Mendenhall Rejects Sanctioned Homeless Camps In Salt Lake City

A section of the Jordan River passes through Cottonwood Park and the abandoned, dilapidated campgrounds.

There is currently only trash remaining; the tents will return soon. The earth is covered with a jumble of bike parts, a small

gas tank, and broken huge gulp glasses. Anyone straying from the paved road near the river comes

into contact with an empty syringe just a few feet away from a damaged copy of the Book of Mormon.
