This sunset shot was taken yesterday evening, 7/27/10/, looking west toward the Oregon Cascade mountain range.

Did you know? Only two manmade structures on Earth are large enough to be seen from outer space: the Great Wall of China and the Fresh Kills Landfill in New York. In 1979, there were an estimated 18,500 landfills in the nation. In 1990 there were only about 6,300, and by 1995 it was estimated that only about 3,000 would still be open. In just 16 years the number of landfills dropped by 84%. During that same time there was an 80% increase in the amount of trash generated. Seventy percent of U.S. municipal solid waste gets buried in landfills. U.S. landfills are closing at the rate of 1 per day.[www.cleanair.org]
