When visiting here, please remember that you are visiting a pristine wilderness, so take only pictures and leave only foot prints. If every person left just 1 piece of trash, it would pile up. We have a habit of picking up trash from others and taking it out. Just think, if everyone took one piece of trash out, how clean the forest would become.
