1/28/13 Out in Robinson woods in Chicago's Cook County named after Alexander Robinson (Chee Chee Pin Quay) Chief of the Potawatomi, Chippewa and Ottawa Indians which is an old Indian reservation and is an Indian burial ground which he received from the US government for his help protecting people during the Fort Dearborn Massacre. Im picking up garbage, even right behind the monument the garbage was everywhere.

January 21, 2013 - Today I was sick to my stomach when I seen the amount of garbage all over the forest just outside of Chicago. So I started picking up the glass bottles and trash and hiked it to the closest recycling drop off, I lost count of how many time I emptied bags of glass off but I would say it was about 20 times. I don't know why people would want to go out to the woods to just trash it up. I wish people were more responsible and realize that they are just wrecking the place for everyone else...
