The city of Canton is putting in a water line along Banner Dike Road. They have done much damage to the trees along the dike, which is very disheartening for the wildlife in the area. However, I never dreamed of the destruction that would take place among the huge old Cottonwood Trees along the river. I took these photos last month, on November 22, 2008. I plan to go back to photograph the rest of the destruction sometime next week.
While there that day, we found an eagle in one of the remaining large trees, and it makes me so sad to think of the loss of habitat for these majestic birds.
