In early August, while on a business trip to San Diego, my wife and I recently visited our good friend Hz in Julian. Hz told us the story of Mr. Avery and Mr. Breceda and the Sky Art project and took us on a tour of the Galleta Meadows Sky Art...it was awesome! We lived in San Diego 32 years ago while I was in the military and visited Anza Borrego Desert and Mount Laguna many times. After we returned home we received a note from Hz informing us of the passing of Mr. Avery. I never met him but from what I've seen and read Mr. Avery must have enjoyed life.
