Pack it in, pack it out

Many are complaining about the lack of services at national parks during the government shutdown. Photos of piled-up garbage are easy to come by. Where did this garbage come from? The animals in the parks? No, people visiting the parks bring it in and leave it there. Why don’t they just take the garbage that they brought with them home?
