SAVE CEDAR MOUNTAIN WEBSITES WERE CREATED NOT ONLY TO GENERATE SUPPORT FOR PRESERVING THIS WILDLIFE SANCTUARY BUT ALSO TO HELP THE VIEWERS EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF THE MOUNTAIN THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF PHOTOGRAPHY. ALTHOUGH MANY WORDS HAVE BEEN WRITTEN AND PHOTOS TAKEN, SOMEHOW CAPTURING THE TRUE NATURE OF ITS CHARM ELUDES US. WE WILL FURTHER EXPLORE THIS PHENOMENON AND CONTINUE TO HOPE, PRAY, AND WORK TO PROTECT IT FROM BEING COMPROMISED.
