playing at garbage hill

I often go on a hike with my children up this hill and in the evenings it happens to have the most beautiful light. There is a row of boulders that they love to explore and play on. The hill is actually composed of garbage. In fact, we refer to it as "garbage hill". When the dump was filled to capacity it was transformed into a park. I love that that a beautiful moment could be made at a place that is not very beautiful underneath. Not a perfect solution to all the trash we produce but likely to become more common I suspect.
