    Last Sunday I went hiking in the gorge. I forgot my bag to collect litter. Thankfully, I didn't find a whole lot (but any is too much), so I was able to stash it in my backpack. Several energy bar wrappers, a water bottle, a couple plastic bags (empty), and a small stash of beer cans. I didn't take any pics of the garbage, but I did take this...

    Challenge is complete but I plan to stay mindful of water usage and food waste.
