Awesome place if you've read Jack London's novels. It's a beautiful pilgrimage of sorts to his life and history. There's a museum, his grave and even ruins of a house that he was building. There's also a wine ranch on the other side. The volunteer gentlemen are friendly. We had a great talk about the house and today's geopolitics. I appreciate their work and knowledge sharing.
Triple digit weather, volunteers were out with the golf kart to drive people around!!!!!
