    Correct Answer
    C. They were on a camping trip and were hiking.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "They were on a camping trip and were hiking." This is indicated by the phrase "They were on a camping trip," which suggests that the Palmer family had planned a trip to the woods for camping. The word "hiking" further supports this, as it implies that they were walking in the woods for recreational purposes rather than searching for a lost dog or taking a shortcut home from the store.

As a result, Jonathan had to wait for her at various points along the trail to ensure they could continue hiking together.
