Meant to be broken
On Friday's picnic, FireAnt, BusyLifeAlsoWrites, and I hiked first along a trail with a nice path, even a handrail. But then we came to signs with ominous warnings: "Danger! Stay on the path!" Of course, we ignored the signs and climbed over the fence. Those signs have been there for years, but the waterfall has been there even longer. And who in their right mind is going to pay attention to words on a sign when they've got the sound of a waterfall in their ears? The paths that lead down to the creek at the bottom are still navigable, even if the state doesn't want us to use them. We looked around hopefully, to see if some cops would come to arrest us — what great blog fodder that would be! But sadly, no one showed up with handcuffs and we hiked down into the valley without any excitement.
That's FireAnt in the photo, blatantly breaking the rules.
