    Default Unknown stumbles on a special point of interest

    From Unknown's March 11 entry:

    "Climbed Brushy Mountain (a good climb) and when I got to the top I was a bit winded. The weather was in the 40's and the winds were pretty strong. Right when I was congratulating myself on getting to the top, I made a right around a bend in the trail. There, less than 20 feet off the trail, was a naked couple in the "heat of passion". I kid you not - for real. They looked at me and I kept on hiking - what else was I supposed to do: take a picture of them? They were laying on a blanket. I guess I could have told them that a Thermarest would be more comfortable. The thing that surprised me most was that the weather was so cold - why would they be doing that there?"

    John B that happened to me also. Me and my buddies were hiking in Golden Gate Canyon and we came around a bend and a couple were going at it. We just stopped for a second and kinda laughed and kept hiking. One of my buddies had a kind word to say to guy as we hiked by. He just smiled and we just kept hiking. We had a good story that night.

    It sounds like you had a run-in with the dreaded double-humped red-breasted Dayhiker, not such a rare bird in these parts. Dayhikers are a peculiar sort, progeny of the blue jean, the daypack and the close proximity of a car. But stupid me, I'm ASSUMING they were dayhikers. If they were backpackers, I'll have to reformulate my judgments.

    I agree with your assessment Tipi. If they were backpackers they would have used the Thermarest.
    If you don't make waves, it means you ain't paddling
