My kids and I love to wander the gultch near puget park. We have been taking that trail to the waterfront forever and usually love it, but tonight we decided to go the other way ( which we have done before) well tonight we got lost and finally ended up at a fence which did read no trespassing, but I was tired of being lost and needed to get out of the gultch before it got really dark, so as I am climbing over the fence I hear this woman screaming for me to get off her property. I apologized for trespassing and tried to explain that myself and my two eight year olds were lost and were very sorry but we were going to walk down the alley and go home. Well then she and her husband lost it and insisted that we climb back over the fence and go back into the gultch. I calmly said I was not going to do that and then they said they were going to call the police, by this time my son is hysterical so I just ignored them and kept walking. If perhaps they read feedtacoma I would like to send them a message FUCK OFF

|The home owners could have been more accomodating since you mentioned the dilemma you were in. Perhaps there is some mental illness or paranoia about home invasions at play here. Those gulches are a nightmare to climb out of. When I was younger I had several occasions just like the one you described. Just some random thoughts here, thanks for sharing your story, Chris.|

|I think that gulch is spooky and also bad luck. Somewhere deep inside there is a gold wedding band that met with an untimely death 15 years ago. My daughters father threw it away one night when I caught him cheating with the woman he's now married to. (He lived across the street from the gulch at the time). I made the mistake of pointing out that if what he told her was true and that we already broke up then why was he wearing the engagement ring I bought him. Rooky mistake. |
He ended up flinging it into the dark night and down into the gulch. I was still making payments. (The next day he tried to get back together with me too - he was funny like that). Karma's a bitch though. He's got three kids with her and they are getting a divorce now. His child support payments to her are gonna be much much higher than the ring payments I had to pay.
I agree those people were rude. In the movies people are always nice to you when you're lost once they put the shotguns down.

|I like your story, even though it is sad.|

|The gulch is pretty raw and its easy to get confused on side trails. |
I think I have come up accidentally in someone's yard when I was trying to figure it out years ago.
No doubt the owners have had people come through their yard many a times and been intimidated. Doesn't excuse their behavior though.

|@AngelaJossy: that is a cool/ sad story. I wonder what other kinds of sentimental items have been dramatically cast into the gulch over the years?|
Now where's that metal detector...?

|It was pretty dramatic. Jerry Springer would have salivated over that exchange. As I recall he threw it because I asked for it back.
He was indeed a Gulch Asshole. Still is in my opinion. *smile*
I bet there is a lot of interesting stuff to be found in there. Maybe its the land of all lost items and that's why people frequently get lost in there.
