Lots of bones, skeletons, rotting cougar kills (ewwwww...we smelled it all night, it was on a rock in the river)
Crystals in the North Cascades.
A brand new set of pack towels by Cascade Designs hanging in the trees. The people must have forgotten it. My gain, their loss ;-)
A loaded pack at a lake in early May. It looked like it had been there all winter. I am figuring they left it, and didn't come back for it. Still, it was odd and didn't give me a good feeling. I didn't touch it.
Worst find ever? Oh yeah, my friend Dicentra still gets ribbed about this one:
We were hiking in 2003 in the Olympics, she was a NP ranger then for the Olympics. The night before there had been a group of teens backpacking near us (boombox and pot included). One of them was this huge fat guy who sweated constantly. They left in the morning. As we were walking out she saw a huge white t-shirt on the side of the trail. In full LNT rant mode she stomped over with me screaming "don't touch it!". Oh yeah, she picked it up. The fat guy? He had taken the biggest dump I have ever seen and used his shirt as TP.
I still laugh over that. Hehheh. And no, it stayed there ;-)
