Leave no trace

Me jumping at Dewey Point, Yosemite National Park and the lemmings I guided there.

I taught people how to snowshoe for the first time and poop in the backcountry.

Backcountry bathroom basics: leave no trace.  Pack out what you pack in, including your waste.  You want to leave everything cleaner than you found it and lower your impact on the land.  You poop in a WAG bags, which contains something like cat litter, then you fold it up and put it in a zip lock bag.  You pack out toilet paper too.  Peeing you walk 100 steps from a trail or water source and cover up with pine needles or snow.
