    I found another mess at a camping site in the Golar Heights Iron canyon area. I made a video of the area. This one will make you sick!

    I'm sure there are some fine people living in the Los Angeles area. But these campers certainly did not fit in that category. The reason I pretty sure that they came from the Los Angeles area is because there were plastic grocery bags scattered around the area that had the name of a small grocery store chain in that area on them. Plus, the 35 or so water bottle came from a Ralphs Grocery store. There are no Ralphs stores within 130 miles of this location. Most of them are in the Los Angeles area.

    At least it gives you something to do. I would also clean up the area.

    I just can’t believe we need to start the whole anti littering this over. It’s 2020. I’m finding trash and human waste in very remote areas of wyoming. Just not enough folks for enforcement. Trying to educate these folks is a waste. Does anyone really think it’s ok to litter? Heavy fines are the only solution

    I forgot I had that weapon showing there. There have been several mountain lion encounters around that area lately. I just wanted to play it safe.

    Well, don't tell your daughter that I kept the 6 cans of unopened beer. I'm going to pass the beer through my Kidneys first, then discard it. They say that that is the best way to get rid of beer. I just want to do my part! LOL

    I run a campground and when they leave a mess like this it seems over half of the trash is alcohol related or from smoking.

    My kids have gotten so upset with the amount of trash around when walking in parks in our area we actually started a trash team. We meet on Tuesday's, have bought a collection of trash pickers from Amazon and Harbor Freight, grab a couple buckets/plastic grocery bags and pick up what we find. The kids feel like they make a difference and the parks look better for everyone. This week we actually walked the train tracks to clean those up since we can see them from the road. I think the pickers will come with us on the next camp trip, just in case!
    Oh, and we've decided to call them cigarette filters instead of cigarette butts. It keeps the squad of kids we now have from making too many fart or butt jokes[LOL]

    Nice to see that but I suggest you don't walk the railroad tracks. They are private property and may also be under homeland security.

    Yowsa not good. Well, the intention was good. We only picked up true trash (broken glass, plastic cups, wrappers) and left railroad spikes, bolts, washers, etc. Right where we saw them. I&O RR repaired the tracks last year and left ties, spikes, e.t.c everywhere. We knew not to touch those

    A man near me was walking his dog on the tracks when RR police issued him a summons and he had to appear in court. He pleaded guilty to the charge. The judge said he didn't hear the plea but to think carefully before he answers because the fine is a minimum of $10,000 under homeland security.
