Kudos to them for keeping their wits about them and finding water to drink. Too many people stupidly go off on a trail without any water or other survival supplies. Then, taxpayer money has to be spent to rescue them from their own stupidity. Before setting out on any trial, no matter how well marked it is, people need to prepare themselves better than they do. I've seen people on trails in flip flops for pete's sake! Wear strudy hiking boots or other shoes with good traction, bring more water than you think you will need (at least a liter per person), put a few energy bars in your pocket along with your cell phone and some matches. Even on summer hikes tie a windbreaker around your waist. These things can save your life if you find yourself lost in the woods overnight folks!
