I took a look around and it is really beautiful farm country.
Great to explore on bicycle. One thing that the pictures don't convey is the pervasive smell of manure. Although at one point I was cycling through a mile-long grove of cypress and juniper trees...mmmm....it's gin and tonic season.
Cellphone coverage is sporadic to non-existent.
This is just the most magnificent ruin I've ever seen. It's almost absurdly beautiful. Looks like it was built that way by Hollywood set designers. Look carefully at the mountains in the background. See the road-cut that appears just below the peaks? That's Skyline Drive, on the western slope of the mountains.
Talk about a property that is "underwater"!
How apropos! Hey, that gives me an idea!
