"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Trash, Sir, at Big Sur

The project:
Pick up trash around camp and on the trail during a midweek getaway to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.

Moments here and there.

Why bother?
It seems there's nowhere on this Earth where trash isn't being left behind, blown into nooks and crannies or tossed out in the open. It's easy enough to pick it up. We tend to leave our campsite better than we found it. We do the same for trails.

Worth it?
