Pastures of Heaven
|A park-like area with natural loop trails throughout.|
|Landscape accented with majestic Valley Oaks.|
|Outcrops of California Serpentine.|
|Dramatic cloudscapes enhance the scenery.|
|Like brush strokes of a master artist.|
|Intrigued by a series of distant rock formations, I hiked into the area to take photos.|
Here the earth surface buckled and thrust broken slabs of rock upward.
|Ever-changing cloud patterns drift overhead.|
|Fire once swept over this ridge leaving skeleton trees in its wake.|
|Reservoir below rock formations south of Llagas Ave.|
|Dead oak in foreground is distinctive feature of this high meadow.|
|Future industrial park: corner of Bailey Avenue and Santa Teresa Blvd.|
|Farmland reservoirs provides habitat for birds and other wildlife.|
|Hay cut and left to dry creates an intricate pattern.|
|Reservoir drains via the wavering creek bed on right.|
|Future industrial park won't incorporate meandering creek, reservoirs or "mole hill".|
farmland, then a golf course, now farmland once again.
What the future holds for Coyote Valley has already been decided.
