California Geoglyphs Endangered

An old friend of mine, Mike Boyd, recently wrote: :I have also been working on a project with wife Patty [who is a archeologist by profession] on a huge native cultural complex located next to and including Blythe California. Blythe was named after an Englishman who was a carpet bagger who stole the land from the Indians who lived there. Our friend Alfredo Figueroa has found the location of the Cradle of Aztlan and we are trying to protect it from destruction by carpet baggers; this time by solar thermal energy developers who want to pave over the whole area."
