The gateway to the west: Gateway Arch is a marvelous industrial accomplishment. I have visited it multiple times during my stint in the Midwest. Then one day I kept driving west with my soon to be wife and settled down in California to explore the natural beauty of the west coast.
Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it. - confucius
This past weekend myself,my husband my mom, dad brother plus a couple hundred other people went out to Joshua tree Desert for a cleanup. It was so disheartening to see the amount of trash that people leave behind out in nature. People were pulling out bed mattresses, TVs computers, plastic/glass bottles, paint cans, water heaters, truck bed liners, even cars from different areas out there. There was a moment when I was picking up trash I was so angry and literally hated people at that moment and at the exact same time looked up to see so many people helping out to clean up this desert, this beautiful place that not only us but many others like to go out and enjoy and I was so thankful for the volunteers who care enough to make small changes!! It’s actually mind boggling to me that there are people that will go out to these amazing places in nature but literally not give two shits enough to pick up after themselves. If you live on this planet how can you not care? How can you not see the beauty? But to the people who can and do I thank you with all my ❤️ .
