and busy- 10 with, 9 without. all following leash laws & polite, most keeping their dogs close unless told it was ok.
traffic jam! i am often guilty of this sort of thing- stopping in the middle of the trail to talk to someone. i try not to do it, but we all space & are less than thoughtful on occasion. so here's a gentle reminder- good idea to get off to the side of the trail for a visit. especially if there are dogs involved.
