I went for a little ATV ride yesterday evening to cool off, and get some fresh air.
Found myself down on the Knik River, off the Old Glenn Highway. Unloaded the old atv, and headed down into the trails.
I was not only shocked at what i saw, but pissed off when i saw the massive amounts of trash heaped everywhere.
During the 4th of July weekend, the IDIOTS of Alaska (probably came from the lower-48) cut down trees, spray painted the rocks and trees, left trash everywhere. One area had a large area coverd with poop and toilet paper.
WHAT KIND OF ANIMALS are using my (and yours) recreational area like this....!?!
I would hate to see the Anchorage PD have to patrol this area during the weekends, much like police departments in the States have to. But, after seeing this crap yesterday, I think it's time to start handing out some tickets, and barring violators from these areas.
On the southern side of the bridge, there seems to be a few people "squatting" in the woods. An old Ford Camper van that houses some homeless guy, and his little camp is a stinking mess.
Your thoughts On This...?
