These two older fellows can attest to that.
Howard H. Drake, 76, of Silverton, was sentenced to 10 days in jail for picking up a human skull and showing it to a group of hikers.Harry Hance, 81, of Mancos, was sentenced to three days in jail for helping organize the hikes.
It could have been worse and Drake should have known better. I want to go on one of these Senior Outdoor hikes like this. This one was out of Durango.
Have I ever seen a skull or say a basket? No and if I did I would not touch either. Pick up a shard of pottery? Yes I do.
This "off trail" position in places has become too overbearing and uncompromising. Do I go off trail? Of course at times and it depends where you are. I'm too old to get my ass chewed out. Do I climb on walls? No. Do I respect whats there? Of course yes - very much so!
