A Coastal Treat

I climbed down from 7000 ft elevation, to camp on the beach. It was starting to get down t0 32dgs at night in the San Bernardino Mtns, and the beach would be more temperate. And to my delight, I found a treat waiting for me on the Coast. I discovered a park that was a wilderness habitat area. It boasted sanctuary for: Raptors, Snowy Plovers, and Monarchs (and though not posted, hummingbirds). The area was a meadow with forests of tall Eucalyptus trees. There was a sign announcing the Monarch Habitat area, and I looked for them there. Monarchs did not hang out around the sign; instead I observed them high up in the trees, swooping and gliding. One came down close to me, and surprised me just how big they were. This was one of the groves where West Coast Monarchs over-winter!
I think that one of the most important things we can do as landscape architects is find a way to give something back to the profession. I’m sure you can remember at least one time in your career when someone …
Sadly, Mark says that in all probability many of these Monarchs will not survive. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that some of them will find a safe place to shelter and will actually make it to Mexico to spend the winter!
Going into fall and winter meals tend to get a little more rich and little less health conscious. I am finding myself going through recipes and adapting things. Recently, I found myself looking at a classic dish and how it’s made.
