Nasty Trash and Stuff

16 09 2008

One thing that I noticed when we were out in the BLM area exploring was that there is a lot of trash.  Most decent outdoors people (and even regular folks) follow the Leave No Trace principle which is essentially exactly what it says, don’t litter, don’t mess up the ecosystem.  BLM lands are public lands with fairly loose restrictions on their usage.  For example, ATVs are allowed, you can go backcountry camping there.  But it seems that this is also that place I mentioned before up in the canyon where the losers go to get drunk and party.  Which honestly i’m fine with, except there is broken glass ALL over the place.  Back in the woods you can tell people found a nice place to hang out and trashed it.  Plastic litter and broken fifths of vodka.  It’s really sad and ugly, and well, dangerous too. The fact that the area in general is so beautiful makes the trash stick out even more.  Next time I go out there I’m bringing a big ole’ garbage bag, maybe I can at least pick up the plastic stuff.

Here are a few pictures from Dinosaur Flats in the Garden Park Fossil Area.  I just think it’s so neat that someone once found fossils out here.  Makes me want to be a paleontologist again…

Giant ant hill.  Pretty normal out here.  We have one bigger than this in our front yard by the road, but since school has started the kids walking home from school have been messing with it… BAD KIDS get out of my yard! Only I can play with the ant hill.

As you know Webb loves to wave at the camera. I would say that he’s a dork, but that would be rude.

After the cacti bloom in June/July the flowers fall off and the ends are green, but in the Fall they turn yellow.  Pretty.
