Trash Clean up Day on the East Fork of the San Gabriel
« on: October 01, 2013, 01:26:27 PM »
This past weekend my buddy Andrew and I did a trash cleanup day along the East Fork of the San Gabriel river.  It was put on by this guy Alan, who is known by his YouTube name Pharroah. Great times and lots of trash picked up.

Here is the video I put together.

Thousands of picnickers and gold prospectors park every weekend during summer of the East Fork of the San Gabriel River, then walk down to the mountain creek with ice chests, boomboxes, shovels, and sluice boxes.

They litter, light campfires, defecate in the wild and dig for gold in the river.  Doesnít seem to be much hope for that river, but you and your group sure made it a nicer place to visit.  But maybe there is hope with people like you.  Thanks Huck!

Exactly....  People will carry their trash in, but then those wrappers they leave, which basically weigh nothing!
