A Walk in the Neighborhood
Soon after arriving at the vacation house, we were settled in and ready to go explore and figure out where we were. We headed out on foot, going south along the gravel road until it came to a gate and paved road. Just beyond a stand of pines to the east, a house stood, with debris and equipment, including a backhoe, strewn around. We passed through the gate and took a right, walking up a gentle slope away from the house. A couple hundred feet in, we came to gravesite. We huddled to confer. We decided to turn around; we were getting hungry, anyway. The girls led the way back. Mt Shasta stood guard in the distance.
