I hiked Turnagain Pass and up through the mountains looking for black bear and was appalled at the amount of trash that I came across. Unfortunately it was definately from the snowmachiners. I saw hundreds of beer cans, multiple quart and gallon 2 stroke oil containers, broken belts, windshields, throttles, soda bottles, and much more. My buddy and I didn't see any black bears (it was HOT) and at one point I was trying to find beer cans (they were very reflective and easy to find) and see if I could guess what brand they were by their color.
Don't get me wrong, in NO WAY am I a do-gooder bunny humper, but what I saw was offensive. I snowmachine too, but I haven't ever rode or hiked in Turnagain until this past weekend. I do realize that most people on this forum are responsible and probably aren't the one's trashing-up riding areas. I just want to get the word out to pack out what you pack in and remind your buddies to do the same. I doubt the non-motorized side of the pass looked like this! A zealous greenie would have excellent material to document and make waves about slob riders and snowmachiners.
