Went for a hike today in the Amphitheater area south of Ouray and saw this brand new sign. Sad.
Tony, yes the verbiage on the sign of “too many people” seems to have a bit to do with the rest of the message no doubt. The NP I visit often has one certain day usage only area that I’ve seen trashed twice now. Within 50 ft. of the location is not only 55 gallon trash cans, but an adjacent dumpster. Both times I happened upon the site neither 55 gallon drums or the dumpster were full. Yet the entire area was deluged with trash.
Both times my brother and I cleaned the area up. Once with the assistance of a park volunteer that happened upon the scene.
SAD was the key word there too.
