How’s the View Up There?

(photo: H. Hawk)

Recent grad Heather Hawk snapped this photo while on a plane ride high above Moss Landing.  From way up here you can see Moro Cojo Slough in the foreground, snaking out into the harbor.  Surrounding the slough are fields of pickleweed, a wetland plant known for its tangy and salty ‘pickle’ flavor.  The power plant can be seen by the two towers on the right side of the photo, and the large white field is what’s left from the magnesium oxide plant. The break in the dunes to the left of the power plant was created by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1946 to create Moss Landing Harbor.  If you are interested in the history of Moro Cojo Slough, Elkhorn Slough and Moss Landing and would like to read more, take a look at the Elkhorn Slough Foundation website.
