I am not so sure that she didn’t know about it. Infact, she was hiking from Madison Hut to Lakes Hut, which is one of the most scenic hikes to do on Flags on the 48. I just think that she was making conversation and she definitely seemed overall positive about the event.
Personally, I agree with LOMU. I don’t think the WMNF is concerned, especially because we leave no trace. Now if we left our flags there, we would likely be hunted down by angy mobs with torches and pitch forks. :angry:
