Development to the east

Last Saturday, I walked up the high hill in the back development, remembering to take my camera. You can clearly see the development to the east, where the big scoop was finishing up the upper tier of levels. You can also see the trees that were not removed back in the summer of 2004 - 5 years ago - when we were so upset about their activities.

For comparison, here is August of 2004, just after the clearing had been done.

Below is the July photo, with all the green still there, before they cleared it. Interesting.

Life goes on. It appears they may have actually cleared, built up and leveled a space for an eventual Convenience Store in front; to complement the tiered storage building in the back. Now, however, they primarily are selling rock, and it appears that will continue indefinitely.

Today, we made a trip over to the storage; brought a car load over, and it all fit in the cabin - obviously good planning by us both!

It was a very good day! ;-)
