I think I'm annoyed because from the sound of the ranch hands, this happens on a somewhat frequent basis. They just completely re-marked all trails this year, so is it really that difficult to put up a warning sign saying it COULD be boggy? I guess it was very stupid on my own behalf, but these trails are completely manicured by the province (being a provincial park) and checked regularly. I could understand if we ventured off on our own, but this was a clearly marked (and recently RE-MARKED) trail specifically designated for horses and hikers.
I definitely know better, but I never would have tried it if it hadn't been designated. And I understand people not realizing it IS boggy, but this has happened on numerous occasions now over the last several years so that's a somewhat lousy excuse, they DO know it happens.
I know it's nobody's fault but my own for being so naive, it's just hard to not be annoyed, knowing others have endured this EXACT same thing and nothing has ever been done.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
