Besides me, who else on the trail has hiked past litter? Ugh. It can completely ruin the hike.
Right when you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere and one with nature, you look down to find a bright white used Kleenex laying on the dirt ground. Or a plastic water bottle. Or a Circle-K cup. Or candy wrappers. Or a variety of these items all scattered around. Nothing can take you out of the feeling of being in nature than seeing litter along the trail.
I can’t understand why people would litter in the first place, but then especially while on a hike.
Along the Phoenix hiking websites and trail signs you may have noticed signs informing hikers of the “Leave No Trace” policy. This policy is exactly how it sounds. Leave No Trace that you were ever there.
Keep nature wild, right?! Right.
