Coyote Hills


This area is land that the oil companies have worked and owned. The area is slated for development (houses and probably more stores) and the Save Coyote Hills group is trying to stop the development and the destruction of yet another open wild life area. It is hills of California native shrub, prickly pear cactus, eucalyptus (not native to California) and many animals. I drive there in the early morning, just at sun rise and then Ivy and I walk the area. I have seen opossums, skunks, coyotes, all kinds of raptors (hawks), mice, many kinds of birds, and insects. It's a lovely quiet place.

Beautiful rendering of a peaceful scene. I love the hills in their natural form, too.

The city of Fullerton is hosting an informational meeting regarding the proposed development on July 8. See the press release here: http://www.cityoffullerton.com/civica/press/display.asp?layout=1&Entry=1794

Pat, this is really a lovely composition and use of color. Too bad someone wants to tear it apart.
