The Baloon Track is a baloon shaped peice of abandoned railroad land in Eureka, CA. It is heavily polluted and a lot of homeless people live there. There's an ongoing fight about it's fate between our local Rupert Murdock wannabe (the guy who started a free daily newspaper to drive the pay-for local daily out of business so he could have a propaganda monopoly) and the pseudo-liberal 'slow-growthers' who don't want big-box chain stores messing up their
real estate investments
beloved home town.
Anyway, baby-Murdock just bought it so I went and snapped some pics before he paves it over.( Collapse )
