Castle Rock Clean-up, Episode 2

I have to say, this was the most fun cleaning up trash I’ve ever had. Shimmying through all the crevices to reach little ‘Easter Eggs’ of bottles, cans, and other debris was more or less like a game. It was also mostly successful. There were some areas beyond the reach of our trash grabbing tool, but I kind of look forward to returning and finding out a new way to gnab it.

Some highlights:

  • Sunglass lenses
  • Camera lens covers
  • iPhone case
  • A phone battery
  • Old, cool looking soda cans.


  • Broken Glass – This stuff is a pain in the arse to clean up. Plastic is probably worse for the environment, but at least it doesn’t fracture as much and is easier to remove!

Here’s some before and after pics:

Next summer I think I’ll dive in there and go for all the small things. Until then, I’m crossing my fingers for the first dusting of snow this Saturday! Woo!

Lastly, I wanted to thank my friend from Myanmar, Mun, for coming along and being a good sport as I made him rappel off the rock for his first time.
