I was actually down in Shenandoah last week and had a great time hiking with some incredible views. Most people were considerate with wearing masks. We stayed to ourselves almost all of the time. The one thing that I found really disturbing is the number of dog poop bags that people just throw into trees on the side of the trails. And to top it off, on one of the trails, someone threw their baby's dirty diaper on the ground. I've noticed the dog poop bags at my local hiking place. Drive me nuts...

SMH ... why would someone go to the trouble of collecting dog poop in a bag, only to toss the bag to the side of the trail ? What is wrong with people ?

Agreed. That legitimately makes no sense. Didn't see any of that in the Finger Lakes, but the trails I was on in the gorges mostly don't allow dogs at all.

Right where I want to be
When on a day hike (or a skinning run) with the dog I sometimes bag it and put it behind a tree to grab it on the way back down.

Okay, that might explain some of it, but I've seen bags hanging in trees that have been there for weeks.

Wow - you have some great photos! Certainly gets me excited for ski season - no matter what the season will look like!

Thanks! I do enjoy looking back through my skiing photos from time to time to help get excited for the season. I hadn't done that in a while up until now.

This is a thing in Colorado! Many locals hate it and I agree! I think people think the dates are for the forest rangers to pick up. It is messed up for sure!

It's as if they wanted to take something environmentally harmless, and make it environmentally irresponsible.
