Trail Trash - Hansen Dam, CA
This (see photo above) is what I typically collect each day along the horse trail leading into Hansen Dam from Shadow Hills.
Everyday, beer cans and beer bottles thrown on the ground.
Do some of these riders think that this is a kind of offering to the poor or something? I mean really. Trash is NOT charity. Carry it out and deposit in trash can. Do NOT throw it on the ground or in the bushes...please.
Perhaps some shared space understanding and training is necessary here. I am working on it.
Why barefooting? I believe it makes one more aware of one's surroundings. You are part of the world, grounded and connected to it. Barefoot, you feel the connection to the earth, and therefore want the earth to be healthy and beautiful and pure...
There is a connection.
PS. BFT's Challenge: pick a place in the world, a public place, and become its caregiver. Your care will carry over to those who use that space. All will benefit. Encourage others to do the same. Smile.
