Dumb Things Tourists Ask in Banff

Here are some of the "All Time Dumbest Questions Asked by Banff Park Tourists," as heard at the information kiosks manned by Parks Canada staff.

*At what elevation does an elk become a moose?
*Is it okay to keep an open bag of bacon on the picnic table, or should I store it in my tent?
*I saw an animal on the way to Banff today. Could you tell me what it was?
*What's the best way to see Canada in a day?
*Where can I buy a raccoon hat? All Canadians own one don't they?
*Where can I get my husband really lost?
*Is that 2 kilometers by foot or by car?

Question: Have you heard anything comparable re: North Idaho/Inland Northwest tourists?
