Rubber Fishing

Who needs a gym when you can haul tires up an incline?

This is a shot of me pulling tires out of a pond in the Johnson Creek watershed. There were at least 50 tires in the water and surrounding acre. Along the steep embankment were bags of trash in various states of decomposition, dirty diapers, a faux-leather recliner (that sucker was heavy), a large wooden spool, drywall, and other construction materials. But! I also found salamanders under some debris and there were ducks scuttling across the pond.

Rusty paint can from the clean up.
