NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS
– Bank next to the SEPTA Norristown Line Bridge needs cleanup on east side of bridge.
– So does the drain/bridge on north side of Wissahickon Bike Trail between SEPTA bridge and 100 Steps.
– Ridge Avenue trailhead sure could use some bike racks, duh.
– Woman walking with two small dogs on leash said “it smells great back here, the earth.”
– Two enormous tulip poplar trees on Kelpius Trail where it crosses Hermit Lane.
– Small grove of tall pine trees just above tulips on Hermit Lane.
– Golf Course Run needs cleanup along Yellow Trail.
– Area under Walnut Lane Bridge around Yellow Trail needs cleanup (as usual).
– The amount of golf balls around the Yellow Trail around the golf course is never not funny.
– Area surrounding the trash can at Kitchens Lane is trashed.
– Humid late summer day? Enjoy these mosquitoes. Ugh.
