  • Garbage, and how not to make new animal friends.

    We try to keep a stockpile of plastic trash bags in the sliding cabinet to the right of the refrigerator, but, sometimes, they get used up. Bringing some 33 gallon plastic trash bags might not be a bad idea. You see, there is no public roadside trash pick up in Brian Head. We all have to tote our trash bags down to the local nearby dumpster; the city picks up trash from there. It's a bit inconvenient, but, you have to remember that Brian Head has a permanent local population that measures in the dozens. Roadside trash pick up is just not viable.

    And, if you consider that fact that occasionally, if you pay attention to your surroundings, you'll see a plethora of deer, an occasional elk or racoon, lots of chipmunks, and rarely, a mountain lion or a bear. Leaving garbage outside will only lead to visits from potentially unwanted guests. Considering the fact that racoon sometimes are infected with rabies (and bears, well, say no more...) you really don't want to attract the local inhabitants to your front door.

    The nearest dumpster to us is just right down the road, at the beginning of Pinehurst, where it branched off from Ridgeview. You drove past it on the way in.
