I was at Karekare falls today with the family. Mint day. Beautiful walk through the bush to the falls, 3 or 4 families enjoying the place. Then this crew shows up. I heard them maybe 4 or 5 minutes before they arrived. They were blasting the shittiest dance-hop through a boom box as loud as it would go and kept it going once they arrived. Pretty much drowned out the sound of the waterfall.
I don’t know about you guys but I found it incredibly obnoxious and inconsiderate. I feel like it’s arrogant to subject people to your loud music in a place where people have probably come specifically to avoid things like that and enjoy nature. I’m 35 and have played in bands, I love loud music in the right setting, I just feel like that’s not it.
So, a show of hands, who’s with me and who thinks I’m just an out of touch buzz kill?
I hope I'm doing this right as this is my first time posting on this subreddit and I'm pretty new to Reddit as it is, but I thought people here might enjoy this.
A little backstory; shortly after my husband and I got married (2019) we went up to northern Washington State to visit his family for Christmas and New Years. Spending most of my life in Florida I was pumped to see the snow there! To get the best snow, his dad and step mom brought us up to Ladder Falls, a pretty long drive up the mountains away from any sort of civilization in the middle of winter. When I say there was no one there, I mean it, we ran into one woman who I guess enjoyed the spot to take her dog on a walk and that was it. Anyway, after spending a good couple hours exploring the trails we finally made it to the water falls there. It was so beautiful especially with the snowy landscape and was so thunderously loud I had to take a video. You can hear my husband and I talking about some of the workers paths that go up the side of the waterfall. Apparently during the summer, they have a sort of light show in the water fall where I believe music is played as well. However when we were there, all this wasn't being put on, because again, hardly anyone would even see it. The only thing we could hear was the waterfall itself.
Fast forward to the next day, I'm looking at all the pictures I had gotten on my phone and got to the video. I started watching it and was surprised at what I was hearing. My husband was getting dressed and asked where the music was from and if I was adding music into the video. I told him I didn't even know how to do that (I'm technologically stupid with stuff like that). I told him no, and we listened together.
I submitted this video to paranormal youtube channel who said they didn't really have an explanation for it. In the comments people pointed out that you could only hear the music in one side of the headphones, which I listened to again and found out that they were right. I don't know what would cause that either. Do you guys have any idea what this could be? Either Paranormal or some sort of natural explanation? Every single person I've shown this to were lost for any sort of reasoning, but the music is really pretty regardless.
