Fire pit trash

Trash found in fire pit. Click for larger image.

As we wheel and do volunteer work for the Forest Service, we come across a common find: Trash. In the picture, these items were picked up from around a fire pit at an organized FS camp area. Interestingly enough, these are items found at many different campsites along our California landscape.

The cigarette butts were a shock to me. Not because there was one outside of the fire ring, but because there were 4 separate piles of 8+, in each pile, outside the ring. Whoever camped at this spot must have had an intense weekend!

New Hi Desert Round-Up location is success

Hi-Desert Roundup changed its location to the Slash X Café/RV site off the 247 just South of Barstow about 15 miles!! What a great spot for the event. We had such great participation and good words of the site we had obtained for the 44th Hi-Desert Roundup.

You are in close location to the Pumpkin Eater Trail and Achy Breaky and three or four more I can't recall right now!!

The weather (W) even co-operated and didn't blow us off our seats!! We did have a couple dust devils that threw Steve Gardner's two EZ-ups over some trees and the one Angela Cook and I were using for the raffle took off and landed on Keith Graham's company truck???

Open gates

Don't let your trail's gate close

All of us love an open gate. Sometimes we see them on our morning commute, or way out in the desert as we head out with our toys. What lies beyond it? Is the public allowed? We make a note to check it out someday.

That day finally comes and you arrive at the gate. Only this time, it’s closed and a prominent sign confirms that it was closed with finality and purpose. Another opportunity lost. You wonder to yourself if there was something that you could have done.
