Speaking of wind turbines, here's the view of the La Rumorosa wind farm from Yuha.

The important El Vallecito rock art site from which the La Rumorosa style received its name is nearby.

That's all I see now when I drive towards Jacumba...upset

Up on the Sawtooths last weekend when I camped out for the night I could see the red blinking lights from them and both the Ocotillo an Campo turbines, blinking red lights from all over, can't imagine what it looks like from a plane. Doubt they care about La Rumorosa.

The thing I really liked about hiking in Davies Valley was you really couldn't see any human activity except the dirt road you were on and maybe a trace of La Rumorosa grade in the far distance. Not any more.
