Here are a few of my favorite silly tourist questions, just a few of the thousand or so I collected when researching my bestselling book, “When Do You Let The Animals Out?”
At what elevation does an elk become a moose?
Should I leave my bacon out on the picnic table or bring it into the tent with me?
Where does Alberta end, and Canada begin?
Can we visit a part of Canada that Canadian haven’t seen yet?
How do the elk know to cross at the elk crossing signs?
Do you speak Canadian?
Where did I just come from?
How many undiscovered lakes are there around here?
That’s a lovely Canadian flag you have – does it come in other colors?
Do the bighorn sheep require shepherds?
How many hiking trails can I get lost on?
Are you allowed to stay overnight at the campgrounds?
To escape a bear do you have to climb a tree that’s the same width as your head?
Can you show us something that we haven’t seen yet?
