Walking the Highway


Again, for the lack of hiking opportunities here at Bayhorse I took another walk along the highway going in the other direction this time.

You’d be surprised as to how much debris in scattered along the roadside and this is a lightly traveled highway.  Besides the usual that people toss out their windows (I won’t get started on that) there is a lot of bits and pieces that have come off cars, trucks, trailers and motorhomes.
And there are the road kills too.

Most of the large ones are usually deer but this area has bighorn sheep and there are road signs warning the motorist to be cautious as they do come down by the highway to cross. 

I came to a fork in the road and not knowing really where to go from there I turned around to head back.

Walking on the other side now (I always walk facing the traffic) I saw this down in the ravine.

An old style fuel can.  These things are collectables now.  
Aside from one dent, probably where it hit flying out from the back a truck it was in good shape.

I would have kept it but I don’t have the room nor the use.
So I left it by the sign up the road.

I've never understood why people throw stuff out their car windows. The will eventually come to a place where they can put it in a trash can. It's one of my pet peeves, like people who don't pick up their dog poo.
