Interesting weather. Intermittent sunshine, clouds, light rain, wind and then it cycles through again. Temperature in the low 60’s.
Had the dogs retrieving in the water for a bit. They were very excited. This is the earliest I have had them in. We kept the retrieves short and only threw a few.
I spent several hours on my usual Earth Day activity. I picked up trash on Route 26, from Lakeview to just past the Loon Lake Mountain Trailhead. Just over three miles. I spend a lot of time on this particular stretch of road, all year and don’t like looking at litter.
It is interesting to scour the road shoulders for trash. You learn or guess a lot about people. By far the vast majority of the cans I found were Bud Lite. And they were all on the Southeast side of the road. Was this one guy, on multiple trips? several guys on one trip? One guy drinking a lot? Was he driving? Assuming the drinker was a passenger, given the location of the cans, I would surmise the vehicle was headed to the lake, from Duane.
I found one Genesee can. I have not seen this beer in decades. The only imported beer can found were two Labatt’s cans.
98 pecent of the cans were for light beer. What does this say about litterers? They care about their weight, but not the environment?
I found a lot of coffee cups, as well. Mostly from Stewart’s, and mostly on the Northwest side of the road. Are they from people on their way to work? I would surmise these are folks driving to work, cutting over from Duane. I did find one Starbucks cup.
Very few soda and sports drink bottles.
Maybe I am all wrong. Or maybe the drivers are drinking coffee, and the passengers are drinking beer.
I also saw three deer, one loon, three hooded mergansers, four mallards, a rabbit with very big feet, and a large turtle (crossing the road). None were drinking Bud Lite.
