It is sunny and wind is calm today, a condition is nice for collecting rubbish. We have patrolled the foot of North Ridge and collected various rubbish. A piece of cloth, plastic beverage bottle, old glove, and so on. Some of the large object that we couldn’t carry by hand are leaved there as it was. So we need to recollect them on another EVA with a vehicles later on. All the rubbish have recorded by GPS coordinates and photos data.
