This amazing building is now leveled.  Where it once stood one can see rows of houses set close together.  They are high-end homes, each selling for around $400,000.  I can't even imagine that much money.

What a shame.  And now, just across the street a large area of the old forest along the canyon where Oregon's endangered native frog and native salamanders once lived, has also been leveled.  Their habitat has been destroyed.

The folks who bought the land are building a mansion and are putting in a filbert orchard.  It is a crying shame--I was sure the land they bought was a green way which could not be touched.  Mom says the frogs are gone.  All gone.

They were abandoned.

I will post pictures when I can get them.
