Beautiful day in southwest Michigan.

We — a couple in our 70s — head towards Warren Woods for a healthful walk in the woods.

There is a pandemic. We bring our masks. Many sections of the trail are far narrower than 6 feet. We encounter a variety of other hikers … most have no masks. A few don them or walk off the trail when we make a polite request. Some of them snarl at us; challenge us; and brag about not having to wear a mask, refusing to make any adjustments to their hike.


Do they go home proud of themselves that they told off a little old lady in the woods?
