It’s been a busy day. Started out by over-sleeping and arriving late for the annual Marlborough ARRT trail cleanup. This part of the rail trail was finished in 2005 and gets a cleanup every spring. About 7 volunteers were already out on the trail when I arrived. The biggest item in the last couple of years has been plastic water bottles on the side of the trail. Joggers start out with a full bottle and toss them in the weeds when empty. It must be something about the thin clear plastic that makes so hard to spot on the ground. The other big problem are the vines and brambles that grow into the chain link fences. It can take hours to cut them out of the links, especially if they are the variety with 1-inch thorns.
Driving home after we finished, I spotted another fashion shoot on the trail, the 2nd in as many months. Conrad Steward of Allure Photography was shooting model Ellese at the ARRT caboose.
