quote:The only real drama
I just can't believe how mentally unprepared some people can be. Not having a mental picture of the area (not carrying a map?), not being able to figure out the signs that are posted at every trail jct., where they came from and where they're headed, or the instructions you gave them! And just not having a clue about how to read the lay of the land or even the common sense to clue in to "water flows downhill" and to follow the easy valley trail back to Tak Falls. Good thing it was summertime otherwise they could have put their lives at risk and maybe wasted the time of a lot of good people in a SAR effort...

Anyways, glad you could help them out and that you enjoyed a superb outing!
