As far as recycling stuff goes, cardboard is up there with aluminum as items Mexico reuses. You don't need to burn that, IF your recycling depot will consider taking cardboard, paper board, brown paper, etc.
Nice work. We need to be responsible for our waste and give this beautiful nature we enjoy a chance to stay that beautiful.
Loved the snake story as well. Glad you were kind to it.

Top Kudos to all of you !!!!

One thing about people leaving trash is , if it's clean they most likely won't leave any BUT once there is a pile, it becomes a free for all ...

You all did SUCH a great thing and Baja thanks you all !!!




Since I've given up all hope, I feel much better

The thing I find odd about people who leave their trash behind is that they could haul it in full, so why can't they haul it out empty?

Exactly. Pack it in, pack it out; it's the only way that works. Putting trash in a barrel that doesn't get checked regularly just leads to a more unsightly scene. We've seen this more than once, eh?

...and we figured one big pile was better than two little piles so rather than haul the one big pile up we decided throw ours down...that's what we did...then we drove off into the sunset...

Simply outstanding!!!! Animas is truly a jewel. First spent a week there in 1979, and many trips down since. I applaud you all for the hard work you all did!!!
