. Just knowing these mean people were on the same trail was enough to send us scurrying back.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
--Peter Gibbons (Office Space)
