My father, was often amazed by the level of entrepreneurship in the 
tourism/attractions in the US: people can make an "attraction" (in a 
broader sense) out of minimal things, so that people would be visiting 
/using services/ ... and, obviously, spending money.

He saw that in contrast to how in the former Soviet Union (and still in 
many parts of Russia), - beautiful natural areas are not equipped to be 
major tourist destinations, nor they are advertised. (Which, on another 
hand has a positive side: many of those things remain in more natural 
state.)


This tour capitalizes on photographing what is essentially a refuse.
:-)

Cheers,

Igor
