Here is a pic of a giant ear of corn that is near my home. It’s located in Pepperwood, California, a former thriving community of timber and farming families.
A flood in December of 1964 wiped out many local communities, including Pepperwood. It is now home to maybe 20 residents who have small gardens. There are a few families who sell produce at roadside stands. The ear of corn is a tribute to the community that Pepperwood once was and can be found along the Avenue of the Giants.
I’ve only been to Northen California once (years ago on a cross-country trip with my grandparents) and I long to go back — this time on my motorcycle.
