Believe it or not, this is where we used to live when I was a teenager. It's 75 miles north of San Francisco on Highway 1. Three miles north of Bodega Bay (of Alfred Hitchcocks "The Birds" fame).
I was thrilled to find this picture on the internet yesterday, the 500 square foot cinder block house we used to live in is still there too.
In fact the whole place looks exactly the same. This picture was taken in 2003, obviously the winter rains had not started.
I'm planning a trip to California next month and thought I would drive out to Salmon Creek (I havn't been there in 15 years) from my moms house in Davis. After that I'll drive down to Los Angeles to vistit family and friends and take my son to the Origami in Science, Mathematics and Education conference at Cal Tech.
