What is this?
« on: June 20, 2011, 05:21:32 AM »
Anyone know what that very rectangular-shaped plantation is just to the west of the Skyway just before the Humbug Road turnoff?  Here is a google satellite map link:

I don't know for sure but it looks like an area that was logged and reseeded.  Awfully suspicious shapes to the planting formation.  Also notice the west side of the crops have a discernible shadow possibly indicating tall foliage.  Interesting find, worth photo documentation.

If the cover provides a canopy, is dark green, it very well may be California's cash crop.

Too neat and tidy looking to be tree plantings, me thinks.

I think if it were me, I'd show Paul  the pictures, and not go very close..
