People are excited about Mount Trashmore

I had the pleasure of taking a bus ride to the top of Mount Trashmore at the Eco Fest on Saturday. Everyone was so excited to see the views from up there. There were turkeys running around, and it was quite an adventure.

I suddenly remembered what I was standing on — garbage. Many cities would have hauled it all away in trucks and dumped it somewhere in the country.

But our leaders turned it into a hill with a view that people are excited about. That’s what I call recycling.
