Hilarious! What a fun, witty voice, and a grin in every paragraph. Love it!

Very funny and right on target, especially the part about sitting on the rock making funeral arrangements. So true to life, since some women (and a few men) don't go for hiking.

However, I was a little puzzled over the phrase "seemingly imaginary people". Are they real people she thought were mirages, or did she actually imagine other hikers on the trail?

This was SO fun and enjoyable. Exceptional writing! The only paragraph that didn't seem to flow to me was the second to last - but that just could be me. Keep writing!

Very enjoyable. I especially liked the conversation. It gave me the impression that all of this actually happened to you. In fact, I didn't even consider it to be fiction until I thought about the possibility at the end. Fun

I liked this. Very good imagry. I can so relate to the woman in the story. I get lost so easily. It's comforting to know that gps's don't always work. Good job. Keep writing and sharing.

That was masterfully written. If it wasn't a real life event, then you have an imagination that is hard to match...for that matter, your creativity with phrases is hard to match as well.
