We are reaching the end of the Jungle trail

I have taken this picture, and there is something that I would like you to find out.

Can you spot anything that is supposed not to be a part of the jungle? And I cannot explain whether there is any necessity to use it inside a jungle. A jungle should look like a jungle, doesn't it?

A jungle should look like a jungle, but once it is scattered with pieces of paper that were laid by hashers, with the outline of a human foot as their traditional symbol, I always feel very secure. The trail we are on is certainly not marked by them. These are pieces of re-cycled paper. I am wondering whether this is done by you. Well, it may not be a surprise to learn that you are keen to be a hasher after these days of hiking.

"Come on! Give me five!"

As we move on and happen to see these empty benches, we are now reaching the end of the jungle trail.

These benches are usually empty,

and you can see one of them, though empty, the legs are not empty at all. They are fully covered. Are you curious enough to find out what are actually hiding underneath?

I am always curious, but how about you?

Great post, do the hashers come back for their trail markers. It does seem like it is trash if it is left their?

I have not heard of hashers before. But I am curious about what is hiding under the bench.

Diane AZ said...

Hashers are new to me. Paper doesn't look like it belongs in the jungle. What could be under the bench, a lizard?

Ginnymo said...

Weird, those benches in the jungle..Ha! But then it's a weird jungle. I'll be waiting to see what is under it. Have a nice weekend Rain.

Hashers? What is it...I thought i saw rubbish. Uh...i hate it when people throw rubbish in the jungle.

Rainfield it reminds me of Burkit Timah in Singapore-especially with the seats.

unfortunately hashes do leave trails in the jungle n they cannot possibly remove all of them after each session

Hasher is a new word to me too, and I do hope they come back for their loose tracks.

The benches look great for a rest.

A broom is placed in front of a tree at the top of the first picture, and this is one of those that I can find along my hiking trail. Seems like some people do want this jungle looks neat and tidy.

Whe I returned to Cerok Tokun today, I observed and confirmed that I was too curious about "nothing", nothing that was found under the bench.

look carefully at the last pic. there's something behind it..

Harumi said...

Looks like someone's taking care of the jungle chores pretty well. lol The broom isn't that hard to spot, once you expand the pic. The benches seem nice too. By any chance was there a hasher hiding underneath the bench? =D

I have benches like this at places on some of my trails too. Sometimes they look like yours and sometimes they are only blocks of wood. Maybe a few spiders have made the legs of these benches their homes?

As usual I'm late.

Anyway, nice to see those benches in a jungle. I like the second one, looks shiny. I enlarge the first picture but I didn't see any broom on the picture but looking at the photo URL, I found the word 'broom' on it :)

Sometimes, it's nice to see the jungle neat and tidy :-) If I am the hiker, it will be easier for me :)

CH said...

Benches are very helpful to me in the trail.

Thank you, benches.

Mei Teng said...

I think people are dumping garbage in the jungle trail.

VanillaSeven said...

Yup, I am very curious rainfield...

came via eileeninmd's post, you mentioned about lava.

On Sat, I just visited an extinct volcano. In many places, the lava rocks were still very fresh. My husband said. next time we have overseas visitors, we will take them there.

What are hashers? I am confused, but that's not so unusual.
