Mount Trashmore

Virginia Beach's Mount Trashmore Park is just what it sounds like: a park created from a pile of compacted trash mixed with soil. It's renowned as an ecological feat. Really crazy! I stopped by after work yesterday to have a run. With a temperature of 72, I was not the only one with that idea. One of my friends who grew up here said they used to be able to go swimming and windsurfing in the water, but it's been closed off for a while. 

 [The "Trash Pile" is actually the hill straight ahead.
It seems "Mount" is a bit of a stretch.]
