and it was our first time volunteering for this and was a learning experience. You wouldn't believe the trash we picked up between the two of us. Five bags full and one very long piece of discarded thick rope that I found hidden under some brush near the water.
We also found some pretty disgusting stuff along the way which we disposed of. People, please use the trash cans! Why throw things on the ground and litter? Let's keep California (and our country and our world) clean and beautiful. Do your part. If you are eating a candy bar or drinking a soda (or whatever!) walking along the trail, why not just hold onto it or stick it in your pocket and wait until you find a trash can? They have plenty of trash cans throughout the area. Why do you have to discard things in the bushes or on the path or in the water?
One area we found, where the fishermen park their vehicles, there was so much trash in front of their cars and trucks. Empty beer cans and bottles, cigarette butts, cartons of twelve packs left behind and numerous plastic bags and stuff. Shame on them.
