"Virus-Laden Poo" - not a good band name

Warning: scat-focused entry ahead!

Apparently, Mt. McKinley has some sanitation problems. This begs the question, when is REI going to start selling Mountain Climber Poop Scoopers and waste baggies?

Looks pretty clean from up here!

What you bring up the mountain, you have to bring down the mountain. I think that would work, no? Like the planet Bethselamin in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

"The fabulously beautiful planet Bethselamin is now so worried about the cumulative erosion by ten billion visiting tourists a year that any net imbalance between the amount you eat and the amount you excrete while on the planet is surgically removed from you body weight when you leave: so every time you go to the lavatory there it is vitally important to get a receipt."

Perhaps Denali should start a National Park Service "Pay-per-Poop" program. Make it prohibitively expensive to leave any souvenirs for future climbers. God, I'd hate to be the ranger who has to verify that shit, as it were.

I promise a more tasteful entry next time. Really.
