I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

The end of the pond

The boat stopped near the far end of the fjord so a group of hikers could get off and start a three-day hike out through the park.

Though it was a little bit like the setup of a bad horror movie, I was most impressed by the idea of carrying all the food and water you would need for three days -- plus a tent and a sleeping bag -- to hike over the mountains. I know people do it, but I don't think I ever actually saw a group of people hoisting all that gear on their backs and heading off into the trees.

And smiling as they waved goodbye.
