    This sounds like such fun! I will stay in the cabin on the river… and maybe never leave! Seriously, I bet it was a blast back then. Those cabins were bought as summer homes to many from the Bay Area. By the time we bought ours, most were permanent residents. So much has changed. Tom Morch and Fred Wetton told us that every summer every one would help dam up the rivers where the Zyante and San Lorenzo came together, creating a swimming hole. That was still a fun place to hang out when we first moved here in 1977. Kids would bring their horses and hang onto their tails as the horses dragged them along the river in the deeper waters. Thanks Vicki for photo!

      Carole, thanks so much for sharing more of your recollections! Bill Wright told me years ago that the 2 cabins on my property were originally built across from Tom Morch’s property on the river. They moved them to higher ground (to my property) because they kept flooding. They were probably moved sometime after the ’55 flood. That’s how they ended up on “the knoll”. Love the little tidbits! Thanks 🙂
