"I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in. " —John Muir We pulled back into the driveway, our adventure through some of California's best wild and human gardens was complete. Or was it? Accompanying me on this road trip to some of California's botanical highlights were my 18-year-old daughter and her best friend. Although we enjoyed the trip, especially the time together, I think outings like this leave lingering impressions, especially on young people.

I attended the California Coastal Commission meeting in Chula Vista on July 12. Everyone in Chula Vista wanted Sunset Ridge in Newport Beach to be a park, and no one lost as they decided to push the decision off for another month. But the saddest thing about the day is the role that the city of Newport Beach plays. It was clear to me, and to some on the commission, that the city has mowed Sunset Ridge, claiming fire suppression motives, when in truth it is done to make barren the landscape and reduce nature's access.

Thank you for your coverage regarding the solar panels. I am appalled that these panels were approved and are allowed to stay. While I understand the laws that are cited, I find it more than difficult to believe that such laws permit the destruction of the entire hillside. Didn't the developer on Carnation just have his project rejected due to its perceived negative impact on the hillside? As a measurement of the sanity of this project, imagine if every homeowner along Dolphin Terrace installed a similar solar panel project.
