I had no photo for Skywatch when I left the house this morning.
We went to help a friend move into a new house and when I went to the trash cans with a box of discards the view below was before my eyes.
This is the first really clear ,warm day of the year and there is the most beautiful view of the Inland valley.
The white mound that looks like a mesa in the center foreground is really the active cement quarry/mine of Agua Mansa. The cement companies have been mining gravel and sand off of the hill that was once two or three times the current height for most of the last 100 years. Agua Mansa cement built the Inland Empire.
You are looking out from the city of Grand Terrace across part of Riverside , San Bernardino , Rialto , Colton, Fontana and Rancho Cucamonga.
