Summary

Summary

You left your car at sunrise and headed out for a daylong hike along a marked trail to a scenic mountaintop. But somwhere along the way you missed a turn. It's getting dark and you're sitting in a high-country meadow infested with thistles, and very hungry. You know you'll sleep here tonight. Consider yourself lucky: thistles are edible.
