Equestrians leave droppings behind

My son and I went to Trillium Community Forest recently to see if it was going to be conducive to deer hunting this season. No, I do not think so, seeing as how one must stay on the trails or else? But as I was walking the entire length of it, I was constantly underwhelmed by what I saw and kept wondering to myself what all the fuss over its acquisition by Whidbey Camano Land Trust was all about.

If you want solitude with a limited view as you hike, you got it. Just watch out for all the horse droppings left behind by horse owners on the south end who do not care what the commoners have to step in, over, and around in clear violation of the rule posted at the entrance which states one must clean up after one’s animal. If I did kill Bambi down there, I would at least have the decency to drag the gut pile off into the bushes where it would not be seen or stepped in. Oh wait, I’d be off the trail.
