I found it interesting that one of the places I have visited with the most trash in campgrounds, hiking trails, and along the road was the Washington Olympic peninsula. For a place that labels itself as being very "green" it was disappointing. I have never seen anything as trashed up in MT, ID, OR, WY, etc.

hidee ho

Dutchmen, great post and I heartily agree; leave a campsite better or cleaner than when you arrived. Like others, once a Boy Scout, I guess always a Boy Scout! What I don't understand is, over Memorial Day weekend, in Yavapai county where we live in northern Az., something over 44 campfires were abandoned and left unattended! How is that possible? Are people that stupid and inconsiderate? Boggles the mind............
Happy Camping!

I believe in "leave no trace" all the years at Burning Man proved to me that even very large groups of campers can "leave no Trace" its a real shame one camper can't do the same
