Any word from the trail on the effects of the government shutdown? Vandalism, garbage etc?

I’ve been watching with disgust what’s taking place in the desert southwest. Seriously what is wrong with people? It’s free so let’s trash it! I just don’t get it. Anyways, I have not seen or heard anything about the C&O. I suppose we’re lucky it’s winter which probably keeps the partiers away. I wouldn’t doubt that there will be some dumped trash found come this spring or when it reopens. This whole thing is a disgrace.

I had heard it was still open, but as normal for the winter the pump handles will be off and bathrooms closed. Bikers were already expected to take out their own trash and they normally do a great job of “leaving no trace behind”. It’s the up bringing of certain people, they just don’t care and will ruined it for others. It is a disgrace that people do that.
