Halloween Garbage Cleanup Planned at Euchre Bar

Noted geologist Dave Lawler and I are planning to visit Euchre Bar this Sunday, and work on cleaning up a nasty garbage site near there, on the North Fork of the North Fork. All are welcome. Gloves, garbage bags, and light twine or rope might be useful. The aim is mainly to get the garbage into one central location, from which, with any luck, it can be removed by helicopter.

The plan as I understand it is to meet at the trailhead parking area at 10:00 a.m. this Sunday the 31st. From I-80 eastbound, take the Alta exit, turn right and immediately left onto the frontage road, and in ~one mile turn right onto Casa Loma Road, follow it across railroad tracks, then in another mile or so cross the tracks again on a graveled road; follow this less than a mile to the parking area. Call me with any questions.

The garbage is said to be doubly haunted, by the ghosts of the ghosts of the Maidu Indians. Perhaps we will soothe the angry spirits.
