crazy bum camp in Telluride

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Anyone catch this going around social media? I've seen some bum camps in my day but this is a full on hoard up on the side of the mountain. I'm betting the locals know exactly who did this?

The crazy thing is WHAT some of that stuff is. It's so random.

Yeah I like the random skis from various eras, some with boots stuck in the bindings.

More like a packrat, picking up things that catch its eye, rather than what it needs.

That took a long time to build up. Being just above town and on a trail it had to have been noticed for a long while by a lot of people. 

 

The community is partly responsible for allowing this to go on.

"cost of cleanup" sounds like a nice thing to do after a night in the drunk tank? or the school has a lunch hour program for community service? or the local ski club? or the ski hill to retain staff for the summer?

Considering how snooty snoot Telluride is I am pretty surprised they let this go on too. Must've been out of sight out of mind or something.

The snooty people aren't there all the time? Like maybe 6 weeks a year.
