Photos from second annual Calico cleanup

Off-road organizations coordinated with Discovery Trails and the Bureau of Land Management, to clean up Mule Canyon near historic Calico Ghost Town, north of Barstow. In this second year for the cleanup, hundreds of volunteers fanned out across the area collecting trash, during Presidents Day weekend 2008. (more below)
