What always surprised me were all of the tires along the road Baja (between TJ/Mexicali and San Felipe). It had to be in the hundreds of thousands. Of course, I was never sober driving on that road, so my memory may be a little exaggerated, but the number wouldn't be far off.

I sometimes drive down to a small town called Arizpe, and from the border to about miles 20 in every mesquite thorn and branch and every cactus thorn is dangling a plastic shopping bag. It is sad but it gets better the further in you go.

We used to drive through the rezs down below Palm Springs. The juxtaposition of the desert blooming and the thousands upon thousands of Basha's bags was disturbing.

Some of the reservations I have driven through have been really clean and others are totally littered up. A lot of the trashed ones I've seen are mostly on the road between the dry rez and the liquor mart. Which really sucks all around, and it makes a scary drive. I am sure it is just as bad between dry counties in the south though, I just haven't visited them.

It is still where they go, those who dare anyway. I went to Lake Michigan a few times and from that I never found the beaches all that appealing, so I never went to Rocky Point. I'd rather be in a small dusty dry Mexican town with a central plaza, live music, and no tourists but me.

Good point. I just googled it, look like how I think of Old Mexico. Spring Break chic gets a little old after a while.

San Felipe is kinda touristy (alot of Americans live there), but still holds it's roots. Pretty safe, too. There hasn't been a murder there in 23-30 years. One road in, one road out. If there are any problems, the Feds can shut down the place with two road blocks.

Dude, you should set up some remotely activated cameras on those trails, like they use to capture images of snow leopards. Get some face shots of the camera flash scaring the shiat out of people.

Additionally, Mexicon drug tunnels bore into US and Mexican sewage mains with terrible environmental damages. On the coast and all along the border.

Mexicans treat Guatemalans the way the Mexicans cry victim of being treated in the US. In other words, the Mexican police routinely rob, beat, rape, deprive Guatemalans of any rights.

Guatemalans.. Mexico's wetbacks.

I also love in the article how Mexico makes a big announcement that all the trash on their beaches in obviously not theirs because none of it was made in Mexico. I guess if you wander around a trailer park here in the US and look at the labels of the trash everywhere, you could just blame China for all the trash, thus alleviating the trailer parks' residents of any culpability.

Mexico will never get over their problems as long as they are victims. - Its not their fault- why should they clean their beaches?

I will never forget how many times I saw human turds and toilet paper in places I would never imagine taking a shiat while in Mexico.

Did you really compare the beach at Lake Michigan to one on the Gulf of California.

From the comments, which I totally agree with.

"I found only two pieces clearly with 'Product of Mexico' labels," he said in an email."
Thats because none of these cheap plastics are made in Mexico, Mr. science guy, that does NOT mean that the trash doesnt come from Mexico. How many of those products labelled FROM CHINA do you actually think were thrown in the ocean in China? Do you really think ocean currents will carry Chinese trash to the Caribbean shores? No, thses are products MADE in China( or elsewhere) and dumped on Mexican beaches by Mexicans , or tourists, OR tossed in the sea by Americans, or Haitians, or whomever.However the labelling of said products origin country has little to nothing to do with where the trash actually came from, to end up on the beach. So much logic fail here.

I picked up a human tooth on a beach in Mexico. I thought it was a seashell. I quit picking up "seashells" after that.

I'll bet all the trash I saw blowing around the streets in Mexico flew in from outside the country, too.

You realize that the water is continuous from Point Loma and Imperial Beach, right? Therefore anything that happens in Point Loma affects Imperial Beach. We're not talking Japan to California here, the distance between Point Loma and IB is only about 20 miles. Dumbass.

I'm pretty sure that's trash that's left behind from illegal aliens in the San Pedro river (southern Arizona nearish Tucson.)

You can possibly find out more from this: http://rightwingnews.com/immigration/environmental-red-tape-used-to-p r event-border-defense/ (new window)

Sorry, I couldn't find a more primary source than that, but it's a real problem, and that is a very important area for Sonoran Desert river wildlife.

There used to be beaver, otters, jaguars along there. Stupid humans, eh?

No. I took those off the internet, that just looks like a wash or gully, but I have seen places just as trashed. And it actually has gotten much better, there have been some massive volunteer cleanup efforts, and illegal immigration has slowed.
