AZ 77 Highway Cleanup

Aravaipa Canyon

Throwing a 40 out your window does not constitute a proper pouring for your dead homie.

The Aravaipa Property Owners Association cleaned up their section of AZ 77, just south of Aravaipa Creek, today. We also had a crew cleaning up along Aravaipa Rd.I figure I did maybe a half mile of one side. Lots of beer containers, 90% of which were, of course, Bud Light. Some cans were so old, and rusted, they crumbled when I picked them up. Lots of beer bottles as well, many broken. I even picked up what looked like one trucker bomb. (It was only half full 16 ouncer, so he must not have been driving long.) :roll:

A fraction of the trash I collected. It was mostly beer cans, and most of those were Bud Light -- just like when I am hiking.

I got off track, down the berm, finding myself with a very heavy full bag. It took quite a while to heave myself, and the bag, back up the slippery, loose berm, and do so without the broken glass in the bag bumping against my leg. I am actually sore this evening.

I suck at backing up. My Acura RDX has a backup camera. So, of course, I backed into my neighbor Richard’s gate. :-? It bent a little. Since him & his wife Polly are thinking of renting their guest house to hikers/whoever, I offered to compensate by doing a web site for him. :-)

A proper beer that would soon be properly disposed of (in my mouth). It is made with grapefruit. Brandenburg Mountain in the background.
