Lost and Found
Lost and Found: FOUND: Two lost tourist. You heard that right. Did the loop counter-clockwise. Met up with another guy on Slippery Brook Trail about 1 1/4 from the parking lot, when we heard someone yelling for 'HELP'. Yelled back and guided them to us. They had hiked up to Chandler Cascade and lost the trail and were bushwhacking (trying to find the trail, any trail), lost would be another word for it. They were very happy to see us and find a trail. We guided them down to Emerald Pool. I had lunch at the parking lot and saw them come back to their car. They were driving out of the parking lot back to MA.
