    Historic Picnic Spot and Time Travel to the same spot

    Found this reference in a local CA history book I'm reading. I edited the caption to retain the 'mystery' of where this spot is!

    Based on information in the caption and throughout the book, I was easily able to find the exact spot, and what I think is the same tree, 110+ years later.

    This is the only eucalyptus in the area, which does not automatically make it the same tree. But, the tree architecture is so similiar (multi-trunked at a low level, which is uncommon), I'm pretty sure we're looking at the same tree. I know the picnic spot is at the same place I took this photograph (again, I can't say why without giving too much away). So you probably want to know if I detected the area. Yup, and all I came away with were some old shotgun shells (12 and 20 gauge) and some modern trash. There is a thick build-up of detritus here, so I may need a heavy-duty rake to get down to where the older goodies may be hiding. Thanks for looking. - Jim

    I think this is pretty cool. I live in southern Cal. Temecula area now but grew up in Bonita. Can you give me a clue to see if I know this mystery?
