For the most part, I follow this basic outdoor ethics philosophy: take only pictures, leave only footprints. Actually, I take it a step further and do my best to take lots and lots of pictures and to not leave any footprints, especially when hiking in our desert where we have lots of cryptobiotic soil.
However, when hiking in the San Rafael Swell, Utah recently, I got a wild hair and left something other than footprints. I don’t think anyone will mind.
If you happen to get to Crack Canyon or Little Wild Horse Canyon, let me know if you see this guy or any of his kind around.
