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.

What a shame, although I can't say that I am surprised. There is an area down here where I spent a good portion of my childhood and where my grandparents had their home on a little dirt road within walking distance of the ocean. It has been taken over by developers building million dollar gated communities where people only live a few months out of the year because they are wealthy enough to have winter homes in Florida. I haven't been there in over 20 years because I don't want to see what it looks like now and ruin my precious memories.
