I was driving on the highway north of the county line at night a couple months ago and saw bright lights way across the way near the mouth of the canyon. A couple days ago I heard the plant had purchased the land near the mouth of the canyon, but the person I talked to wasn't sure if the plant had blocked access to the canyon or not. Has anyone been out to the canyon lately?

One of my friends was telling me that someone from Homewood canyon told them that a UFO had crashed a few canyons over and that there were all kinds of search lights looking for it. After reading your post I wonder if the lights were the same ones you were alluding to. If that is the case; how on earth could a story like that get so blown out of proportion? Though now that I think about it this was only a week or so ago.

A few canyons to the north or to the south?

No idea. Why do you ask? I was supposed to go hiking up there with friends a few weeks ago but they canceled.

What I know is that the plant has an operation there like a sand and gravel plant or something. During the summer when it was hot they worked at night and the lights they used were extremely powerful. From the highway they seemed ridiculously bright almost to the point of being annoying. Now that it's cool I don't think they're working at night. At least I haven't noticed the lights for awhile. I don't know if the operation interfers with access to the canyon or not.
