One Advancing Glacier

I visited Corinda los Trancos, the Half Moon Bay landfill, in 2009 and received a nice tour of the dump, which is wedged high up on the hillsides above Half Moon Bay. But I was not allowed to take pictures. (See The Glacier of Corinda los Trancos for the earlier blog entry.)

So I had to grab my chance when I spied it from a plane flying into San Francisco airport. Excuse the poor quality of the image.

corindaThe dump is the “scar” on between two hillside, pretty much in the center of the image. A declivity between two ridges is being filled with waste, much like a glacier would fill a valley. Only this one doesn’t retreat as the climate heats up.

For locals .. in the foreground you see Crystal Springs reservoir, with the 92 cutting across it. Sticking out into the Pacific you can just make out Pillar Point.
