Tourist: one that makes a tour for pleasure or culture.
Moron: a very stupid person!
From Yellowstone employees:
Touron: a very stupid tourist. See pictures below:
We can definately tell around here that the busy tourist season is upon us. There is much more traffic and visitors about. There are areas around the thermal features where YOU ARE NOT TO LEAVE THE TRAIL. There are signs posted everywhere stating: DANGER! And yet, people choose not to follow the signs or abandon all common sense. The idiots above - stupid. These people would probably be fined very heavily if a ranger had spotted them. Not to mention either falling into scalding hot water or falling through the thin crust around some of the hotsprings and thermal areas.
