Highway 62 in Southern California cuts across open desert with long stretches entirely devoid of services. Out there, there are few signs of human impact—except for the litter on the side of the road. At age 55, veteran Marty Pigue lives and works out there, picking up trash to protect the environment. Pigue chose this simple life in the desert after he left the service and traveled the entire country by bike. This short film from Open Valve Studios gives a brief look into Pigue's everyday routine.
