Trash on your back

Frequent valley visitors Tim and Margot McGrath were guests at Tuesday's Vail Community Picnic at the Donovan Pavilion. The McGraths came for lunch, of course, but also to give Tim a chance to show off his favorite project these days, Trash on Your Back.

That can help reinforce ideas about recycling and composting.For more information, check out
