Looking down from the Santa Monica Mountains towards highway U.S. #1 in the distance near Malibu, California, on the northern edge of Los Angeles, May 1975

Original Caption: Looking down from the Santa Monica Mountains towards highway U.S. #1 in the distance near Malibu, California, on the northern edge of Los Angeles. These mountains contain the last semi-wilderness in Los Angeles County, but are under the threat of development. Some 84 percent of the state's residents live within 30 miles of the coast, and this concentration has resulted in increasing land use pressure. Shoreline development has been restricted since the passage of the Coastal Zone Conservation Act in November, 1972, May 1975
