Trail Riddles | High Sierra Topix  

Trail Riddles

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Thirty white horses on a red hill.
First they champ,
Then they stamp,
Then they are standing still.

What are "they".

Hint: They are not horses and it's not a hill.

You got it B!
I guess there is no point in posting the one about eggs!
I read that book (The Hobbit) when I was a kid and never forgot Gollum's cave and the riddles.

He forgot to take his blood-pressure medication (which was in the unopened pack) and died of an aneurysm.

Missed his ride to the Sierra and dropped dead from a broken heart!

Yup. Parachute failed to open.

But I did like BSquared's answer! Kind of like me!

Steve and Mary are found dead on the kitchen floor. The floor is wet and there's broken glass all around them. The kitchen window is open.

Who are Steve and Mary and how did they die?

If a yellow house has yellow bricks, a blue house has blue bricks, and a red house has red bricks, what color bricks does a green house have?

Red! (If the bricks were from growing good sinsemilla in the greenhouse.)
