Grayson. This Stanislausian town is at an elevation of 52 feet. Supposedly there is one sex offender living there. Send a little girl down the street, carrying a basket of goodies for her grandma, and you will find him.

Idlewild, one of the Places in Placer County. On the west shore of Lake Tahoe, must be a pretty sight. But pretty cold right now.

Camsue, Lokern is the site of a toxic waste dump. Just follow any tank truck filled with spent acid or other noxious substance, you'll find it. The exit off I-5 is not Lokern Road, but some other.

K - Keough Hot Springs, Inyo County. The road to this one, off Route 395, IS marked. Never was there, from a mile or two distant, it seems to be a house or two surrounded by trees in the midst of a desert.

Old Station

Old Station is a census-designated place (CDP) in Shasta County. It is located 13 miles (21 km) north of Lassen Volcanic National Park, directly between Redding and Susanville. Old Station sits at an elevation of 4,386 feet (1,337 m). The 2010 United States census reported Old Station's population was 51. The median age was 61.9 years, with 27 people (52.9%) aged 45 to 64, and 19 people (37.3%) who were 65 years of age or older.

Old Station was once a stagecoach stop on the trail from Sacramento to Yreka in 1857. It was also a temporary military post while soldiers patrolled the stage road. It now has mostly traveler services including 1 gas station, 3 general stores, a restaurant, and many campgrounds. It is the southern gateway to the Hat Creek Recreation Area.

El Verano is in Sonoma County, near Boyes Hot Springs. Although I was in Sonoma over the weekend, I didn't happen to pass through El Verano - apparently located a bit off the beaten path in the mountains.

New Cuyama
is a census-designated place in the Cuyama Valley, in Santa Barbara County. It was named after the Chumash Indian word for "clams", most likely due to the millions of petrified prehistoric clamshell fossils that are found in the surrounding area.

Ohm is the name of at least two populated areas in California. I'll go with the Ohm in Stanislaus County, near Vernalis. I suspect an electrical generating station was once there. "Ohm, Ohm, there's no place like Ohm," right Camsue?
