Cleaning the earth

...one shell casing at a time.

This past weekend, we all joined a massive cleanup of Four Peaks, a popular desert off-roading destination. It really was an awe-inspiring effort, one that we were all proud to be a part of. What had started as a small volunteer group had grown into a 250 strong pack of people, complete with company-sponsored donations of vitamin water, hamburgers, raffles and giveaways. It was disheartening to see the effects of so many people who could so carelessly destroy something as beautiful as the desert.... but it restored my faith in humanity to be around so many willing to put in the time and the effort to help make things right.
