I ended up hitting the trail at 10:10 and took a spur that lead to a camp site to clean. I reached Santiago Mine around 11:30 where I waited thinking lunch would be at the mine and i hike up the hill to get pictures of the group as they came around the corner after a few on the hill (an hour) i decided to walk around all the pits around the building to pick stuff up, mostly water bottles, but i did manage to roll a old tire up the hill and placed it next to the trail as I did not have any place to put it. at about 1:20 i decided to head back down to see if I could run into anyone and also to head home, while picking up trash along the way. When I finally got down I waited at the bottom to get pics while taking short hikes up to pick up trash throw of or blown off the trail a bit. All in all it was a great day even if I didn't get to meet up with everyone until the end, between being out doors, helping out a area i love and seeing and hearing reactions from people I ran into who i told about our efforts, I make it done as a satisfying day!
