A hawk enjoying a new SPL tower


They are destroying McCain Valley and the Tule Wind Project will bring 100+ wind generators to the the valley. The helicopters are flying from sunrise to sundown, the valley is being bulldozed away for tower pads and laydown areas.

I noticed they are launching the helicopters from el monte road in Lakeside (out towards el cap lake). While driving up wild cat canyon I have noticed the helicopters flying with beams dangling from them.

yeah, I was out hiking El Cajon mtn a couple of weeks ago and saw them flying thru the valley. From what I have seen they are flying pallets (skids?) of equipment, generators, etc all day long. Even had a BLM ranger comment about how large the laydown areas and access roads are. It is awful....
