Camera trapped hikers

I believe hikers are often better behaved around camera traps than other folks who wander the woods.

I don't have any data to support that statement, but these photos show folks who didn't even walk up and peer into the camera, as they often do. They would have to be blind to miss them.

It was the week of Christmas. That might have had something to do with it.

We pulled the cam on the trail where mother and son (or daughter) passed, but left the other one, which is an active game trail.

I hope I'm not pushing my luck.

Doesn't surprise me that a hiker would miss the camera. It's funny, though, just the same.

True. You're often just watching your feet, especially when keeping up with the pack. I prefer to mosy along like a ruminant.

Looks like you caught her pulling out her wedgie. How embarrassing. She must not have seen the camera.
