As many of you already know, I’m addicted to all things Wyoming. My family lived there when I was very young, and I visit the state at every opportunity.
One of those times was the week of July 11 – 18 as part of my annual pilgrimage to backpack the Wind River Range, and the Bridger Wilderness in particular.
For the most part, it is pristine high country – for the most part. The rule in the back country is haul out what you haul in. So it was with some dismay that Twix and Quaker Chewy Granola Bar (more than one of these) wrappers were among the junk found around campsites or blowing loose above 10,000 ft. I should’ve taken photos of this debris but was slow on the draw to do so.
It seems slobbery knows no altitude or state boundaries. If we can’t keep a wilderness area clean, what hope is there for the more populated areas?
