One Man’s Trash: Week 34 Report

WEEK 34: Allens Lane & Lincoln Drive to Carpenter’s Woods

shart34_01

My selfish goal/personal motivation for doing this project spread out over the course of a year was to get to know every corner of the park. I’m getting close to that, although there are still sections of trail that I have yet to see. And it’s admittedly shameful that I went the entire summer without making it into Houston Meadow, which makes me think I missed a wildflower bounty. Oh, the perils of the Busy Modern Man.

Nuts to that, man, let’s get in the woods.

Map to come.

NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS
– Devil’s Pool actually not that bad for a couple days after Labor Day
– The backyard and deck that hang out over Carpenters Trail off of Mt Pleasant Place is a total mess — litter, pieces of decomposing plastic, a tire. Be better neighbors to the park literally in your backyard, jeez.
