On Friday morning we got in the Sportage and headed north to Lake Shasta. Since i never take the direct route, we ended up on some quiet back roads between Modesto and Sacramento, which brought me to these two gems.
I’ve seen them from a distance, most recently from the Amtrak that runs up the central valley. However this is the first time I have been near the site. What is now a recreation area where you can picnic, fish and camp was the home of a nuclear power plant. I can vaguely remember as a kid the controversies that surrounded this and other power plants.
Today though I find these two huge towers to be an amazing site. Surrounded by both vineyards of grapes and a solar farm.
