A couple weeks ago, Friends of Berthoud Pass announced a trash-cleanup effort for yesterday morning. They did one in June, but I was busy making last-minute preparations for my Alaska trip and couldn’t make it. About 14 of us met up at 8am on the top of the pass, watched a safety video, and got to work.
The way the group split, we ran in to some people coming up from the bottom of the side we worked after about an hour and a half, and started heading back up to the top of the pass. Though it was a lot more work than I expected, it was a great time and I got to help clean up a place that I love. I’ll definitely be back in the spring if my schedule allows it.
