Rants from the Hill logoEver found balloon detritus when hiking in a pristine wilderness? In June's Rantcast, Michael Branch rants about the airlifted trash he finds in Nevada's high elevation desert, and then, along with his two daughters, decides to dump some of that trash on Utah. Read the print version here.

Rants from the Hill are Michael Branch's monthly musings on life in rural Nevada. They are posted at the beginning of each month at www.hcn.org. You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, or through Feedburner if you use other podcast readers.
