Red Car Canyon: Defensive Landscaping

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 6, 2012.  In an attempt to thwart more dumping in the canyon, a neighbor arranged the logs to bar vehicle traffic in Red Car Canyon.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

A few weeks ago, a neighbor heard vehicle activity in the canyon around 5 PM on a weekend.  He saw a white truck , heard doors slamming after what was likely another neighbor yelled at the people in the truck.  The first neighbor ran down the Corralitas Public Staircase to snap a photo of the offending truck.  He saw 2 guys in the white truck, with a bunch of junk in the truck bed.  They were leaving the neighborhood as fast as possible, and the neighbor was unable to get the license plate. 

The next day, the neighbor did some landscaping with the logs in the canyon to prevent future dumping and driving in the canyon.
