Leave Only Your Footprints

When we, the St. Croix Hiking Association, go hiking off-island, what is posted at the entrance of most trails is a sign that says, "When you leave this trail, take only pictures and memories and leave only your footprints."

To the community, when you are hiking or picnicking at the park and on the beaches, you are able to carry all that heavy stuff, but when you are leaving you cannot find the strength to take your garbage back with you. Instead some choose to leave the trash barrels over flowing with the attitude that it's Public Works responsibility. "Two wrongs don't make a right."
