Field Trip to the Dump, Or: I love Charlottesville, Or; There is Creativity and Humor Everywhere

We have the Blue Ridge Mountains. And Monticello. And the University of Virginia. But one of my favorite places is the dump.


First of all, it’s clean. (Like a lot cleaner than our basement which, 17 years in, I basically just shoveled out. Thus the trip to the Ivy Landfill.)







It has amazing views.




Gnome at rest.

There is salvaged art all over the place —

Peaceable kingdom.
Dry dock.




curated and displayed.














The kiosk of help


Which also has great pieces. (Except the clown.)

And there are nice people who make what could be a drag of a chore into something whimsical and special.
