We're getting mighty far afield of french whipping a potty trowel but hey it's not the destination, it's the journey, right? Those wombats might know a thing or two about the Leave No Trace guidelines, because as I learned them, in hot and dry places it's best to (go WAYYY off trail and) leave your doings on an exposed rock, the better to dry and scatter quickly, as those soils are not as biologically active as in damp and dank places such as my home turf, the Pacific Northwest of the US. I looked at wombats online, as I realized I wasn't quite sure about their family line. "Marsupials! and cute!" I thought, and then I read they're about a meter in length. "Wow!" I thought. "That's kind of big to be cute." And their scat, it says, is 'cubic'......!!!
But I digress from the digression.....
