    Wow - Can't say I blame them. I still want the Road Closed sign back!

    99% of the cleanup I do is broken glass.

    I don't see nearly as much glass as I used to. Probably helps that the craft companies have started canning their beers.

    I think often locals trash their own backyard. This pic is from 1998, a spot very few out-of-staters went to. Nice pic of our Black Lab 'Happy' at the Divide, thing is it was a party spot for the locals once the snowdrifts allowed access.

    I'm pimping the pic to get old Happy's picture on the internet, but that pic doesn't show the fire ring next to her riddled with broken glass. We know that area well, and I know it's locals that party there and leave the bottles behind.

    I’m not saying there hasn’t been destruction but that tree looks like it fell over not like it was cut down. There have been significant wind events in So Cal recently which I’m willing to bet cause that.

    I know some (all?) BLM managed OHV areas ban all glass containers and will cite anyone found with one. Draconian indeed but apparently necessary - especially with that user community which sadly doesn’t comport itself particularly well. Or like most such things has a critical mass of bad apples tarnishing the entire community.

    Corva is claiming it's fake news.

    They are only participating in promoted hysteria. Remember, their job has changed significantly. It used to be to disseminate news. Now their job is to sell advertising and get certain people elected.

    And one thing is certain. They ‘know’ someone that owns a truck is most likely a backwards, redneck asshole. That’s all.

    I missed you there by just a couple days- maybe next time! :thumbsup:

    I noticed the same thing as you- the Cholla garden had 100’s of peeps parked everywhere wondering through the Cholla, no where near the trail. White Tank campground- with the boulders was unhinged, gridlocked completely chaotic.

    Anyone ever do Echo Canyon? Easy ride, a portion is on deep broken shale.

    Below is eye of the needle

    Explored around the Inyo Mine
    9A40CE63-BB4F-4BFC-A5AD-D3566BABCD40.jpg

    Then my youngest raced into this structure, heard a rattle “inside” then ran out.

    Turns out the rattle snake was on the stairs, “outside” of the structure, below.

    I have no idea how my son was not bit- twice. Maybe the snake recently had a meal...

    I was never on pavement long enough to see the real cluster fuck.

    Probably too cold to care. I'm surprised he was out.

    The Echo Canyon pic was spring of 2017.

    In JT a couple weeks ago- we only did old dale and stopped at the boulders for the kids. :thumbsup:

    They have been mentioned in this thread many times. I just got back from six days there being "nude" at times. Others were nude as well.
