Took a drive down El Camino Viejo thru San Francisquito Valley, part of the old Spanish trail from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Later on it was the stage route that went to Fort Tejon and Willow Springs, etc.. Includes beautiful oak grove on the south side of the crest of the Sierra Pelona mountains. Interesting variety of geological formations, and places where you can follow the original stage coach route, as traveled on by Deputy Cal MacLamond and company in upcoming Western (which can be read as sequel to AMARGOSA AMBUSH, or as separate story). Checked out the site of Major Gordon's stage station.
