West Of Miami

The Everglades are being partitioned, landfilled by relentless urban scrawl. This is a view from a landing plane approaching Miami International Airport from the West, overflying the tremendous transformation of the Everglades which are partitioned into huge parcels of marsh land then land filled. The dark zone on the left is the saw grass, and the green patches to the right are landfilled. This is the North West 58th street landfill (GoogleEarth this location: 25 degrees 50 minute 25 second N, 80 degrees 21 minutes 15 seconds West.)
