Some trails are not all they are said to be

Hikers can not always trust the trail descriptions and stories

Here be dragons

Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt,

Hiking is big business in many places and for hikers it can sometimes be hard to tell how much is true and how much is just part of some writer’s or local tourist office’s imagination

In the old days map-makers used to write “here be dragons” ( Wikipedia link ) on the maps to make explorers aware that they were approaching the edge of reality.

Maybe it is a bit the same with some of the trail descriptions of today…

Sometimes reality does not quite match the expectations – Drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt
