are humans the only creatures that create garbage?

lots of shiny aluminum cans on the edge of pretty country roads this weekend. a six-pack trail of Budweiser followed by the dang box that carried them. tossed out the window. a nice greasy collection of fast food containers by a pretty lookout. someone must have stopped to enjoy the lovely view and a quick snack. wiped their mouth when they were done, sucked down the last of their soda and then pushed everything out the window and drove off. i don't get it. how to make them stop?

lovely weekend riding

linda and i spent the weekend in Paso Robles for the Great Western Bike Rally. We brought all of our camping gear (what little we own) packed it all in (a quilt for beneath our bodies and pillows for our heads) took the exit to the fairgrounds and pulled right into a Motel 6. We're no campers. Our good friend Dick has done the GWBR for years and brings all his camping gear (a tent for us that he has ready when we arrive) cooking equipment and FOOD (we contribute some wine, etc.). But this year his mom died so he couldn't make it. We missed him and not just because he cooks for us but because he is always in a good mood. We did the 100 mile ride on Saturday. Lots of gorgeous riding except for the brief slog along Hwy 101.
