Agree and said this same thing myself elsewhere. She was an adult and having two grown daughters myself, I know as a parent you can't always talk them out of doing something you know will be dangerous. That being said, ya gotta try. A young woman should never go on a trip like that unprotected and alone, period. Like you said, this isn't just about being a young woman though ... even though that increases the danger ... there are many places I wouldn't go, basic instinct and a little common sense tells us all that.
