I would like to make a sincere request that we all tripple our efforts to leave our campsites cleaner than when we arrived. Last week I was dispersal camping near the Santa Barbara campground in Northern New Mexico. While the area was relatively clean I suspect that's because it is early in the season. Still, I found empty beer bottles, beer cans, perfect shotgun shells and plenty of spent ammunition.
