Crypto-Zoological Tourism

My wife pointed out to me a CBC report on the Sasquatch. The radio report used the lovely phrase 'crypto-zoological tourism'.

Last week we were in Scotland and devoted one of our days to the classic piece of crypto-zoological tourism in the Western world by driving to and around Loch Ness and trying to suss out the state of Nessie. It was a windy day, and so not a Nessie day, and so we made no sighting ourselves.

We did inadvertently stumble into an excellent exhibit on the details of the 'monster' sightings - I recommend it to anyone who goes there. I was shocked to learn that there may not be an actual lake creature. But the show was an education.
