Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Busted! The CITY doesn't like us feeding the ducks!

Here's the link to the newspaper article:

Apparently the CITY thinks we are contributing to the continued presence in the park of ducks which should move on!  Pffffffffftttttttttt!  It's the HUMANS who visit the park who create the most messes!!!  I've seen junk food trash in the parking lots, people pull off the roses and throw them around the park, they leave TRASH all over the kiddie area...Let them solve the human problem first!

I think the ducks may have been there first, long before the park was even thought of. By us persons as Samson, my Samoyed, would say.

You know, I wondered about this when I read your post yesterday. I almost commented on it. We have a little lake here in Fullerton (Laguna Lake) and a favorite activity when the kids were young was to go feed the ducks and geese. Evidently everyone else had the same idea and the the duck population got way out of control. I can see both sides of the argument, and since the city banned feeding the ducks, I must admit that things are much cleaner, including the water quality. But it seems a shame that kids can't feed the ducks anymore :-(
